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 »

Classic 1970's ESP Intrigue Adventure!
25 November 2001 | by (Sunny Southern California) – See all my reviews

I recall watching many episodes from this unique series and am disappointed it does not yet seem to be available for purchase. I'd always wondered if the last name of the ESP investigator (Dr. Rhodes) was a play on words in that it matches the first two letters of the famous ESP Researcher of Duke University, JB Rhine.

Each episode had its own challenge, with the good doctor having just enough manifested ESP ability to lead him along the trail of intrigue (remember those zoom-in close-ups of his eyes or ears, denoting his detecting psychic information pertaining to the case?)

I hadn't quite realized the other viewer's comments that at least some of the episodes apparently were repackaged in Serling's Night Gallery series, although I do recall at least one Sixth Sense episode appearing in a Night Gallery feature, yes.

One particular episode of intrigue involved master psychics seated around a table, with starry emblems floating or displayed about the darkened room, attempting to outwit Dr. Rhodes in his pursuit of their misuse of said abilities.

I think Gary Collins did a plausible job of taking the acting role seriously for this series, and would be delighted to obtain a copy of the entire series. Hopefully the original prints are still intact and available for said purpose?
