Loved this show when I was a kid
19 January 2018 | by celticwandererSee all my reviews

I often think about this show. It was an amazing show and sometimes for an eight year old it was pretty scary. I remember one show where someone was walking through an alley and you just knew something bad was going to happen. I walked through an alley like that on my way home from school. After seeing that showed I walked through it really fast. I wish these shows were on DVD. I would love to see the episodes again.
