    This review is from: Rod Serling’s Night Gallery Collector’s Edition Vol.1 (VHS Tape)

    The first in the video collection of Rod Serling’s underrated 70′s anthology features two of the most noteworthy in the series’ two-year history: “They’re Tearing Down Tim Riley’s Bar” and “The Caterpillar”.

    In “…Tim Riley’s Bar,” William Windom stars as a middle-aged man that prefers the peace and comfort of his past as he must wrestle with job and personal changes of the present. This episode was an Emmy-winner for Serling and Windom deserved some recognition, too, for his bravura performance. The drama also stars Diane Baker and John Randolph.

    Windom is also the star of “Little Girl Lost”, a tale of a scientist/father having difficulty dealing with the death of his small daughter, a situation that has dire consequences for himself as well as the rest of the world.

    Jack Cassidy is featured in short segment about a crippled athlete seeking revenge on a perceived affair between his wife and his doctor.

    However, it’s Laurence Harvey in the truly creepy “The Caterpillar” that is the keeper in the set. Harvey has designs for Joanna Pettit, the very happy married wife of an older man, and decides to eliminate the competition with the aide of a burrowing-in-the-brain insect. Unfortunately, Harvey’s plans go awry and the ending is a spine-tingler.
