predictable, but good production values, etc.
4 October 2006 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

"The Hunger" had good hosts (Stamp and Bowie), good writers and actors, strong cinematography set design and lighting (and nudity). On the other hand, the stories could be rather predictable; whether that's a flaw of the original stories or if the problem was in their adaptation, I don't know.

York Entertainment has put many if not all of the episodes out on videotape and DVD. I don't believe there's a box set of them all, unfortunately. They put them out in collections of four to a tape/disc. This one appears in one titled "The Hunger Presents Wetwork" with the tagline "Soak It Up." Other episodes on here are The Other Woman, Triangle In Steel, and The Falling Man. The episodes aren't in their original broadcast order. It's possible the host's introductions are mismatched, but I don't know.

This episode is certainly one of the more predictable ones. A number of people on the verge of a breakthrough in their careers destroy themselves when a woman named Helene leaves them. A reporter discovers the story and thinks it could be really big... you probably know where that's headed, right? Harlan Ellison wrote the story this was based on, but he's credited under his pseudonym that indicates he wasn't happy with the adaptation.
