    Synopsis


    Our old fiend -- er, friend -- The Cryptkeeper is back with 13 more weeks of grisly playlets and howlingly bad jokes and puns as Tales From the Crypt launches its sixth season. Those who orginally watched the series on HBO could not help but notice that the average episode length had been trimmed somewhat: this was done to accommodate the Fox network, who was obliged to include commercials when rerunning Tales From the Crypt as part of their Saturday night schedule. As in previous years, the season opens with a 90-minute special, comprised of three half-hour stories: "Let the Punishment Fit the Crime," with Catherine O'Hara as a greedy attorney who learns the hard way that the law is a stern mistress; "Only Skin Deep," in which a young man makes a fatal choice at a costume party; and "Whirlpool," featuring Rita Rudner as a comic book artist who is trapped in a grisly, never-ending scenario of her own making. Highlights this season include "The Pit," featuring Wayne Newton in a revenge yarn fittingly set in Las Vegas; "In the Groove," wherein a cuckolded disc jockey played by Miguel Ferrer sets up what he thinks is the perfect murder; "Doctor of Horror," starring Hank Azaria in the story of a grim research experiment; and the last episode of the season, "You, Murderer," a Poelike mood piece in which the truth behind a murder is told from the corpse's p.o.v. ~ Hal Erickson

      Good season

      Signification

      The biggest problem I have with this season is that there are very few great episodes. Most are just good. My favorites are "Let the Punishment Fit the Crime" and "You, Murderer." The episode "The Pit" is my least favorite episode of the show (excluding season 7, which I haven't seen yet); it's really bad, and you can see the twist coming halfway through the episode (and it's a really lame twist). The rest of the episodes are good, but this season doesn't quite compare to the first five. Highly recommended.

      I can remember watching these years ago on HBO and this series has a lot of big name guest stars on it. It was good seeing this series again and all the guests stars.
