Commercial Break: Night Gallery (1970-1973)

From the creator of The  The Twilight Zone , Rod Serling, came a tv series exploring stories of horror and the macabre.  We pay homage to the nearly forgotten series that was Night Gallery.

Serling served as both on-air host of Night Gallery and was a major contributor of scripts during the series 3 season run.   But like most series that are ahead of their time, the series attracted criticism. Called out for its use of comedic blackout sketches between the longer story segments in some episodes, and for its splintered, multiple-story format, which contributed to its uneven tone.

By the final season, Serling, stung by criticism and ignored by the show’s executives, all but disowned the series.

Well, it sure was sweet while it lasted…  For those who love the series, the final and third season will be released on DVD this year, April 10th.
