* NobleBigotWithABadge: Harly Clay from "Threepersons". He can't get over Tom Threepersons being a Native American (he usually calls him "Cherokee", which Tom hates), but invites Tom to join his task force because he respects Tom's abilities. [[spoiler:At the episode's climax, when Tom goes to fight the bad guys on his own, Clay repeatedly tells him that he won't be able to provide backup, but does so anyway in a prime example of ChangedMyMindKid.]]

The show was fairly popular in its day. Still, it's not nearly as well-remembered as competitors such as ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'', ''Series/AlfredHitchcockPresents'', or radio's ''Suspense''. One possible reason is confusion over the name; the series obviously couldn't retain the title ''Kraft Suspense Theatre'' in reruns, but it somehow got ''two'' {{Syndication Title}}s, ''Suspense Theatre'' and ''Crisis'' (no relation to [[Series/{{Crisis}} the 2014 series]] with [[SimilarlyNamedWorks the same name]]).

** In "Leviathan Five", four scientists and a guard are trapped in an underground lab. There's only enough oxygen for four people, so one of them has to [[HeroicSacrifice die to save the others]]. What now? [[spoiler: When attempts to randomly choose the victim fail, one of the scientists kills the guard. After all four scientists are convicted of murder, the killer confesses to spare his colleagues.]]
