Weird but nonsensical
23 June 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Grandpa is convinced that his destiny is with some train that wrecked decades ago. In the end, the train comes for him--with ridiculous results.

This premier episode of "Amazing Stories" seems to encapsulate what was wrong with this Steven Spielberg-produced show. While the series had excellent production values and some wild special effects, the quality of the writing seemed irrelevant. A few of the shows were amazingly good but too many had one-dimensional, almost cartoonish, characters. And, too often there was an emphasis on glitz as opposed to substance. Such is "Ghost Train"--a show with some eye-popping visuals but a story that really makes no sense at all and lacks depth.
