Zoot suits are seldom cooler than on a living dead guy!
I dug this TV flick for several reasons. First of all, the design sense is wonderful, so much eclectic retro-Victorian meets 1920's fashion meets 1950's hot rods, my gosh, what isn't to like about this much eye candy? The story is simple yet engaging. The performances are strong enough. The editing technique is playful, sometimes distracting but often surprisingly effective (like the window in window frames and transitions allowing multiple perspectives). The humor is tight and often felt surrealist the way LEXX often does. Over all this felt like a pilot, a light hearted romp that would have played well back to back with the more hard nosed BRIMSTONE. Groovy stuff though, hep cats.
