Summary of Season 1 (1985) - 4 discs

Steven Spielberg created and produced this 1980s anthology series that picked up where "The Twilight Zone" left off. Each self-contained story stretched the boundaries of the believable, but Spielberg's deft touch (he directed some episodes as well) ensured that they never broke. Highlights from the first season include guest appearances by Kevin Costner, Keifer Sutherland, Gregory Hines, Anthony LaPaglia and many other well-known stars.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Amazing Stories is a fantastic anthology series of sci-fi, horror, and curiosity tales. Each episode starts a new story with wide-ranging concepts like ghost trains, serial murders, time travel, and space adventures, and content that varies accordingly. This makes the show's appropriateness for kids difficult to predict, but it's safe to assume there's usually some creepiness factor, a few scares, and the possibility of some violence. The complex stories are more highbrow than action-packed, so it's better suited for tweens and up than a younger crowd.

Sexual Content

Physical closeness between adults doesn't go farther than kissing.


The content changes with each story, making the violence quotient difficult to predict. Some episodes are spine-tinglers along the lines of ghost stories; others feature scenes of war, murder (a man is stangled by an unseen assailant, for instance), and the like. Weapons are used when they relate to the plot. Zombies, phantoms, and other supernatural beings play roles as well.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

Often the stories have positive underlying messages or show the characters performing good deeds. Characters' bad behavior usually has a consequence.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some characters drink, smoke, and are seen taking prescription drugs, but it's rarely excessive.
