    This one scared the heck out of me as a kid. It still makes my ears itch, even after all these years. *shudder* TY heh

    @here4family Try being born in 63 and having four older sisters that didn;t care if you were scared or not! They watched this every week, and I was allowed to, too. Even though I was less than 10 years old and it scared the crap out of me!!!

    But this episode couldn’t happen that way. ;-)

    Even though everybody tampered with Serling’s scripts and vision, this was an excellent series nonetheless.

    Rod Serling always looked like he needed a bath and a shave.

    My all time favorite Night Gallery. I still think about this episode. It scared me then and it still creeps me out now. Nobody could pull off creepy like Rod Serling.

    And, of course, introducing the guest stars during this season of “Night Gallery’ is the elegant voice of “Jonny Quest’s” Race Bannen: Mike Road.

    Er fy mod i wedi darllen pryfed clust yn ail ac na allai hyn ddigwydd mewn gwirionedd, nid yw yn fy rhwystro rhag bod yn seico ychydig am fy nghlustiau. Fi ‘n weithredol wedi cael gwybedyn bach yn un o fy nghlustiau ac aeth arno’i hun, tywalltwyd perocsid yn fy nghlust, ac arnofio ef allan. Ych. I ddim yn weld sioe meddygol, go meddygol, nid un ffug gyda actorion, ac mae hyn yn ddynes dlawd daeth i mewn gyda chwilen ddu anferth ym mhob un o’r ei glustiau. .

    Série antiga dos anos 70!

    Harvey did not age well–I know he had a lot of health problems and died young. Superb actor, however, right up to the end. Joanne Petit is beyond lovely.

  22. windstorm1000 says:

    I think most will agree that this is the greatest Night Gallery episode. It has a horrifying, yet appropriate irony. And no monsters or ghosts to provide the horror–simply human evil boomeranged back on itself. By the way, in defense of ear whigs–they don’t crawl into ears and eat brains–that is entirely fictitious. They are simply annoying and harmless.

    I love the way he said ‘archipelago’.
    I watched re-runs of Night Gallery in the mid 1980′s and thought it was brilliant- the shit that passes for television these days is just pitiful in comparison.

    @MissMael Totaly off subject of the tv show I like the song by Iron Maiden called the prisoner and the first part of the song is the intro to the prisoner.
