"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 Face of Helene Bournouw, The Other Woman, and Triangle In Steel. The episodes aren't in their original broadcast order. It's possible the host's introductions are mismatched, but I don't know.
The Falling Man is unfortunately a sort of retread of The Face of Helene Bournouw. A mysterious woman meets someone brilliant who's on the verge of something big. To some extent she's a muse, but she's also a destroyer. The episodes are based on different stories, though. The Falling Muse is definitely the better of the two.
