For those of you sci-fi/fantasy lovers, there are lots of great TV shows out there, many of which are being reviewed and discussed on this website (Falling Skies, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, etc. etc.). But there is a population of us out there that doesn’t get to watch the shows as they appear on TV, either from lack of cable or in my case from working an insane and inconsistent schedule in the medical field meaning I can’t sit down and watch a show at the same time every week. I guess I could “TiVo” it but alas, not technologically advanced enough nor am I motivated enough. So how do I get my fill of sci-fi and fantasy TV shows? Thank god for the invention of blu-ray and DVD. I wait until a season is out on blu-ray, order it, and then get to watch an episode a night (or more), rapidly engulfing all of the wonders of the season in the course of a week.
But this does leave me a little behind the times on the shows that are currently out there, and leaves me with more time to watch other shows while I wait for the latest season of Falling Skies on blu-ray. And it’s let me look for old TV shows that I used to love on Amazon to rekindle my obsession with them. I am going to report to you about some of those “Oldie but goodies” here on this section of “Tales from the Crypts: An Introduction to the Best Retired TV Shows Out There”. Here I will tell you about TV shows that are no longer airing that I would strongly recommend you go out there and get the series to watch and re-watch.
