Great Overlooked Show
5 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the (then) fledgling UPN network's early shows. Sadly it was greatly overlooked by the viewing public, and was quickly canceled. The show was basically The Twilight Zone set under the glitzy glamour of Las Vegas. It was an anthology show with several mini-stories per episode. As an anthology, each episode featured a different cast of characters, although a few supporting characters do make regular appearances. It was hosted by The Watcher, (rapper Sir Mix-A-Lot) in a role similar to Rod Serling on TZ. It was quite a kick to see the group, Cheap Trick guest star in one episode as a fictional has-been rock group called Pandemonium. The strange, quirky little stories were for the most part well written. The production value was also very good. But the real star of the show was the city of Las Vegas

  • so beautiful, glitzy, and surreal, but beneath the neon glare was a


shadowy underside.
