Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night thinking something is in your house? You know, heard a noise you couldn't quite make out? So you get up, turn the whole damn place upside-down, 'cause you gotta make sure that your little world is still safe and sound, still just the way you left it? That ever happen to you, Mr. Barnes?
Well, now suppose that all those times you thought you heard a footstep, or flash of something out of the corner of your eye, you really did.

Not a bad first episode--in the vein of The X-Files and Millennium. I like that. Not as witty as Buffy and not as heavyweight as The X-Files (yet), but the premise and its principle characters show promise.
The premise is that a group of twenty-somethings maintains a web site that features their investigations of weird occurrences. There is a wealth of such material to exploit, so the writers should never run out of plot ideas. This time around, there were quasi Blair Witch scenes which were not all that well integrated, but I hope the producers keep trying to head in that direction, so long as they don't simply become imitative. Overall, the plot was still a bit ahead of the execution.
The cast is very appealing. The lead guy (Ethan Embry) has a believable face, albeit not all of his acting seems to have caught up with his face. I think he will settle into it, though, and will become believable through and through.
With all the elements it has going for it, FreakyLinks has good potential for growth. I plan to continue watching it, and I hope it earns its keep.
