What little I remember was scary
23 June 2003 | by (Winston-Salem, NC) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing the pilot of this short-lived series as a 13-year old and thinking it was the scariest thing I'd ever seen made-for-tv. Later I saw one of the other 7 episodes or so on the Sci-fi channel, and was entertained by the macabre and sinister tone of it. Granted, my tastes in films and television have markedly changed since then, so who knows how I'd view it now. It's difficult to find though and, for some reason,was a complete flop with the general public.

My guess is that the storylines of each episode (involving supernatural evil) were much better than the storyline of the whole series - that being a male human cop teaming with an alien cop in beautiful female human form. I guess this angle didn't grasp TV's audience, and therefore overshadowed some good sci-fi/horror entertainment.
