Overview

Superstar producer Steven Spielberg was lured to TV with an iron-clad contract that guaranteed his series a two-season run whether it was successful or not. That series, Amazing Stories, ran from September 28, 1985 through May 15, 1987. Though the stories in this sci-fi/fantasy anthology ran hot and cold, all had the advantage of solid celebrity casts and an all-star lineup of directors, including Clint Eastwood, Martin Scorcese, Danny DeVito and, of course, Spielberg himself.

Amid all of his other blockbuster projects during the 80's, Spielberg decided to return to televison with one of the most fascinating programs of the decade. It's basically a Twilight Zone re-boot with great stories and outstanding production values. Not to mention top notch actors and directors! You'll see many familiar faces before they were famous as well as a ton of established actors. This really was a professional and inspired effort all around. Even John Williams wrote the fantastic theme! Can't say enough about this show. If you're coming into it for the first time, by all means take the chance. And if you vaguely recall Amazing Stories and are wondering if it's worth the money, it's better than you remember! It's not just a nostalgia trip, this is one set every home collection shouldn't be without.

These stories are absolutely unique, entertaining and fun to watch. I loved it when it was a series on TV, and now I enjoy watching them again on video. Spielberg is the master at story telling and delivering top rate entertainment. This is also a good source of family entertainment that you can enjoy watching with your children.

Enjoyed the DVD just as I enjoyed the program years ago. So glad I found the DVD. Will there be a season two DVD?
