When I was in the fourth grade the Goosebumps books became exceptionally popular. Every month when scholastic came out almost every kid would buy the latest book. When the TV show came out, I don't remember the excitement being at quite the same level.
Looking back at the show lately (I can't believe it still comes on), I can see why I wasn't such a huge fan of the show. When you are reading the book, you can imagine the monsters, make them as scary as you want (granted the books were mediocre at best). In the show, it was all displayed in such a banal way that the only people who can get scared are five year olds (and they probably don't get nightmares). What do you expect? Movies that are labeled horror movies don't even scare people anymore, we are beyond that. We know what to expect. Does anyone anticipate a children's show to break new grounds to scare us?
I don't know what I'm trying to conclude, but this is not a quality show and everybody knows that. It is however a children's show, and children's shows tend to be a little shabby. Except Arthur, now that's a good show!
