Derek Barnes: It's times like this that you crave the strange. It helps make the world make more sense. It makes the crazy normal, and the unreal real. Because, the unthinkable, without it...all you've got left is reality.

Network Interference
5 February 2004 | by (London, Ontario) – See all my reviews

This show greatly suffered from network interference. The creators originally planned for their show "Fearsum" to be scary but with a dark sense of humour. The network decided that they would rather call the show "Freaky Links" and make it lighter in tone. What resulted was a very uneven program which was very good when the creators stuck to dark humour, but became cheesy, self-parody whenever they gave in to the network's demands. Even before the pilot aired, some of the creators began publically distancing themselves from the results. That's the unfortunate thing about TV: artists have to bow to the demands of those who finance the programs, and those who finance the programs usually don't know a single thing about good art. Without such interference, Freaky Links could have become an excellent replacement for the X-Files which, at that time, had largely worn out its welcome with its increasing emphasis upon "mythology" episodes filled with plots going absolutely nowhere.
