Re: Live In Front Of A Studio Audience: Norman Lear’s ‘All In The Family’ and ‘The Jeffersons’ -- 5/22/19

Re: The Twilight Zone -- new film in development

People in the comments section characterize Sixth Sense as boring and a disappointment, especially when included in the mix with Night Gallery. They'd prefer MeTV omit the Gary Collins series.
