Battling a life depression, Earl Bassett is offered a job as a mercenary to help a Mexican oil company with a Graboid epidemic that's killing more people each day. However, the humans aren't the only ones with a new battle plan..
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 thirty-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

The series is kind of wacky. Not that the first three movies were exactly classic cinema like Casablanca, Citizen Kane, or masterpiece thriller like Psycho! But that's the attraction. I thought the strength of the production is in it's concept. This is a campy, quaint, low-budget show...it will never be a Terminator 2 type sci fi effects extravaganza, it sure ain't a high concept stylish disaster love epic like Titanic, It is just plain cute, fun light romp.
I like the series. I can relate to the characters, they are human and all have good stories behind them. They are more human, with human foibles and not the plastic perfection cardboard you see coming from Hollyweird these days. The drama is light, which is a nice change in the time of our illegal invasion...err war of "freedom". I like Burt's eccentricity, I wish he'd run for president. Jodi... mmmmm yummy! She's very natural in her role. (and cute, not plastic) Nancy's character makes a nice contrast to Burt Gummer's... But the Rosa chick was just tryin' too hard to be the hottie! Turn off! What happened to Nancy's daughter? I saw Nancy and her daughter in the Tremors movie and watched them grow...watched them beat graboid after shriekers...Now the team is broken up!! Well, I guess some of the living had to move.
Overall I enjoyed the TV Tremors, although the episode with the mutating green cloud was a little too far away from the original concept. It was distracting ...and the V8 powered garage vac ...what the heck was that? Did BA Barrakus and the A-Team move to Perfection after they retired from the Los Angeles Underground? It was a little like Jesse James and Monster Garage wrapped up in Mguyver, covered with Tim Allen and Home Improvement! Overall, not bad for a start. There's nothing really to hate on this series!
Good Luck Tremors team!
