This is so odd. I can't understand how (or why) they came up with it.

My Rating: 2 - Poor

Somehow I am beginning to think pretty much anything that had Wally Cox in it is a piece of shite.

His NG and his TZ episodes certainly were terrible.

1 from me.

You feeling a bit generous whisbrain????

It's a blackout / time filling vignette. They almost all - with minor exception - sucked. Typically written by Jack Laird or Gene R. Kearney. Hard to believe that these were actually forced upon us between and after some very good suspense and horror. little tiny pieces of crap that hurt - rather than the studio/Producer perceived help - this otherwise fine show.

Junior - 1!

I don't own the Night Gallery companion book (I keep forgetting its title), but one thing that stays with me about JUNIOR is that it's about the only comedy blackout that the two writers of the book have any affection for. I don't dislike it, but that's kind of curious.

The book is titled "Rod Serling's Night Gallery".

Yes and the subtitle is An After Hours Tour. The authors actually run a Facebook group devoted to the show as well, so it's kind of cool to get to communicate with them. And I believe they liked a few other blackouts and shorter segments as well like The Late Mr. Peddington and The Merciful.

3 stars

I feel its a satire of sitcoms : where the sitcom dad pretends to sleep, to avoid feeding babies.

Here the father has no excuse, he literally made the baby. Its kind of cute.
Just thought it was odd how the baby franky splashed the water on his forehead, inteadof directly
into his own mouth. Was this saying the monster is still in developing?

Not great, but not the worst either. In my humble opinion.
