‘ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK’ TRAILER: NICKELODEON REVIVES A CHILDHOOD CLASSIC

I think I am just going to stick with the original five seasons.  I mean, I couldn't even tolerate the revival they did in 1999-2000, so there is just no way this will do it for me.

ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK to me is about young, hungry directors shooting on video tape, in Canada, with obscenely low budgets transcended by the sheer infectious energy of people too wonderfully naive to know better.  It's kind of special.  You can make GOOSEBUMPS EXCEPT SLEEKER, but the spirit of this show, which was crucially spawned by a young network throwing stuff at the wall and not yet concerned about calculatedly hitting specific demographics, simply cannot be recaptured in the way you could recapture ROCKO and ZIM thanks to their being animated shows.
