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 ›

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!

Verified Purchase
This collection of "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" episodes and the other so-called "seasons" available on AIV (Amazon Instant Video) are NOT the actual episodes from the various seasons at all. Instead the Amazon Instant Video seasons are actually 7 episodes (each season had 13 episodes) from all of the various seasons put together in what should be more accurately named AYAOTD Anthology 1-6. The first episode of Season 1 is "The Tale of the Phantom Cab," "The Tale of Laughing in the Dark" is episode 2 of Season 1. You can find the list of the "Are You Afraid of the Dark" episodes in their correct order along with the corresponding seasons online at Wikipedia.com. But be forewarned if you choose to purchase the AIV Are You Afraid of the Dark seasons like I did know that you are NOT getting Season 1-6 at all.

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!!!!

I love this show so much! It made my childhood so much more awesome. I loves all the stories and would love the collection to relive all the fun. However I was taken aback at how expensive one season is! There isn't even that many episodes and it's over $100 dollars!!?? You can get a box set of a series for that much money. For this reason alone I will not be buying it. It's a shame because I love this series, but I cannot justify spending this much money on one little season.
