The summer 1962 reruns kicked off on 6/08/1962 with “The Odyssey of Flight 33” and ran for fifteen weeks (14 episodes were aired; there was pre-emption on 8/24). We’ll look at the first half here, which is comprised of seven episodes from season 2. Note that “The Eye of the Beholder” was aired under its alternate title for its repeat airing: “The Private World of Darkness.” As always, click on each image for a full-sized eyeful of high-definition beauty.

It confounds me to no end that several undisputed classics from season 2 were never repeated, including “Nervous Man in a Four-Dollar Room,” “The Rip Van Winkle Caper,” “Shadow Play” and “The Obsolete Man.” Meanwhile, embarrassingly awful crap like “A Most Unusual Camera” got an encore telecast. Why, Rod, why???
We'll have a look at the second half of the summer 1962 repeats in about six weeks. Things will likely be a bit quiet around here between now and then. It is summer, after all....
