Wonder how they get 20 stories for Night Galley's first season? If you count the pilot (90 minute) show and the 6 eps in the "NBC Mystery Movie" (which IIRC rotated with Columbo and McMillian & Wife) that's only 17 'stories' in 7 'episodes'.

Wow! And I just checked TVShows a few minutes ago and didn't see anything new!
Great news about the Munsters. I'll buy that day-and-date. Universal is going TV-on-DVD crazy! And that's a good thing.
You know, with this coming out, it makes it that much more likely that another Joe Connelly/Bob Mosher creation controlled by Universal will be released sooner rather than later. Hint: that's a lovely DVD package you're releasing, Universal!
Well, the TVTome/EPguides.com matched up with the list on www.nightgallery.net and every other one I've ever seen (and the eps I have recorded on the HardDrive to author which I now put on the back burner since they are coming out..)
maybe they are counting the little blackout skits the show used to have. i'm not too up on it right now, and am not sure if thoses were present in the first season, but i know they were in subsequent eps.- some of those would only last 2 minutes if that and usually ended on a jokey note.
edited to add-
well, i just consulted my beloved copy of Fantastic Television, and those blackout segments look to all be from the 2nd season.
just looking over the ep guide, Tim Rileys Bar is excellant and as good as anything that was on Twilight Zone, but so many of the iconic stories i associate with this series are found in the second and third seasons Green Fingers Brenda Boy Who Predicted Earthquakes The Different Ones Fear Of Spiders Death In The Family Since Aunt Ada Came To Stay
oh God, i hope this first season sells well enough to see the second and third
First off, this is incredible news considering it's from Universal. I would have bet a sizable sum that The Munsters wouldn't see the light of day till at least mid-2005 or later - and I would have lost that money! Wow! I just didn't think Universal was committed to their older properties, but I'm really glad to hear this news.
If you are referring to Leave it to Beaver, I'm with you 100%!!! Again, I'd never even dream that Universal would actually begin releasing this classic on dvd, but with the Munsters being released, I've got hope now!

there were also two additional 'stories' that were NOT shown in the original broadcasts, but were added to the series when it was re-edited to half-hours for syndication (at the cost of part of the original stories being shorted severly in some cases).
i just realized there is no actual date or even time frame given for NG. i hope this doesn't amount to another Rockford and company tease.
oh and, i won't complain if they want to put out 20 episodes...that is still under 20 hours and would amount to a smaller set than Battlestar Galactica and only a little more content than the 'best of' Hulk set.
i would be totally up for that, as it would split the series up almost in half, which means less waiting and wondering if and when the series will be completed. and set one would then get some more choice eps. probably won't happen, but i can hope.
I posted in the other thread started about the Munsters because it was the first thread I saw last night when I got on here....I was so excited about it I didn't even look for the possibility of another thread so I may repeat myself here...
To quote Herman, "Oh goodie, goodie, goodie, goodie!" I am SOOO excited about the Munsters!!! This release is one of my most anticipated just behind Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie. I didn't think they would ever release it.
David, I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but there is a Paul Lynde biography book in the works written by the webmaster of the biggest Paul Lynde website.
