A Nice Little Series
8 August 2006 | by (Waterford,Michigan) – See all my reviews

I have only seen a few episodes of this series and I like it. I own the story A Voice in th Night and it is truly a suspenseful and scary story with a lot of subtle horror. The stories and the writing I have seen from just a few episodes is crisp and tight in the telling of very good and entertaining stories. Seriously, this needs to be on DVD like another series Bus Stop almost from the same era. As it is, this series stand alone on the strength of just the few stories I have seen. I seriously hope I can find more of this long forgotten and little known gem. If you can get copies or even few them, you will not be disappointed. At least not from the few I have seen.
