Laughable, but I kept watching
29 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

Saw this on TV last night as one long movie (had no idea it was originally 4 minis, no wonder it draaaagged).

Original, I suppose, but that's because it's a ridiculous plot. But it was sort of interesting anyway, though the "game" was a bit of a joke. Actually it was a lot of a joke.

An anti-climactic ending (well, it was a "twist" of sorts) left me feeling kinda annoyed at having sat through 4 hours of TV-quality acting, but I guess it could have been worse.

Fairly standard British murder mystery drama in the end... but that's not necessarily a bad thing. If you have a lot of spare time and you happen to catch this it's a good way to kill a few hours.
