| Very inconsistent. For every 3 or 4 bad episodes, there appears to be one good one.
It's hard to judge this show in its entirety as there are probably only about 12-20 episodes available today (at archive.org). Most of the early shows (from 1946) were never recorded and don't exist any more. Based on what I've seen, this isn't exactly a tragedy! Compared to another similar anthology series from about the same time ("Tales of Tomorrow"), "Lights Out" is pretty limp. Both shows suffered from very poor budgets and the crudeness of early live television--but "Tales of Tomorrow" worked despite this because the writing was so good. As for "Lights Out", for a horror series, it was seldom scary and often overplayed and was seldom subtle. However, a few of the shows are quite good--such as "Dead Man's Coat" and are so good that the horrible ones like "Jasper" might just be worth wading through despite this! Very uneven and mostly second (or third) rate.
