I'd have to go with Tales from the Crypt. Surprised that you didn't list it in the poll.

Big fan of Tales from the Darkside (even though it's a very mixed bag), Friday the 13th, Goosebumps, AYAOTD?, and Monsters. I haven't seen enough of Freddy's Nightmares to really form an opinion about it.

Yeah, in a rush I forgot to list Crypt. Still I did include the option "other" so you can vote for that one.

Went with OTHER because of Tales from the Crypt.

Darkside is a mixed bag. The final season is god awful but the first three have some good eps.

Freddy's Nightmares is also mixed with the best episodes featuring Freddy, of course.

I need to see more of Monsters. What I've seen I really dig.

Monsters is fantastic. I've been watching an episode every night since I got the set, and I really dig it. A lot more blood than we're accustomed to seeing on TV in the 80's....certainly a lot more than Freddy's Nightmares, Darkside or Friday The 13th: The Series.

I remember Freddy's Nightmare being pretty bloody at times. Didn't they air these shows so late that no one really gave a fuck what they put in them?

Ok gotcha. I only saw Crypt while it was airing. The rest were re-runs.

Out of the one's listed, the only one's I wasn't around for was the original Twilight Zone and Night Gallery.
