A great start
11 June 2006 | by VampenguinSee all my reviews

I bought the Season 1 boxset today, and it was essentially a blind-buy. When the show was on the air I was somewhere between too young and not interested, so I only watched it once or twice. Now that I'm into horror and everything, I've been wanting to check this out, and the new, cheaper boxset was too good to pass up!

Suffice to say, it was $30 well spent, based solely on the pilot. I highly enjoyed it, the characters are great, the story was creepy, the actors were very good....I loved it all-around and am looking forward to watching more in the near future. A great start to what I am sure is a great series.
