5.0 out of 5 stars Great story telling will always be great., 29 May 2007
This review is from: Tales Of The Unexpected - The Complete First Series [DVD] (DVD)
At the time of writing I have been watching this on ITV3 on Freeview and absolutely loving it. As a kid in the 80's I occasionaly used to watch it last thing on a sunday night at my nan nans and remember finding it a little bit creepy in a strange sort of way. It has a good mixture of crime, comedy and just complete weirdness. Some episodes are dark and some uplifting but always with some kind of twist at the end.

Apart from being a little dated the stories are just as enjoyable and far more imaginative than most of what is on T.V. these days and that for me will always be the most important thing in a programme however old or new. For some reason and I am not sure why but there always seems to be an American featured in it (not that it matters but I have just become curious as to why this is).

Anyway, if like me you love programmes similar to this for example Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits etc., then I would definitely recommend that you give this a chance if you have never seen it before. As with all these type of programmes there will probably be some episodes that you like less than others, but overall there is something for everyone.

At the time of writing I haven't got any of these boxsets so I can't judge the picture quality but trust that it is at least as good as the ones that have been shown on ITV3 and so I will definitely be buying them eventually.

Cannot be as bad as ATV's THRILLER series where there was an 'American' in nearly every episode..and some Brits doing a dire and phony (reach-for-the salts) accent!
