Truly horrible
5 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

COMET WATCH is far more horrifying than any of the so-called horror episodes of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE; it's horrible because it's an attempted comedy, and it's an attempt that falls flat over and over again. In fact it's completely worthless, a dud that fails to be funny, fails at everything it sets out to be, and wastes the talent of one or two decent actors.

The story features Fritz Weaver (RE-ANIMATOR) playing Sir Edmund Halley and the ultra-annoying Kate McGregor-Stewart, who we saw way too much of in the last TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE episode, GRANDMA'S LAST WISH. I guess somebody must have found her funny because here she is in another episode. I wish they hadn't bothered because she's a failure (as is everything else in this story).
