  • This is one of the episodes I remember most from my childhood.

    In my most honest opinion I believe this should have been the first scary story to be told by the kids. " The Tale of the Phantom Cab " was pivotal and this episode, though it had its flaws, was amazing. This is one of the few episodes I actually remembered watching when I was five years old or so. The only reasoning this episode doesn't get above 9.1 is because of some not so amazing acting, and because it was more of a suspense than a thriller. Overall, this is the episode you want to begin with. Forget the stupid tale of the phantom cab. Laughing in the Dark will be the only " pilot " episode you need.
