So, I've been watching a lot of Are You Afraid of the Dark? recently (because 1. it was/is my absolute favorite show, and 2. thanks to the internet, I can) and I'm pleased to report that most episodes (from the original run, I still dislike the two reboot seasons) hold up very well. The 90's fashion, not so much, but it does make me very nostalgic.
I've seen things like a very fine motorcycle shaped phone, a rainbow of scrunchies and floppy boys' haircuts, and Danny Cooksey wearing not one, but two layers of flannel:At least he doesn't have his Salute Your Shorts mullet?
The other thing I've realized is that the 'strange' way a lot of the characters pronounce words, which I noticed but could never quite put my finger on as a kid, is due to the fact that 95% of the actors on the show are Canadian.
My favorite episode remains Watchers Woods, and not just because Jewel Staite is in it. Anyone else out there a fan? Or remember any episodes that particularly scared you? Have any favorite or stories you'd like to share? I once watched the one where a witch turns girls into wolves (not particularly scary to me, even at the time) with a friend in middle school who got so scared she had to go home. Oops. (The episode is 'The Tale of the Mystical Mirror', in case you're wondering, featuring Laura Bertram
