1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    So far I watched 2 episodes from the show: Crouch End and Battleground. I liked Crouch End, probably, even better than the story. But as for Battleground, here I liked the story much better... Well, as usual - nothing like a good book!

    What do you think of the show? Did you like it? What is your favorite episode?

    Hey Lina - I just watched an episode on YouTube called "You Know they got a Hell of a Band" from Nightmares and Dreamscapes. I have read the story and I thought their interpretation of the story was really good! I was pleasantly surprised. It was 44 minutes and 15 seconds and they stuck pretty close to the story line. I would recommend this episode.

    I didn't even know this was a show! Dang - is it on Netflix? Or real TV? I'll go google.
    Oh, I see - 2006 - I was up to my eyeballs in toddlers then, but I'm going to catch up.

    I thought Crouch End was very good. Whole story had a very creepy feel to it.

    I saw Crouch End too. I really enjoyed watching it, I mean because of the interesting storyline and good acting, but the effects... Oh, the effects. :O_O: If they're so bad why to make them at all??

    Crouch End the story is so much better than the TV episode, not just in terms of the not-so-good special effects, but also the acting which wasn't top notch (except for the creepy cabbie). The best two episodes of this show was definitely The End of the Whole Mess and Battleground.

    Awesome movie. All the stories were great. Battleground, Love the soldiers coming to life. I think I also saw an "Homage" to the Zuni doll in "Trilogy of Terror". Trilogy of terror I saw as a child and have never ever really gotten over it. Now anytime I see an African doll I won't go anywhere near it, nor anything similar. That movie absolutely freaked me out, nightmares for awhile. My son however got really creeped out by "Crouch End". Funny what things really creep us out, and stay with us as an adult. I wonder why Stephen King payed "Homage" to the Zuni doll. Makes me wonder if he got spooked by that movie as well. If so, makes me feel that I am not alone. So, many people laugh cuz that movie was so cheesy (Trilogy of Terror) but yet so freaky to me.
