Trivia

During the scene in which the soldiers were shown pornographic movies in the lab, the clip of the Japanese women was taken from 'Imprint', the 13th episode of the first season. Since it was decided that 'Imprint' was too graphic for television so was not aired, this was the first time it was seen in the US before being released on DVD. See more »

Goofs

The photos of the girl murdered in Jacksonville, FL. are titled "Duval County Sheriff's Department". While Jacksonville is located in Duval County, the city and county governments are consolidated. The photos should read "Jacksonville Sheriff's Office". See more »

Wryyyyyy?
13 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm conflicted about this MOH. On one hand, its original source material was clearly supposed to deal with gender relations and the fears of a sex which ultimately always has to wonder (maybe not so deep down inside) whether that nice, well-mannered fellow buying them a drink might be an axe murderer. On the other, we have gratuitous sex scenes and a nice long look at a titty bar, ostensibly because it's a murder scene. So clearly there's a conflict of interest here.

Ultimately, it's the idiocy of all the characters that really ruined it for me. The wife is a blubbering mess who can't control her bratty daughter, the bratty daughter is obviously pumped so full of faux Spice Girls feminism she thinks that shaking her ass in front of potentially murderous construction workers is a good idea, and the husband ultimately refuses to take a shot that could protect him from the screaming crazies (a shot I'm assuming is some form of chemical castration) because "I'd know if I had psychotic symptoms... right?" Basically, the women are mostly portrayed as screaming hysterics, and men as crazed religious freaks. The only redeeming character is Elliot Gould as Barney, a kindly gay man and the only purveyor of sanity in crazy town -- and he doesn't even have that big a role. Basically, this is like an episode of The Outer Limits -- ignore the fact that all the characters are incompetent idiots, and you might be able to enjoy the underlying idea.
