doesn't live up to the tale...totally
2 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

I watched this show with my son one night. I rented it thinking it would match up to what the original story is. My son had to be put to bed early because he was either frightened of a scene or just plain bored. If your looking for a good Faerie Tale theatre episode, see the frog prince or aladdin. Rip van Winkle was obviously never at the peek of the series success. But I did think it was, "okay." It doesn't deserve much else.
