Very predictable
29 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

THE APPRENTICE is another predictable story from TALES OF THE DARKSIDE and the type of thing that's been done a million times before. A young woman goes job hunting and finds a placement at a museum which features living history in the form of 16th century Puritan exhibits. Unfortunately for her, the museum is a strange place and soon odd things begin to happen...

These 1980s shows always seemed to trot out a timeslip story featuring Puritan life and this one is no different. The lack of a budget means that the tale lacks authenticity as a whole and you'll groan when they trot out the old witchcraft angle yet again. So predictable, so clichéd, so boring...
