Trivia

The Sixth Sense was edited from 60 minute episodes to 30 minutes and added to Night Gallery for syndication. Because the Sixth Sense essentially ran for one season it had too few episodes to sell to local stations in syndication, as those stations want a series with a number of episodes to keep their audience from tiring from constant repeats. By combining the two shows into one it was much easier to sell the combined package of both shows. See more »

One of those 'blink and you miss it' shows.
23 July 2000 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

This show aired in the Fall Season of 1972-73 and was quickly forgotten, probably due to it's genre (paranormal drama) and it's half-hour length. It centered on a professor (Gary Collins who actually acts in this) who explored cases of the mind, e.g. ESP and telekinesis.

Sadly, no one really remembers this series and the fact that a popular movie came out with the exact name makes it even more of a rarity. Not a bad show, it will cause somewhat of an air of suspense, all in a bite-size package.

Fortunately, this series was reedited into the syndication package of "Night Gallery" (which itself was badly edited) and can be seen wherever half-hour segments of "Night Gallery" is being shown. The only difference is in the very beginning where the typeface is different and a few more credits given to Anthony Lawrence and one other person. There is still the Rod Serling prologue (which he was paid handsomely for) and even some paintings to accent these episodes. Not a bad fate for a half-forgotten TV show.

It's two-hour pilot, "Sweet Sweet Rachel," is often aired as a movie. If anyone has a copy of this pilot or some of the episodes, please email me. I would be very interested in completing my collection.
