User Reviews

This show is why DVD was invented! Why no release yet?
12 October 2005 | by (South Korea) – See all my reviews

This show was one of the many casualties Fox incurred when they shifted X-FILES to Sundays and tried to fill it's old Friday slot with more quirky shows. This show was great but Fox forgot that X-Files took time to build an audience; they canceled it after less than 10 airings, I believe. DB Sweeney and Francis Fisher were very appealing, but the real star was THE WRITING! Clever plots, centering on luck and coincidence, and good dialog.

I guess Fox didn't think it was a REAL network until they started killing potential late-breakout hits with early cancellation decisions... the one moronic TRUE indicator of a network exec at work!
