    "Amazing Stories" are just that!

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

    Entertaining and Fun

    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.

    Fantastic Series

    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.
