  • The lost art of suspense...

    8.5
    Darkroom was a very short-lived suspense series from Universal TV that was hosted by James Coburn and ran on ABC.



    The show was an anthology series, which by that time was a dying genre featuring tales of a supernatural nature. Sort of like a latter-day Night Gallery.



    It was a shame that this show had failed to create a sizable audience since it was unfortunately scheduled against CBS's brainrot, The Dukes Of Hazzard.



    Nevertheless, this was a decent show, almost as good as the syndicated Tales From The Darkside.



    I guess there's just no accounting for taste when it comes to TV suspense, but i have to admit that the also short-lived Fox Network series Night Visions comes close.moreless
  • There is only 1 episode I remember and it was doozy!

    7.5
    Decent stories alot like Tales From The Crypt that would come later.



    The best episode was where this couple (Claude Akins and June Lockhart) takes in an old homeless guy and proceeds to feed and clothe him and make him feel at home. Everything seems great! Turns out they want him to replace their dead uncle, so they can continue to collect his railroad disability payments as he was injured years ago. Seems like a good deal until they explain to him the nature of the railroad accident. It turns out their uncle lost both legs in the accident and they have to make sure the new Uncle matches the old one! The show ends with Claude Akins firing up a circular saw and the homeless guy screaming. BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!moreless

    I would love to find somewhere to purchase the Darkroom series or at the very least the episode about the toy soilders: Siege of 3...
