Every renter's nightmare...
5 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A NEW LEASE ON LIFE is a relatively decent episode of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE for a change. Okay, it's not perfect, with a good idea let down by some very indifferent execution and problems with a low budget, but compared to the worthless quirky and comedy episodes which preceded it, this is a masterpiece.

The storyline is a simple one in which the tenant of an apartment is confronted with the bizarre requests in his lease, such as not hanging pictures on the walls and the like. When he breaks them he comes face to face with an unpalatable truth that will have fans of the show enjoying themselves. Yes, this is quirky but it's quirky as it should be: an episode with a brain behind it instead of just time-wasting nonsense.
