Like poking a dead body with a stick.
21 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw an advertisement/ commercial for this show the other day, and checked it out on my DVR today.

I expected there to be several cases of inner-body parasites. In that respect, the show delivered. My problem was that they seemed to make too big of a deal about the cases. So much so, that only 2-3 cases fit into an episode that has a running time of 60 min.

In my opinion I think the series does not seem to stress the science, or the way that the parasites work, which is what I was fascinated with.

Though it may sound cold, I didn't watch the show so I could see dramatizations of what the family was doing at the time, or how they felt.

If you are into Drama, with a gruesome touch, and you don't mind waiting for it, then this show is for you.

For me, I didn't like how it wraps you up in a Documentary Drama, then we are introduced to the gross part. I would have liked to see one or the other.

Actually, just the one.
