YMMV: Night Gallery
- Alternate Character Interpretation: The ep "Silent Snow, Secret Snow" is open to interpretation.
- Harsher in Hindsight: In "Pamela's Voice" Phyllis Diller plays a woman who died before the story began and admits that she's dead to her husband. With Phyllis's actual death in 2012, it's jarring to see her freely admit she's dead on screen.
- I Am Not Shazam: The so-called caterpillar in "The Caterpillar" is an earwig.
- Nightmare Fuel: It's a 1970s show created by Rod Serling. What did you expect? And God, the paintings are creepy as hell.
- Retroactive Recognition: In the credits, anyway, as Steven Spielberg had one of his first jobs on the show.
- Special Effects Failure: It was a budget show of the seventies. Of course the effects have trouble staying up.
