    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.

    I own the original shows on dvd that were suppose to go to TNT television...but, i lucked up and own the box set that was not offered to the public. It has a white pillow with name of book and tnt we know drama embroidered on it and the cast photos and folders inside....made for TNT but never made it to the broadcasting station.

    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:

    Good yarn in the best Lovecraftian style. The TV version was spoilt somewhat by the ludicrous depiction of Crouch End. It bore roughly the same likeness to London as Utopia Planitia does.
