Editorial Reviews

The world is full of urban legends tales that spread like viruses around the planet, mutating and evolving until no one knows if they are true or simply legend.

This collection from BIOTM presents stories that have taken just such a journey. They are so hard-wired into our DNA, we never think to question their truth. A few examples: universities routinely award a 4.0 grade point average to students who have suffered the loss of a roommate. A business man awakes from a one-night stand in a tub of ice water to find his kidney has been stolen. A killer leaves behind a message written in blood, Aren t you glad you didn t turn on the lights?

Each episode of URBAN LEGENDS presents three such tales, some shocking, some amusing, some frightening, some just bizarre. The catch? At least one of the stories is true. All is revealed at the end of the show.

DISC ONE (8 episodes, approx 176 min): It Seemed Like a Clever Idea / When Animals Think / What a Way to Go / Mixed up in Crime / Cheating Death / No Excuses for Stupidity / Fickle Finger of Fate / Neighbors

DISC TWO (7 episodes, approx 154 min + 40 min bonus): The Stuff of Nightmares / Good and Evil / Mail Mix Ups / Marriage and Affairs / The Dark Side / The Human Body / Weird Woundings / Bonus: 45 "Mini-Myths"

Some people might find this series a little cheesy, but I like it a lot. It is fun and entertaining, and with the violent and intense programming available on TV, this is a laid back alternative, a little low budget but that is fine with me. I can just relax and have fun with it. If you like quirky shows that don't take themselves too seriously then this could be for you.

Beware! This is not the show Mostly True Stories: Urban Legends Revealed that was running on The Learning Channel and Discovery a few years ago. I goofed and bought this disc, which dramatizes 3 stories per episode and challenges the audience to guess which one really happened and which ones are only Urban Myths. The trouble is if you're an Urban Legend enthusiast like me, you already are familiar with these stories and this show doesn't fill in the background on the legends like "Mostly True Stories" does. So you end up with some hokey dramatizations which would tip off even someone who has never heard the stories to which ones "actually happened". Hence, I can't recommend this DVD to anyone and now I need to try to sell the damn thing. BTW-I didn't buy it on Amazon. I wish I had since I could have saved some money.

For those interested, this is not the series "Mostly True Stories: Urban Legends Revealed" from TLC. This is a series that aired originally on SyFy and is now seen occasionally on the Chiller Channel. The episodes are 30 minutes long and each episode contains three stories that re-enact popular legends or real events, complete with "commentary" from individuals involved. After the three segments are shown, you are to guess which of the three segments is true. In later series, there are times where more than one story is true. In the cases of the legends, the "commentary" is fake and done by actors, but in the real stories, the actual people involved provide the commentary. While I like this less than MTS:URL, I find this to be quite refreshing and nice.

Admittedly, the series was not something I immediately fell in love with, because many of the stories I could tell due to reading them or watching on MTS. However, there were quite a few that I had not heard of before, both real and false. Once I saw an episode with this, I basically turned 180 and became a fan. Yeah, some of the segments are cheesy, but I feel it gives off a better vibe with it. It's like a B-movie horror flick in that it's meant to give you satisfaction while not completely terrifying you.

There is just one thing I have to say though. The Blocky format of the title text on the purple and black cityscape background is creepy. The first time I saw it, it scared me. I once fell asleep watching this at night, and woke up to the main menu with the eerie theme playing around 3 in the morning. Suffice to say, I did not fall back asleep that night. Nonetheless, it's a great series worth watching, whether you've seen MTS or not.

Interesting to someone like me who loves a good little mystery and challenge every once in a while, but i wish the set up wasn't so corny
