Ok, a sort of spin-off from the Nick thread:

As an older kid/early teenager, I LOVED the show - "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"

It used to scare the heck out of me! But I liked that in a twisted sort of way :D

Anyone else feel the same way? :)

I think that was the first television show i ever got addicted too. I had two younger siblings I use to tell them to "get ready for the show", as if we were going to watch a film or something. It made me anxious before during and after in a good sort of way. I can still picture some of the episodes in my head...

OMG this is one of my favourite TV shows from the 90's, when Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network were the best!! My brother has every episode on DVD :D
I actually don't remember much, except when they put the fire out at the end. Very, very good times.... (before I was aware of my Asperger's)

There were some episodes I liked a lot. Like "Phone Police" and "Pinball Wizard". And I always liked the music in the end credits, haha.

I remember this tv show along with many others from Nickelodeon's early years.Actually I'm not sure if anyone remembers The Third Eyes series, from the 1980's as it was part of Nick's programming line back in those days?
Anyways thanks for the post... :) :salut:

I was convinced from the beginning that M. Night Shyamalan actually ripped off the idea for The Sixth Sense from my favorite episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark. Years later, he admitted this himself!

Season 3, Episode 36 "The Tale of the Dream Girl" Air Date: December 30, 1992
A teen named Johnny (Scott Hope in Buffy the Vampire Slayer) discovers a ring and after putting it on, begins seeing a girl that he falls in love with. He soon learns though she died in a car accident. This episode was cited by M. Night Shyamalan as the inspiration for The Sixth Sense due to its twist ending.
