Storyline

This half-hour anthology show usually featured a woman in hardship, musing about might-have-beens, or fighting for her life, such as a woman being visited by the ghost of the child she never had, a housewife discovering her own courage while battling a gang of thugs, a woman being visited by the romance novel hero in her head, or playing dangerous games of theft and sex with her own husband. In the third season, the format became more open-ended and generally Twilight-Zonish, such as the man who thinks he might be a werewolf. Written by Kathy Li

Lifetime's horror and suspense anthology...
18 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...which would seem like an oxymoron, when we consider the reputation of the Lifetime cable station (unless each story involves the horror of a cheating husband or the suspense of a stalking ex-boyfriend), but I remember it being rather well-done (if rather obviously on a shoestring), particularly an episode which adapted a short story by the well-regarded horror and science-fiction writer Lisa Tuttle...the first a/v adaptation of her work with which I'm familiar. I would like an opportunity to review these episodes again, but suspect something like the Museum of Television and Radio will be the only hope, since not only the various fantastic-drama cable and satellite stations but everyone else seems to have forgotten about the series.
