Urban Gothic is a really interesting, entertaining show. The tales of 'Urban Gothic' are strange but unique, and are very twisted, dark but usually funny as well. The episodes vary, from raising the dead, to supermarket-owning aliens. The scripts are sometimes a bit silly or dull, but most of it is tongue-in-cheek and well done. The acting is sometimes rusty or wooden, but some people give really good performance, such as Anita Dobsen as Fenella. The stories are really unpredictable though, in the sense that sometimes they are more humorous and bright, instead of dark and gory, but to be honest, this is what is so fun about them; some are really tense and gritty and you can get your teeth into them, and then some are more cheery and spoofish, and you can just sit back and relax and have a laugh, and still be quite scared at the same time. This is such a perfect balance, and makes the show more genuine and unique. Urban Gothic is really worth looking for, and the DVD's are well worth the purchase. You won't be disappointed in this inventive, low budget gem.
