MONSTERS was a series that didn't receive a network broadcast on British terestial television . It debuted on the short lived Galaxy channel on BSB then eventually got broadcast in its entirety on one of the Sky channels . I can't recall ever seeing an episode of the show because catching an episode on The Horror Channel earlier today I do recall the title sequence where a family of Cyclops sit down to watch the television so I must have seen an episode at one point . As it turned out the best thing , sorry , least worse thing about the episode was the title sequence
New York Honey is about a man keeping a bee farm in his apartment and when his landlord finds out puts pressure on him to give him honey . I'm guessing the fact that the show is called MONSTERS that means every week we're treated to a parable on human nature and that it is the human race is monstrous . Fair enough and gets no complaints from me and has been a subject of storytelling ever since man has put pen to paper . The problem with episode isn't how the story is told but the way the cast act . There's realistic acting and there's subtle acting , and there's wooden acting , and there's over the top acting but the acting here is like nothing I have ever seen and I don't mean that in a good way . It is something you might expect in a pantomime except only much worse as the cast over emphasise every line and facial expression . It's painfully distracting and when you've a teleplay where the cast aren't taking serious what hope for the suffering audience ? Suspension of disbelief is one thing but this nonsense is quite another and the only memory I will keep with me from this episode is how terrible it was
