Filler material
5 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm surprised at just how many filler episodes there are of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE. DREAM GIRL is a case in point; it involves five characters working at a theatre who find themselves trapped in a bizarre reality which has come about thanks to the vivid imagination of one of the stagehands.

What this all boils down to is a quirky situation in which the various characters react and engage with various odd events. The trouble is, these episodes are completely alienating for the viewer, who must sit through 20-odd minutes of nonsense before being confronted with a lukewarm 'explanation'. Needless to say the budget is non-existent and the acting is very poor. Next please.
