Well, let's say we spend watching re-runs of old shows or DVDs more often than new shows.

Best Answer

That depends on what you call 'recent'. To my crusty old brain, modern TV shows are just crass and I don't waste my time watching them. <br />
I would estimate that the rot set in in the late '60s - if that's 'recent' then the answer is YES.

Here's my question, what was creepy on television after The Invaders and before Kolchak?

Best Answer

Rod Serling's NIGHT GALLERY ran in the years between THE INVADERS and KOLCHAK. Probably were some other, short-lived shows that I can't remember.

Best Answer

Yeah i knew something was missing, i spoke about those 3-4 shows and included Night Gallery to a friend in email a while back and still couldnt account for the gap after Outer Limits and The Invaders for like a year and a half or so.... and the long gap after Kolchak too....

Most people got their feed with seeing the syndicated reruns sorta like star trek with sci fi for a zillion years after 1969... And the one reason Star Trek was well liked by some forces in the industry was that it sold television sets, brilliant colour film and the feeling of the cutting edge of the future, does well for a TV salesman..

No one wanted to touch the military-industrial complex much like The Outer Limits, but then again Stefano did do the screenplay for Psycho, so he knew the creep factor well....
