TV with real scripts
10 December 2013 | by (sweden) – See all my reviews

I'm amazed at the convoluted scripts for these 45 minutes plus shows. This series, as far as I have seen it (10 films, the Hitchcock-directed by no means being the best of them), is better than Twilight-Zone, Hitchcock Presents, Hitchcock Hour and all other TV-series. I own a DVD with 15 films (haven't seen all of them yet) in real bad quality but that doesn't stop me from enjoying them. That this series isn't on the market smells Conspiracy real bad. Many films are out there but the best ones are Always missing, kind of. What makes this shows so unique is that it looks true much more than any other series I'v seen and truth is something very unattractive in America North.
