very intriguing
13 December 2002 | by nismohalosSee all my reviews

very good new show. kept me on the edge of my seat the whole hour, wanting to find out what happens next. It contains a lot of interesting facts which seem real, and you actually learn new things every time you watch this show. I highly recommend this show to anyone who likes the mystery/suspense/action genre.
