    For those of you who remember this excellent series and were allowed to stay up late at night Universal Studios Home Video have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Night Gallery: The Complete First Season for 24th August 2004 with a retail price of $59.98. Night Gallery was creator-host Rod Serling's follow-up to The Twilight Zone. Set in a shadowy museum of the outre, Serling weekly unveiled disturbing portraiture as preface to a highly diverse anthology of tales in the fantasy-horror vein. This variety of material brought with it a variety of tone, from the deadly serious to the tongue-in-cheek, stretching the television anthology concept to its very limits. This three disc set contains twenty Night Gallery stories, including the original pilot and the complete first season. :thumbsup: :clap: :clap:

    Some of these episodes used to scare the Sh*t out of me.

    Superb!

    And of course the pilot - consisting of three stories - contains an early directorial effort from a certain S. Speilberg! :thumbsup:

    Didn't see too many of these, but quite a few of the ones I did stick in the memory. An adaptation of Lovecraft's "Pickman's Model" comes to mind.

    Ahhhh... I have such fond memories of watching repeats of this in the wee small hours on LWT.

    Didactic, twist-in-the-tale SF/horror, was there ever a more noble progenitor than Rod Serling, fag in hand?

    I love this stuff. I wish it still thrived.

    -- Ah, all alone at last! Now I can read all those precious books... *glasses fall off nose and break* No, it's not fair! It's noooottt faaaiiirrrrrrrr!!!!!

    (Yes, I know it was the Twilight Zone, but it's nearly the same thing, innit).

    :)

    regards,
