Amazing Stories Season One
Verified purchase
Glad to see this season available to stream. I have both seasons on DVD but, they won’t converts true digital to stream. At least these two seasons weren’t terribly expensive so I didn’t mind springing for them. This series was exceptional oy good. They were well scripted and had stellar casts. You’ll see a lot of well known actors. One of my favorite episodes from season one is The Mission. Shame this series didn’t last longer than two seasons.

Good shows but old
Verified purchase
The episodes were pretty good.
I was taken aback that these were filmed a long time ago - like maybe the seventies.
Still cool though. Just pricey for something so old in style and film quality.

Lip Sync Off On This Episode
Verified purchase
This was my favorite episode of the series Amazing Stories but the lip syncing was off to the extent that it was extremely distracting.
