Trivia

This show was edited from sixty minute episodes to thirty minutes and added to Night Gallery (1969) for syndication. Because this show 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 certain 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 »

Alternate Versions

All twenty-five episodes of this series were edited to 30 minute length and were added to the syndicated run of Night Gallery, with new introductions by Rod Serling added to tie it into the other series. This was done in order to augment "Night Gallery"'s syndication package. See more »

One of those 'blink and you miss it' shows.
23 July 2000 | by Nick ZbuSee 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.
