Storyline

In a neo-noir future, Nightclub hostess and classy femme fatale, Raven, presents various stories that involve some of her guests or even herself. Some of the tales are sleazy, some are violent, some are about love and some are about loneliness, some are darkly humorous and some are bittersweet and tragic, some are gritty cyberpunk thrillers and some are more fantastical and lighthearted, but they are all spicy and original.

This reminded me of heavy metal.
25 February 2000 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I can see why recommendations for spicy city has Heavy Metal included. As I watched some of the episodes of this particularly "Mano's Hands", I felt like I was watching something based on Heavy Metal comics (It wouldn't surprise me if any of the episodes have appeared in comic form in Heavy Metal.) I think the reason it reminded me of Heavy Metal was because of the sort of twisted sci-fi look it had and the fact that there was a sex tone to about every story. Almost every episode had nudity either just because someone was just walking around without a top, or because it was put it to excite people. Granted like Heavy Metal the stories in this where usually twisted. Some having humor other just plain messed up I didn't enjoy this show as much as the Heavy Metal movie, but I still found it a good show to watch if you have nothing better to do at the time it's on.
