Summary of "The Complete 3rd Season - Spooky":
This show is a blast! Sure, some of them are duds, but it's that way with any anthology series. I like shows like The Twilight Zone, but I appreciate the twisted humor of this series.

Check out the list of Hollywood actors that appeared in the third season of Tales From the Crypt; Michael J. Fox (Family Ties), Teri Garr, Mariel Hemingway (Central Park West), Andrew McCarthy (Kingdom Hospital), Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks), Beau Bridges (Stargate SG-1), John Astin (The Addams Family), Sandra Bernhard (The L Word), Bruce Boxleitner (Babylon 5), Louise Fletcher (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Jon Lovitz (The Critic), Whoopi Goldberg (Star Trek: The Next Generation), James Remar (Sex and the City), John Rhys-Davies (Sliders), Malcolm McDowell, George Wendt (Cheers), William Atherton (Centennial), Tim Roth, Aron Eisenberg (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), John Glover (Smallville), Jonathan Ke Quan (Head of the Class), Jason Marsden (Eerie, Indiana), Ally Walker (Profiler), Steven Weber (Wings), Rita Wilson, Marg Helgenberger (C.S.I.), Richard Herd, Anthony LaPaglia (Without a Trace), Dan Aykroyd (Saturday Night Live), Kirk Douglas and Lance Henriksen (Millennium).

I like the bonus material on this set; over 30 mins more material than season 2. Some fans will be angered by the move from the digipacks to the slimpacks. I can't wait for season 4 to be announced, though I suspect we won't see another one for awhile. (read entire review)

The Complete 2nd Season - Spooky (and great) (10/30/2005)

Summary of "The Complete 2nd Season - Spooky (and great)":
I love anthology shows because you don't need to commit to watching an entire series. Each episode is self-contained, so you can sit down and watch one, two or maybe three episodes and then move on to something else. Tales from the Crypt has a certain edge to it; it's gory, graphic, and aimed at adults, and I love it!

This is a perfect set for Halloween, or any time you want some chills. (read entire review)

The Complete 1st Season - I want a Crypt Keeper plush toy! He's so cute. (7/08/2005)

Summary of "The Complete 1st Season - I want a Crypt Keeper plush toy! He's so cute.":
This is a great start to a cool series. A low-priced set with a handful (well, handful + 1) of episodes, and great extras. The documentary produced for the set is top-notch; it's one of the best documentaries I've seen on a TV set.

I can't wait for the next season, which is 18 episodes, and has already been announced. (read entire review)
