Discuss Night Gallery

Item: Season 2

Language: en

Type of Problem: Incorrect_content

Extra Details: Night Gallery combines multiple mini episodes into one actual episode. It appears that these were entered as individuals instead of being split properly. If you look at the iMDB page (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0065327/episodes?season=2) for the show you can see how the episodes are meant to be.

It would appear you have Season 1 correct, but please review each season.

Correct episode layout: 01 - The Boy Who Predicted Earthquakes/Miss Lovecraft Sent Me/The Hand of Borgus Weems/Phantom of What Opera? 02 - Death in the Family/The Merciful/Class of '99/Witches' Feast 03 - Since Aunt Ada Came to Stay/With Apologies to Mr. Hyde/The Flip-Side of Satan 04 - A Fear of Spiders/Junior/Marmalade Wine/The Academy 05 - The Phantom Farmhouse/Silent Snow, Secret Snow 06 - A Question of Fear/The Devil Is Not Mocked 07 - Midnight Never Ends/Brenda 08 - The Diary/A Matter of Semantics/Big Surprise/Professor Peabody's Last Lecture 09 - House - With Ghost/A Midnight Visit to the Neighborhood Blood Bank/Dr. Stringfellow's Rejuvenator/Hell's Bells 10 - The Dark Boy/Keep in Touch - We'll Think of Something 11 - Pickman's Model/The Dear Departed/An Act of Chivalry 12 - Cool Air/Camera Obscura/Quoth the Raven 13 - The Messiah on Mott Street/The Painted Mirror 14 - The Different Ones/Tell David.../Logoda's Heads 15 - Green Fingers/The Funeral/The Tune in Dan's Cafe 16 - Lindemann's Catch/A Feast of Blood/The Late Mr. Peddington 17 - The Miracle at Camafeo/The Ghost of Sorworth Place 18 - The Waiting Room/Last Rites for a Dead Druid 19 - Deliveries in the Rear/Stop Killing Me/Dead Weight 20 - I'll Never Leave You - Ever/There Aren't Any More MacBanes 21 - The Sins of the Fathers/You Can't Get Help Like That Anymore 22 - The Caterpillar/Little Girl Lost 23 - Satisfaction Guaranteed

I agree they should be fixed with a proper source, but I think they might be better as individual episodes. IMDb is a confusing mess. :thinking:

Confusing... perhaps. However, users of Plex or other systems of the like that rely on TMDB for episode information struggle when episodes are inaccurate.

Sorry to jump on an old thread but this still has not been fixed.

@banana_girl I'm quite familiar with this anthology show. Skip if not interested, but the history is that rather than trying to stretch / squeeze a short story to fill a 1 hour broadcast window, Rod Serling and his team had the idea to instead pack anywhere from 1 to 4 short stories into each episode depending on their length. Was a brilliant idea as it gave them the flexibility to make a story as long as it needed to be for artistic purposes, and then they could mix and match when editing to build up to the contractually required 51 minute block they had to deliver. The audience also benefited from getting a bigger diversity of stories! (They're really pretty good :)

It's slightly confusing for us meta-data cowboys, since each episode contained often more than one short story, usually with a completely different cast and crew. But it makes sense once the context is understood.

FYI: Wikipedia has perfectly reflected this truth, it is not confusing once you know what's going on.

Season 1 was entered correctly in my opinion.

Season 2 and 3: the current data is simply inaccurate, as it is impossible to view the sub-stories individually, alacarte. They were always edited together into a single 50 minute block, with Rod Serling providing witty segues between them, and they were broadcast that way in a one hour time slot. On DVD they are still presented this way as it is simply the nature of the creative work.

I'm going to try and fix season 2 and 3 over the next few evenings, provided I have the access rights. Let me know if i do anything wrong.

All the best,

Just following up, as I've just cleaned up all of the seasons.
I have marked all of the duplicates that need cleaning up by punting them out of the way to episode 100 or higher.
Dear admins, please delete when you have time. Thanks! :relaxed:
