Quotes

[at the beginning of segment "The House on Baker Street"]
Himself - Host: The story of young lovers defying the wishes of their parents is as old as Romeo and Juliet and as new as today. The next story involves an ill-fated love-revenge and things that go bump in the night. And as you'll see at the conclusion of our story, Romeo and Juliet were never like this. Just ask the neighbors.

above-average show
29 May 2000 | by (Monterey, CA) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite shows on television. The concept is excellent. The production has a similar feeling to "X-files" and "Unsolved Mysteries", but is also in the tradition of "Ripley's Believe It or Not", "Twilight Zone", and other old shows that delved into the weird and wonderful.

I also enjoy guessing whether the stories are fact or fiction. The show invites the viewer to participate and give their belief system a workout.
