Not bad for older kids
24 September 2006 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

Even though I grew up renting "Faerie Tale Theatre", this is an episode I didn't see until I was quite a bit older. Basically, Peter MacNicol plays a young man unafraid of anything, which is amazing considering everyone in his village is very superstitious. So, like the title suggests, he leaves home to find out what it means to be fearful. He stops at an inn, where a king and his daughter are staying, since their castle is haunted. The king challenges Martin (MacNichol) to stay in the castle for three nights, and Martin agrees, hoping it'll do the trick. All I'll say is it has a surprising ending, which I won't spoil for anyone because that just wouldn't be any fun, now would it?
