Literally one of my very first memories of life is watching this very season of Tales From The Darkside on tv when I was 4 years old. It terrified me but I loved it. I never forgot about it. Later when I was about 18 or so I saw that some of the episodes had been released on volumes on vhs, I bought some of those and watched them. About 10 years after that they were all released on dvd and I bought all those too.
This is horror done right, and not just horror either, WEIRDNESS And INSANITY also.
This season of Tales From The Darkside has some of the Best episodes of the series. I'm not going to spoil any of the episode plots, I'm just going to say that if you like short stories that are weird, dark, insane, and original than you HAVE TO watch Tales From The Darkside, Period.
Of all the seasons of Tales from the Darkside, this is the only season where a few episodes fall flat for me. That said, "Halloween Candy" is an amazing episode. "The Satanic Piano" is pretty fun and I enjoy the visuals, and "The Devil's Advocate" has that comedy-horror admixture that makes so much of this series great. "Monsters in My Room" is a lot of fun, and stars Seth Green.
This season, despite the few hiccoughs, is still mostly epic and obviously a must have for fans of the series.
Because of two of the episodes! "Ring Around The Redhead" is a delightful fantasy. And "Distant Signals" is a perfect gem. I enjoyed the 23 minutes of this show more than I did most full SF movies - it would rank in MY top 10, despite being so brief.
