good show
14 March 2002 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

This quasi-Twilight Zone series (but with more emphasis on the fantasy elements) ranks as one of my favorite shows. The episodes were all good, and I especially remember the episodes where a guy finds himself trapped in the bottom of an airplane during a war, and one where a nerd can't seem to get the girl he wants and wishes life could be more like the movies, until he finds himself in a dark one...

All in all, not too bad.
