Awesome, Scary, fascinating. still chills me today. Loved it.
1 April 2009 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

All I remember from this show is the basic storyline. I Remember something like glowing communication "eggs"! that the twins had.

Now! here comes my Scary memories of this show: Although I recall it as being awesome, there was one thing that freaked me out. THE CAR (LOL), Stupid I know, but hey i'm not into cars except for my fascination with the Pontiac ("Original Knight Rider") and Lamborgini's (Mostly the "SL"). ANYWAY... That Black (I think - a 1930 Pontiac Two Door Sedan), ""Corrections welcome"" freaked me out. I was approx. 9 or 10 when I saw this show, (maybe even 8). Shortly after watching this show I moved into a block of flats with a parking bay underneath. Now! in this parking bay there was this "IDENTICAL" Black car which was ALWAYS there. It Never Moved (Day or Night) for +-2Yrs even after I moved again and happened to walk past on my way to school. Now at that age it made no sense whatsoever as cars are meant to move to and from places. I'm sure you see the link.

Well thats it. Would love to see it again and can't wait for the remake that is coming soon.
