Episode 6: The Tale of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice and The Tale of Jake and the Leprechaun (27 min)

Gather around The Campfire this week to hear reviews on episodes 9 and 10 of “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” The Tale of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice (Season 1, Episode 9: Original Air Date: October 10th, 1992) and The Tale of Jake and the Leprechaun (Season 1, Episode 10 Original Air Date: October 17, 1992).

In The Tale of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Dean, a troubled student, find his place place in the school as the successor of Goth and awakens an ancient secret hidden in the school.

Richard and Nik take crafting to a new level as they dissect the shoddy work of a snake staff that beckons spirits from the beyond.

In The Tale of Jake and the Leprechaun, Jake, an inspiring young actor, is in a play where, during rehearsals, he slowly starts to change. Stage fright is the least of this boy’s troubles, as opening night promises to be a real killer!

Remember how we said we would talk about fairies?  This is it!  Also, we get really specific about tea… go figure.

Join us on an episode that deals with pretty boys gone bad and short Irish people — and the stereotypes that follow them!
