Review:

With just over 38 days until Halloween, it is no surprise that studios will be releasing gobs of horror films and Halloween themed DVDs this time of year. Last week, Mill Creek Entertainment released the DVD, titled TV Guide Spotlight: TV's Spookiest Halloween Episodes. The single-disc DVD features 14 episodes from  13 classic television shows.

The episodes are:

Bewitched (Season 4 - Episode 8) - Safe and Sane Halloween
I Dream of Jeannie (Season 3 - Episode 21) - My Master, the Ghost Breaker
The Jeffersons (Season 6 - Episode 4) - Now You See It, Now You Don't Part 1 & 2
Square Pegs (Season 1- Episode 5) - Halloween XII
The Facts of Life (Season 5 - Episode 6) - Halloween
The Cosby Show (Season 2 - Episode 6) - Halloween
Roseanne (Season 2 - Episode 7) - Boo!
Mad About You (Season 2 - Episode 6) - An Unplanned Child
Married With Children (Season 8 - Episode 7) - Take My Wife, Please
NewsRadio (Season 3 - Episode 7) - Halloween
Ned And Stacey (Season 1 - Episode 8) - Halloween Story
3rd Rock From The Sun (Season 3 - Episode 5) - Scaredy Dick
That '70s Show (Season 2 - Episode 5) - Halloween

It is nice to see a Halloween themed DVD being released featuring a variety of television series from the '60s to the '00s. This a great way to introduce the younger generation to these timeless sitcoms. While most of the shows are still being aired in reruns today, a few them, like NewsRadio, Ned and Stacey and Square Pegs, are hard to find. Ned and Stacey only lasted for two seasons in the late '90s, but I have fond memories of watching it, so I had a blast watching the Halloween Story episode. Actually, I enjoyed watching all the episodes on the DVD and I highly recommend it to others.
