Are You Afraid Of The Dark? ruined a large portion of my good underwear. For some reason as a kid, this show freaked me out. Some frightening things went down when the “Midnight Society” gathered to tell their stories. Yes I was a big-time scaredy-cat growing up (shades of Chuckie Finster, minus the gingerness) but I was usually scared shitless by the shenanigans on this show.
