Tales from the Darkside / from the Crypt etc

Anyone remember Tales from the Darkside? Or Monsters? Why haven't we seen a show like Tales from the Crypt since Tales from the Crypt? Would it still work, or do we need an ongoing plot these days?

I loved Tales from the Darkside. I used to watch it up in my parent's bedroom because I couldn't get either of them to turn it on the big TV in the living room. I would get so creeped out by the opening voice over. I think my favorite was with the woman in prison who cons the handyman/janitor to help her escape in a dead inmate's coffin. But it turned out to be his and she didn't know it until she was buried. Eeesshh...

I love Tales From The Darkside. Funny thing though -- the opening credits scare me more than the episodes! I totally agree about that voice...brrrrrrr.

Forgot to answer above:

Yeah, I think a show like this would still work. The newer Outer Limits, which they also still show on SciFi, worked fine. Why everything has to be a continuing story anymore is beyond me.

I want them to bring back Tales from the Darkside. Just watching the intro made me pee my pants. I think just regular non-going episodes might work. But it would have to be really good. These new generations of kids are not easily empressed.

Seriously, Tales from the Darkside got you right from the intro! I wish it would get released on DVD, that show is a staple of my childhood.

I think a show like that would work today, I personally prefer single stories over ongoing plots because I don't have to see every episode to know what the hell's going on. Not everybody can have work schedules built around TV schedules.

I used to stay up every night to watch it at 10:00 or 11:00 or what ever it was when I was in high school.
