5.0 out of 5 stars *NOT A BOOTLEG!* 100% AUTHENTIC! June 18, 2007
Okay, I'd like to clear up a few things about these dvd sets. "Are You Afraid of the Dark" was one of my favorite shows as a kid and I almost didn't buy this dvd set, I'm glad I did. Alot of peolpe are wondering if these are bootlegs. They are not. They are 100% authentic dvds. THe show was a canadian show that Nickelodeon co-produced and released in America. The dvds are from the canadian company. Don't expect a Nickelodeon rlease of the show. They seem quite content screwing over fans of early 90's Nick, by cnacleing the release the final season of Pete and Pete, and not putting any of Salute Your Shorts on dvd either. The biggest issue people were worried about with these dvds was The first seasons packaging. It is a tri fold out cardboard case, like a standard tv show dvd is. The problem is, it doesn't include an outer sleeve to put it into. It's supposed to be that way, so don't worry. Not the best packaging, but it works. The other 2 seasons that were released do include an outer sleeve, which I definitly prefer, but the first season is acceptable. The dvds are of great quality, the picture and sound qaulity is great too. Don't expect remastered in surround sound and high def, but they are better than your average tv broadcast quality. Another question people had was about the changed opening. The first season has a changed opening. They cut the regualr opening short and added a bunch of scenes from the show cut to the credits music. Season 2 and 3 have the original opening you all remember and love. And finally, the question of altered scenes in episodes. In the first season, The Tale of The Hungry Hounds, a scene in the begining is cut where the main characters friend jumps out and scares her in the attic. It cuts akwardly instead to her reacting and doesbn't make any sense in the context. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Submitted for the approval of the midnight society December 25, 2006
Remember when you could watch great shows on Nick at Night?? Are you afraid of the dark centers on friends that gather around a campfire and tell scary tales. While the show certainly hasn't aged all that well with costumes and effects- the spook factor has. I am 24 and have been looking for this series since tv shows started appearing on dvd sets and finally they are here. I still love this show. The characters around the campfire are not the stars- the scary stories they tell take center stage. We're not talking blood and gore but stories where little girls are trapped on the other side of a mirror, or a teenage ghost is still waiting in a grave yard for her boyfriend to take her prom, or a pair of cheap glasses let you see an another dimension, or vampires move in next door and your mother invites them in. This is still spooky and the stories don't always end happily. The seasons episodes are as follows.

1.The Phantom Cab

2.The Lonely Ghost

3.Laughing in the Dark

4.The Twisted Claw

5.The Hungry Hounds

6.The Prom Queen

7.The Captured Souls

8.The Nightly Neighbors

9.The Dark Music

10.Jake and the Leprechaun

11.The Super Specs

12.The Sorcerer's Apprentice

13.The Pinball WIzard

If you are a fan of the show you must also pick up season 2. One sour note- this dvd set was not made with an outer cover. Oh well. I got over it!

4.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY! June 17, 2006
First of all, I can't rave enough about this series. I am 22 years old now and remember growing up watching this show on the Snick lineup on Nickelodeon. I used to watch all the shows that would air on those nights but I can only really remember this one the most. It was just so awesome. I would always wait for something scary to actually happen and it never did, but it was still such a great show. The fact that it wasn't violent or anything of that sort at all made it age appropriate for anyone. After everyone's repeated requests for this series to be on DVD, it FINALLY is available! At first it was only available through, which is how I obtained it, but now I believe it is available in the US. I give this 4 stars because it is such a great show and I've been waiting so long to have it on DVD. The only main complaints I have are that the case could have been made better. It is not very sturdy but the company could have at least put an outer casing instead of making it look like it was missing something. Also, the interactive menu on the DVDs play the beginning of the theme song. For some reason it re-plays the first 3-5 seconds then goes on to play the rest. It sounds like the DVD is defective but it actually isn't. It's kind of annoying but just ignore it. They could have been a bit more creative with the menus, but who cares. The front cover has scenes that don't appear to be on the first season and there is a centered picture of all members from this season. On the back cover, it only lists four. I didn't think that was fair to the other members. Also, the DVDs weren't done through a digital transfer so the quality isn't that great. I suppose it would have been better if Nickelodeon made the DVD set but hey, beggars can't be choosers, right? Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Flashbacks! January 24, 2007
Just like many of you...I am now 22 years old and still look back on my tv shows I used to watch on Nickelodeon. Slaute Your Shorts, Hey Dude, and Are You Afraid of the Dark (to name a few) have all given me great memories. Thank GOD they put this out on DVD. I just got mine today and watched the first 2 episodes....I couldn't believe how much I remember! I thought that maybe (since I am alot old now) I wouldn't like it as much....but I was wrong...this is something to watch forever and one day show my kids what good "teen TV" used to be like. Get the DVD! NOW JUST BRING MORE OF THESE KINDS OF SHOWS ONTO DVD!!!!
