Wow. These are odd little things; 30 minute-long Tales of the Unexpected with an entirely adult twist. They are delightfully weird; deliberately obscure and dashingly presented by Terence Stamp as The Host. He sets the tone perfectly for half an hour of slightly shocking surreality...
Each episode tells a complete story, presented in art-cinema style, with various guest stars (a young Balthazar Getty, a pre-fame Daniel Craig among them) kicking out surprisingly well-rounded performances. Then there's the sex. Almost every story has a sensual and sexual aspect to it and it's a rare 30 minutes which doesn't have a shagging scene in it -- some of them artfully delicate but many with full on nudity. The record so far is a shag within 2.5 minutes of the episode starting!
There are plenty of other adult themes explored in these twisted tales too; greed, fear, love, possession, aging, monsters, madmen and fearfully predatory women. Each episode is gorgeously produced on what looks like a shoe-string budget, with the Scott brothers' experience (the series is produced by Ridley and Tony Scott's own company) lending flair to the filming.
Unexpectedly wonderful, then. A little gem tucked away in a morass of mindless TV. But the effect of watching three or four back-to-back is like fingernails running down the blackboard of your psyche: you've been warned!
8/10

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor 5 Dec 2012

Very disappointed. Despite the hype of the directors & a few of the stars this is generally a big underachievement in my view. Despite being made in the 90s the whole feel is of early 80s TV tripe!

2.0 out of 5 stars tired old tales of airbrushed porn 17 May 2012
By David Spanswick VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ideal for stag parties or bored housewives sick of patronising daytime tv. I am not too sure if the credited "authors" would be very pleased with what has been done to their stories, some of them even showed promise until the protagonists decide to take off their vests and undies and in that kind of embarrassing walking in on your mum and dad on a sunday morning way proceed to do the nasty with very little point.

Recommended for little boys 12 -16 who have yet to pluck up the courage to buy a top shelf mag.

Terence Stamp has a great time camping up the intros and outros in Hitchcock type bookending

The Hunger, a spin of to the film with Susan Sarandon, Catherine Denueve & David Bowie, who does the host part for Season 2, is very similar to a 1980's Tales Of The Unexpected, but an adult version of it, if you see what I mean. The pilot, which had a bit of foul language, takes place in London & stars from Inspector Morse Amanda Ryan from The Daughters of Cain episode, a very attractive short black hair, very sexy with it as well, you also see her topless, as a bonus, but as Season 1 goes on, the foul language seems to go down, less of it, but the acting is not too bad, even at times it seems a bit tacky, James Bonds Daniel Craig, even turns up in episode 2, it also goes around the world to various capitals as well as London, we also have Paris, New York & Berlin but towards the end of Season 1, stays mainly in the States. Narrated by Terence Stamp & like Tales, mentioned before the endings to each 27 minute episode comes with an unexpected twist, enjoyable if you enjoyed the film with some basic erotic, but not really sexy undertones, giving this a 3 star*** rating & for Amanda Ryans performance 5 stars***** cor!!!, hope she's reading this, nuff said.

2.0 out of 5 stars read before buying 15 Sep 2012
By Ed
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I should have read the reviews before I bought this - even though it only cost 2 quid. The thing is it has really nothing to do with the movie of the same name apart from the mention of the scott brothers in the credits and perhaps the opening music which is possibly bauhaus as in the original movie.
it is essentially a collection of modern gothic short stories for late night tv - some ok , some crap but all fairly old from the 70s. A few big names in the first one or two - young daniel craig. You see a variety of breasts and bums in most episodes but the sex is just there to tease and no more.
There are 4 discs, so about 24 episodes of 1/2 hour - that's 12 hours... waiting.
It will be in the charity shop next week for 50p
