Taste for Beef
Best one of the season so far, and one of the best overall.
It has a good sense of humor about itself, and stars the legendary Christopher Reeve.
The story is about a couple owning a restaurant. They cook squid but their little business isn't doing too well.
Their landlord tells Ted (Christopher Reeve) that he is kicking them out. There is another guy in the picture, Gaston. Who decides to kill the landlord and cook him for dinner.
Human meat turns out to be a huge success.
There isn't a real twist here, and what you expect to happen eventually does happen. But somehow it all works so well.
It's a funny episode, not a lot of gore but very satisfying and it has somewhat of a happy ending (except for Gaston).
Tales from the Crypt: Beauty Rest (1992)
It's what's inside that counts
Rather forgettable episode in my opinion.
The episode is about an aspiring actress/model who murders her roommate out of jealousy. Her roommate gets all the parts by sleeping with producers.
So she decides to kill for a beauty pageant part. The winner gets to sell themselves.
What Helen did not know is that the winner could become Miss Autopsy.
The twist was predictable, so it made the build up work poorly. The characters weren't very likable either.
However, it was enjoyable to an extend but not an episode to remember.
Tales from the Crypt: Seance (1992)
Fun little con story with a ghost twist.
It's about two con artists, they try to blackmail a rich man into giving them a ton of money.
Unfortunately, it doesn't work out well for any of them. He falls down an elevator shaft and is squashed by the lift.
They try to con his blind wife into giving them the money, by playing up a ghost act. Unfortunately for them, he returns as a ghost and his vengeance was incredibly sweet.
Original con horror story.
Fun episode, if not a bit silly.
Rock 'n Roll trouble
A pretty average episode, not as strong as the previous ones. But still quite entertaining.
This is the only episode with full frontal male nudity, albeit very brief.
The story is about a rock band, and it's lead singer has trouble getting along with the to-be-wive of the guitarist.
One of his lady friends shows him her new tattoo, which is a snake that comes across as being alive.
He likes it so much that he goes to the tattooist and his tattoo ends up being Scarlett. She is that deep within his skin.
After removing the tattoo, it just keeps coming back and even after killing her, she continues to live within his skin.
I enjoyed the ending very much, which practically saves this episode from being forgettable.
Prank gone wrong
A very enjoyable, and somewhat trippy episode.
It's about a research team, the leader, George, is somewhat of a dick.
After his two co-workers discover the cure they were looking for. They decide to play a prank on him and inject him with, what he thinks, are tumors.
He finds out and thinks that they tried to kill him, so he murders one of them and takes him to the cops.
In the end, he turns out to be OK and he murdered someone for no reason.
Dylan McDermott did a great job as George and I enjoyed the little twist. Fun episode.
A great start to Season 4! This episode was gory, funny, well-written and full of incredible guest stars.
The episode is about a con man who made old rich ladies fall in love with him, until he poisons them and keeps their money.
The episode had a high-body count, with some of the deaths being pretty cool. Tom Hanks in particular as he gets thrown into a TV screen and gets electrocuted.
One of the most memorable endings yet also happens in this episode as the man is driven to the graveyard by a gravedigger where his dead wives await him and apparently eat him/tear him apart.
Overall, one of the better episodes yet.
Tales from the Crypt: Yellow (1991)
A war story
An extraordinary achievement for Tales from the Crypt.
One of the best things about this show is that not all episodes are horror -- and usually the ones that aren't, are top-notch.
This episode is about a cowardly soldier during World War 1, his father is a general and feels deeply embarrassed for his son.
During his most important mission, he fails to do anything and lets his men die. This causes his father to sentence him to death.
The guy, Martin, is afraid to die so his father explains to him that he will swap the bullets in the guns with blanks. The only favor he asks of his son is to pretend like he is courageous during the 'fake' execution.
Well, turns out that he didn't swap the bullets with blanks, he just wanted to have his son die like a 'man'.
The episode is very well written, especially for this show's standards. And the performances are top-notch, loved to see Lance Henriksen make another appearance.
Overall, one of the best, if not the best episode of the show.
Tales from the Crypt: Spoiled (1991)
One of the funniest episodes of Tales up till now. I love episodes that are different from others, and despite this not being horror, or scary in any way. It sure did entertain.
The episode is about a sleazy housefrau that watches way too many soaps. She idolizes this sexual character on TV that sleeps with whoever she wants to.
Her own husband is a doctor, but he is busy playing with a bunny to notice her. So she starts quoting her idol and starts sleeping around with the cable guy.
Eventually, it comes back to bite them as her husband catches them in the act and switches their heads and bodies.
Overall, a tame but very funny and well-done episode.
Tales from the Crypt: Deadline (1991)
An okay episode of Tales from the Crypt.
While I appreciated the more... realistic angle of the episode, and the decent performances. as far as these type of episodes go, it could have been better and less predictable.
The episode was predictable from start to finish, and the plot was minimal.
The episode shows a side of humanity that most people carry, jealousy, addiction and the will to do whatever is best for your own good.
The lead character was pretty unlikeable, but the actor portraying him was one of the better actors in a while.
The Second season premiere is a slight slow-burner, but at the same time contains everything that I would wish this show to have.
It starts with a delightful opening, showing certain characters dressing up and getting ready for work. With the song "Twist Again" playing in the background.
Although it may feel like not all that much happens, it is the beginning of what is to come. There is brand new technology over at Sterling Cooper and Duck orders Don to hire new, younger staff.
We witness a more confident Peggy, trying to teach Don's new secretary; Lois, how to be a successful secretary. There was no mention of what went on after the last we saw of her. But the ad guys sure are gossiping about it, and we notice her painful reaction to Pete's question on whether she would want children or not.
Betty's character is also given much spotlight. Her marriage is just getting boring, especially for her. Don cannot even get it up for her during valentines day.
The book 'Meditations in an Emergency' gets mentioned a few times in this episode. and the closing scene is a quote straight from the book read by Don as he, presumably, sends it to Anna Draper.
Overall, it was a strong episode that Pro and sparked much interest for the second season.
I give it **** stars.
