  • A mobster kidnaps a vantriloquist so he can have a one man show, literally.

    This is a classic episode, especially coming out of the fourth season. "No Strings" actually has some creepy moments, mainly the scenes where the dead man is strug up like a dummy and is made to dance. It just looks really creepy. The end of the episode was silly, and not really to my liking. Lets just say, that the dead man does get his revenge. Overall, this is one of the better episodes of the series and I would recommend seeing it when you can. It isn't scary, but it does have a pretty good chill factor on some scenes
  • A mafia member is putting on show with a special guest but the guest wasn't really supposed to be there.

    I remember this episode from when I was a kid. It was a very spooky one indeed. I love it because it's got violence and a puppet and it's not exactly what you would expect to happen. My favorite line from the show that I remember when I was a kid is when they're stringing up the dead man to be a puppet and he says he can't get the hooks the hold. He tells him to use the bullet holes, that's what there there for.
