I had almost forgotten about this television series until a close friend of mine somehow obtained some bootlegs DVD copies for me, they were probably taken from the USA Network’s airings. In those murky halls of my brain from my youth, I’ve always remembered James Coburns’s rather odd opening dialogue for the series and one episode in particular entitled Siege of 31 August, where Ronny Cox plays a farmer who is haunted by his actions during the war when his son’s army toys suddenly come to life.
Darkroom doesn’t exactly hold up to what I remembered from my youth, it certainly feels like it was trying for a Night Gallery type of show but I’ve found almost all of the episodes on YouTube for those that want to check it out. Make sure to turn you speakers down though before watching the intro below.
