Perfection Valley, Nevada is a quaint little town. The inhabitants live peaceful, tranquil lives. Most of the time. Perfection is home to the Graboid, El Blanco. El Blanco is a 30-foot worm creature who hunts prey by sound. It is an endangered species, so as long as El Blanco is around, Perfection can't be bulldozed by any greedy developers. To protect their home, the people of Perfection must co-exist with El Blanco, dealing with him when necessary as well as other strange situations that come their way. Written by

Tyler refers to the shriekers as 'Jurassic Park wannabe bastards!' Tippett Studios not only created the CGI effects for the shriekers in Tremors II: Aftershocks but also worked on Jurassic Park in 1993. See more »

Well, when I first heard that Tremors was going to become a weekly TV series, my first reaction was WTF? I loved the original movies and still do this day, but to have Burt Gummer go up against Tremors week after week would seem pretty redundant. Until I saw the series.
The best thing about the show is that they do not focus as much on Graboids or Shriekers or Asslbasters that much at all, but rather take an X-Files approach to the series. It doesn't take itself seriously at all, and could be considered the pick-up of the humur that was lacking in many X-Files episodes. Seeing it as a continuation of the events from the last movie makes sense, as most movie-to-TV series concepts don't have the same relish as the movies (Ferris Bueller? Clerks? Clueless?), but this could really turn that feeling around greatly. I hope SciFi realizes what they have and keep it for three or four seasons.
