Back when I was younger & partied way too much, I knew it was time to call it a night after "Insight" aired in the wee hours of Sunday Morning. For a production by a non-secular order (The Paulists) it was surprisingly non-preachy, but probably the reason the long running anthology seems to have been overlooked & underrated.
The writing was always top-notch & was successful in prompting the viewer to think about the age-old problems confronting man, albeit in a modern setting. The writing also seemed to avoid conclusions, rather, it seemed to focus on making one think about important questions.
The actors were also some of the best of their day. I remember Martin Sheen as appearing in multiple episodes, as did Harold Gould. Jack Albertson was in at least one episode (along with Martin Sheen, entitled "And The Walls Came Down" in which Sheen plays God to Albertson's old man). I also seem to recall other actors such as Linda Lavin, CArroll O'Connor and Teri Garr, although I am less sure on these three.
