Just bought the DVD's after having Amazing Stories on Video when I was much younger. I'm glad to say that they havn't lost any of the charm, tension, excitement, and awe that I had for this series when I was five! 'The Mission' in particular is one of my favourites, starring Kevin Costner, although the actor playing the guy stuck in the turret really steals the show! Ghost Train is another favourite, and is a brilliant story for kids aged 3 - 70.
In conclusion Steven Spielberg has produced an amazing series, and I can't think of any other series that has come since that has such well made, edge of the seat, stories. One of the best TV series ever made. Get it watched!
