They need to make this show available
22 July 2012 | by GregoryGreerSee all my reviews

This was an awesome show. It had well written thought provoking stories. There was a catchy soundtrack that ran through the show. Sir Mix-a-lot was the narrator and the show had a somewhat unique feel. I think the most comparable show to "The Watchers" was "Alfred Hitchcock Presents", but this show was still quite different. The show had an interesting format in that it would bounce between various stories in one episode. It would start by telling the first part of one story, then go on to tell part of another story, then come back again to tell the next part of the first story and so on. In between parts, Sir Mix-a-lot would give commentary on the various characters and their ethics or lack of. This is a must see for anybody that likes thought provoking TV shows with social commentary.
