Season 2 Episode 10: Do You Know Where Your Kids are near the end, when Patti is closing the double doors, a cameraman's shadow is visible on the wall when the shot pulls back.
Edit Share+ Judging by Patty's toys in Bloodline, one would assume that the episode takes place in the '80s - but posters of Jon Bon Jovi are prominently featured in this episode, leading to some reasonable doubt about the time-line (since this is supposed to be more than a decade later).

I remember being a kid and seeing commercials for this show but, since it was on late at night, I never had the pleasure of watching it. Chiller TV ran marathons of this 7 or 8 years ago and, being the low budget, schlock loving individual that I am, came to enjoy this series greatly.
Season one shines far brighter than season two with episodes such as "It's A Miserable Life", "Sister's Keeper", "Do Dreams Bleed" and "Identity Crisis" standing out amongst the pack. Almost all of the episodes are cheesy as all get-out but still just kind of have that weird 80's vibe compounded by random and bizarre stories that make them enjoyable nonetheless.
I'd love to see this series get a full release on video. It's a classic among schlock mongers and utilizes standard 80's stereotypes that would likely be considered weird by those born long after the series originally aired.
