Glad I Was Flippin' The Channels Tonite...
18 October 2006 | by (St. John's Abortion Clinic) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen any episodes of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE in seriously like 15 years. Was channel-surfing tonite and came across this episode. I remember loving this show as a kid - hopefully it'll start coming on more often...

This installment is about a guy that moves into an apartment complex called the St. George where the rent is super-cheap. Of course, like the saying goes, if something seems too good to be true it probably is...Anyway, the whacko landlord explains a bunch of weird rules (no microwaves, no pictures on the wall, and there's a trash-quota that has to be met - among other weird requests...) - but for the price, the new tenant can't beat it. Turns out the St. George has a life of it's own, and isn't real fond of the new tenant who isn't so good at following rules...

Not quite as "creepy" as some episodes and the few special-FX are pretty cheap, but A NEW LEASE ON LIFE is still entertaining and has a fun sinister side to it. I seriously hope that TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE starts coming on again regularly - makes me a bit nostalgic for the good 'ol days...7/10
