The only problem I had with Night Gallery was Serling's Mike Brady hair.

Loved this show as a little boy. The Caterpillar is the one episode that stood out in my mind when I was little. I bought the first two boxsets, but did not buy the 3rd. Is it worth it???

The third series has some great episodes: Return Of the Sorcerer with Vincent Price and Bill Bixby, The Girl With the Hungry Eyes, The Other Way Out, Death On A Barge and Whisper. Worth checking out for sure!

Well, at least it wasn't the Mike Brady/Greg Williams perm of the final years. That was rough.

The Brady Bunch was a horror show in it's own way.. ;)

Just finished watching episode: Silent Snow, Secret Snow.  This has been by far my favorite episode.  Partly because I love the snow, and partly because Orson Welles did a fantastic job narrating the episode.  Kind of reminded me of how Jean Sheperd narrated A Christmas Story. 
I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity...

Here's the story of a grisly lady
Who was digging up three very lovely ghouls.
All of them had spacious tombs in the graveyard,
Their plots were by the pool.

Here's the story of a mad mad doctor
Who was digging up three guys of his own.
They would form one, but all together...
Like Frankenstein all sewn.

Until the lightning hit the castle by the city
And the Frankenguy and Ghoul soon came to life
Then they both tied the knot and married
And, together, they began the Frankenlife!

The Frankenlife!  The Frankenlife!
This what we all call the Frankenlife!

GREAT topic, very cool show.

" The Caterpillar " 1972           ***spoilers ***STOP READING NOW if you have not seen it...

A nasty little carnivorous insect crawls into Laurence Harvey's ear as he sleeps; it proceeds to burrow through his middle and inner ears and into his brain. Harvey is tied down to his bed and writhes in screaming, tortured, insane agony for days, as the bug EATS its way through his head and emerges through his other ear. The attending physician is amazed --- he's never even heard of anyone surviving this ordeal, and yet Laurence Harvey somehow manages to pull through it. Until, that is, the earwig is identified as a female, and the doctor solemnly informs Harvey that the thing apparently LAID EGGS on its way through his brains.

I've been checking the listings on ME-TV's airings of "Night Gallery"for months  and have waited in vain to catch "Sins of the Fathers" with Richard Thomas, Michael Dunn and Barbara Steele. Anyone been watching this? Did I miss it, or are they not airing it?

I dont know if it has aired recently, but I do remember seeing it back in the spring, around late March-early April sometime..

Thanks, Memphremagog. I just wanted to know whether or not ME-TV is airing it at all, or if I just have missed it. Looks like I missed it and should keep my eye open!

The Boy Who Predicted Earthquakes , also really really creeped me out even though there were no monsters in it ,for weeks I kept worring that the sun was going to go supernova.
