I watched the "ghost" episode. It is easily movie quality. It reached out and grabbed me by the throat with terror. The topic was torture, and the way western governments make people disappear then use filthy tricks against anyone who tries to help them. The institutional and faceless nature of the villain creates a creepiness and omniscience reminiscent of The Conversation. You do get to see these creeps eventually and understand their fanatical thinking, easily as sick as the terrorists they claim to be chasing.
The lead characters are put in situations where they have to choose between self preservation and altruistic action. Unlike most movies, you feel the tension in deciding, and believe that perhaps discretion is the better part of valour. This is not about mindless Terminator-style heroics, but about relatively ordinary people swept up in evil events.
