Horrifically unfunny
25 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Two guys play strip poker with an Egyptian mummy. That's the level of wit, insight, and narrative depth that we get in this episode of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE, entitled THE GRAVE ROBBER, and boy, is it unfunny. If you think the idea of having an ancient mummy gradually stripping off his bandages and changing clothes with a couple of American idiots, then you're welcome to it.

For what it's worth, I hated this story. It's one of those unfunny comedy episodes in which we're asked to identify and sympathise with a couple of bumbling idiot characters and laugh at the idiocy of the situation. Needless to say we don't, and this episode outstays its welcome after about five minutes. I wish I hadn't bothered.
