    they do not make tv series like this no more on tv, it was good to be a kid growing up in the 80s.

    @ayomoss No, you weren’t the only one! This theme music scared the hell out of me when I was a kid in the 80s… When it came on I used to rush to change the channel!

    It’s crazy that this intro, which scared the shit out of me when I was a kid, still makes me feel uneasy.

    @Jigsaw765 the music is perfect! i love how when he says…the darkside, the music ends in a chilling effect

  13. singboyy says:

    shows like this was so good.

  14. PlushtarIII says:

    Not the best horror anthology, but the best opening. The Outer Limits (both versions) only come close.

    I swear that this is the suburbs

  16. Amonthered says:

  17. kaulitz89jonas says:

  18. playmker2002 says:

    This use to scare the life out of me.. Back in the day i use to cut on the news after watching this just too get the “shookness” out of my system

  19. baronvg says:

    When I was a kid in the 80s and this came on late at night, it scared the hell out of me every time. But I have to say, this cruddy 240p resolution does the intro absolutely ZERO justice.

    i thought i was the only one

    i thought i was the only one,

    The opening sequence is quite sexist, I think it would have been better if he said “Humanity lives in a sunlight world what they believe to be reality” instead of “Man/he” just to be gender neutral.

    However though´╗┐ this was made during the 80s where Reaganeque Patriarchal values were the encouraged standardized ‘norm’ hence this is quite dated (since I noticed most of these episodes don’t have strong female protagonists).

    BTW, the voice was Paul Sparer, a veteran actor who was married for over 50 years (until his death in 1999) to Nancy “Livia Soprano” Marchand, no slouch as an actress herself. Sparer died during the first season of “The Sopranos” and Marchand, of course, followed her husband in death the following summer, leaving a gaping hole in the plot line, and especially the psychological motivations of the primary character, mother-pecked mobster Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini).
