The half-hour program features stories inspired by such noir classics as Double Indemnity (1944) and Pulp Fiction (1994) and classic thriller TV series like Twilight Zone (1959). In each of stand-alone episode, women find extraordinary ways of coping with their problems, channeling their survival instincts and bringing out their inner guile.

I don't know what all the hub-bub is about with such extreme negative or positive views of this show, because unlike the paid hacks shilling for or railing against it, I watched and enjoyed most of the episodes.
I liked: Behind Locked Doors, Something Like Murder, Speed Date, Girls Gone Dead, Help Me Rhonda, Clinic and Visions I. Didn't like the other so much.
I see what they are trying to do with the whole sexy Twilight Zone/Tales from the Crypt sorta thingy and just like those series (which I love) not all of their episodes are great either. It would be great if they had more stars, but I imagine the amount of sex that is in the episodes probably makes that difficult.
I give them credit for trying to elevate the genre with slick photography, cool music and non-pornstar girls (if we compare apples to apples) than to be mired down in the pure sleaze of Coed Confidential, Busty Cops or worse, Chemistry.
