Just finished the series on Hulu, sure was great. Up next is 1959-61's 'One Step Beyond', all new to me!

I bought the entire series in January and am watching one episode per week.

I loved season 1 of The Night Gallery, it was like a darker version of Twilight Zone.  But Season 2 is kind of rough to watch.  Don't get me wrong, I'm really enjoying the episodes, but they don't match the first season.

I think there was a lot of external tampering with the 2nd season.

Between the network execs and producer Jack Laird, Rod Serling found himself butting heads quite a bit during the second and third seasons..

Big Surprise was probably my favorite episode. The Caterpillar & The Cemetery would be next.

One episode per week? When I buy box sets I have to watch at least one disk at a shot. Sometimes more.

I know that's how most people do it nowadays.  I, however, enjoy experiencing something closer to the original broadcasts -- plus it lasts longer that way!

I try and watch one disc at a time.  When I don't, I tend to loose track of where I left off.  lol

Favorite episode: The Waiting Room/Last Rites For A Dead Druid  from Season 2. Great cast in both stories.

What I really love about the show; besides seeing Rod Serling in color, and getting more of his stories is -- that in some episodes you can see some of the house interiors used in Universal Horror Films.

An example is "You Can Come Up Now Mrs. Millikan." The staircase is the same one in The Wolf Man 1941. During the "Gypsy woman? Now we're getting down to it" part of the conversation between Rains and Chaney Jr. The three diamond shaped widows were still quite beautiful even in the 1970s.

You get a glimpse of the Universal village in the excellent season 2 episode "Pickman's Model."
