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.

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.

I loved Battleground and still watch it from time to time. I've always enjoyed the story and I thought they did a great job with it. It's been a while since I've seen the rest of them, some I haven't seen since they aired. I guess 11 years now. I just remember enjoying the series as a whole although there were a couple of stories I wasn't crazy about.

My favorite is You Know They Got a Hell of Band, I had bought the collection long ago but hadn't seen it in a while, I found a copy online and just done watching it now, reminding me, that it is one of the very BEST short stories Ever written and that production of it on film could not have been more Perfect. Rock n roll heaven! :tickled_pink:
