    How about MONSTERS? TALES FROM THE CRYPT and TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE?
    Those are what I was going to mention, especially Tales From The Darkside. But Alfred Hitchcock was great too. You can still see the old reruns up her on a couple different channels.
    I don't think anyone mentioned Dark Shadows? Never a fan myself but I loved Nightstalker...my favorite of them all.

    Not all strictly horror, but some stand-out series.

    Kealan I also tend to really dislike Joshua Jackson but I managed to somewhat overcome that to enjoy Fringe. I loved TftC and will echo that Darkside has aged poorly. It's been a while but I remember enjoying Friday the 13th the Series. I also miss Elvira.

    Fringe is one of my current favorites, in spite of JJ.

    Oh, and I am not ashamed to say that I freaking love Supernatural.

    I used to love Fringe, but I stopped watching it for some reason. I can't remember why. I do really like Haven on the Sci-Fi channel. It's a surprisingly good show, as with all the Sci-Fi originals lately. Another good one is Sanctuary.

    I agree Dan. Syfy has stepped it up in regards to original programming. I got really into Haven this year. If anyone hasn't watched a few episodes they are missing out.

    I really loved the Twilight Zone incarnation from the mid-80s. Some of the best TV I've ever seen. "Nightcrawlers", "Gramma", "Her Pilgrim Soul" and "Shatterday" are among my favorites.

    Agreed Terry. Those were terrific episodes. Watched "Gramma" not so long ago and it still holds up.

    I've been curious about HAVEN for quite some time but haven't heard much about it. I think the fact that it was based on THE COLORADO KID put me off it, because as much as I loved that book, the idea of it inspiring a series didn't make much sense to me. But now I may have to track it down and check it out.

    SUPERNATURAL is another one I couldn't get into. I think the Calvin Klein-ish brotherly duo put me off it.

    I would say that it's sooo loosely based on The Colorado Kid, that you could say that it really isn't based on that at all. It is chock full of King refrences, so for people who are really into King's work it can be a fun time just trying to pick them all out.

    I never watched the series, but I saw an epidode of Night Gallery: "Professor __________'s Last Lecture" I think it was titled, in which a professor at Miskatonic University was explaining the Cthulhu mythology to his comparative religion class. All the while, he's slowly turning into Nylarthotep. By the end of the lecture, all of the students are ready for the sanitarium: wide-eyed, drooling, hair disshevelled. Except for a mousy, bespectacled geek named "Howard" who is sitting in the back of the classroom furiously scibbling notes. I laughed myself into a headache over that. Wasn't creepy or scary, but I loved it!

    I have to agree with Haven, excellent series that I forgot to mention (knew I was forgetting at least 1 show)

    One of my earliest TV memories is an episode of Night Gallery. It was before I ever started school, so it was definitely a world shaping memory.

    I watched the entire series of Night Gallery a few years back. It was my first exposure to it, and I loved it. Serling was the man.

    I have a series on DVD called "Kindred: the Embraced" based on the game Vampire: The Eternal Struggle. It wasn't bad, but what i remember about it was thinking that the character (I belive a Tremere) who was the consort of whoever currently bore the title of Prince was one magnificent bitch. I haven't watched it in years, but I remember it being pretty good.

    I remember when that was on, but I never watched it. I always thought it was an offshoot of the (dreadful) horror movie THE KINDRED. Shows what I know.

    Ah yes, I loved that when it was on, but as my memory serves, it sort of stuttered to a very unsatisfying end when it was cancelled?

    I suppose Twin Peaks should be on my list then. Hooked from the get go, gutted when that was cancelled.

    Carnivalle was something very enjoyable as well, but again, cancellation stopped it from fulfulling its potential I'd say.

    I loved Twin Peaks. I was really looking forward to a third season with Agent Cooper as the new Bob. Oh well, the series started to loose steam when Lynch released control anyway. I've got the series on DVD and have watched it entirely twice. Sometimes, I'll go out at night looking for a piece of cherry pie and a damn fine cup of coffee....
