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 »

esp=scary fun series
1 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Sixth Sense was one of the very few TV series to delve into the psychic world as a dramatic one-hour show.Dr.Michael Rhodes(Gary Collins)is a university professor who would investigate psychic phenomena and the lives of those it affected.This was a cool show that created some eerie episodes that were best viewed with the lights out.While Rhodes was written as a rather one-dimensional character,Collins brought a warmth & intelligence to the part that made you like the guy.The ESP aspects of the show would be shrouded in a mystery-of-the-week plot.Haunted houses,visions,ghosts,premonitions,psychic powers,you could look forward to chills from such stuff each week.Sadly,the show was re-packaged to run as part of the reruns of the fine Night Gallery show.But they cut the one-hour series back to 30-minutes in doing so,which makes the half-hour episodes incomprehensible & rushed.Still,it was a creepy show for its era(1972)and it was able to do it within the restrictions & lack of imaginations of the network.The X-Files was able to take the concept much further & with the benefits of later day technology & fx.But The Sixth Sense walked the path earlier.
