    This was a great series on a low budget but some of the stories were really great and scary. The one area that was not great was the video quality? Yeah from the 80′s but still should have been way better. Extremely soft and have to watch on computer because the big screen really looks fuzzy with these episodes.
    Agagin their great stories and would still purchase it. I recorded a bunch off tv and they even seem better so not sure how CBS did these.

    Enjoy….

    I occasionally got to see episodes of Tales From the Darkside while I was growing up. As a kid, the show was unusually creepy. As an adult, it’s not scary at all, but it’s charming. For a TV anthology show, it’s pretty good. Sure, there’s nearly no gore, the cast and sets are limited, and there are a few dull episodes. But the show holds interest pretty well. The scripts are campy. There are occasional twists that either obvious, or they’re nonsensical.

    This season has some really nice episodes in it- I enjoyed I Can’t Help Saying Goodbye, and The Milkman Cometh (which plays very much like a Twilight Zone episode).
    There are also some really poorly done episodes. In particular, Auld Acquaintances is possibly the worst episode I’ve seen.

    There’s another one, My Own Place, which seems to be a really puzzling episode. I suspect there was a message to it, but I’m not sure what it was.

    If you know enough about horror anthology shows to not expect much, you’ll probably like this. It’s a charming series.

    The first two seasons were the best seasons! Overall, the series was absolutely wonderful! I would suggest watching episodes called, “The Circus”, “The Geezenstacks”, “Florence Bravo”, “Black Widows”, “Baker’s Dozen”, Deliver us from Goodness”, “Seasons of Belief”, “Miss May Dusa” My Ghostwriter, the Vampire”, “Let the Games Begin”, and “The Enormous Radio” But I suggest watching the other seasons first!
