For 90s kids… Are You Afraid of the Dark

If you grew up in the 90s, chances are you’ve been terrified of the opening sequence to Are You Afraid of the Dark. Tons of full episodes are available on YouTube, but start with this one about a creepy clown, preferably right before bed.


For bite-sized sci-fi… The Twilight Zone

A treasure trove of brilliant sci-fi stories. Start with Eye of the Beholder for a lesson in the perception of beauty.

A M - Twilight Zone

Re-live it… Love/Hate

The entire first season, in one video.

The Movie man

For a laugh… Summer Heights High

Chris Lilley’s Australian mockumentary of high-school life is gas. Maybe one to avoid on public transport, you giggling weirdo.


Relive the awkward teen phase… Freaks and Geeks

Seth Rogen and James Franco starred in this brilliant Judd Apatow produced comedy before they were famous. It was cancelled way before its time, but at least we have the one and only season to enjoy on YouTube in all its glory.
