As soon as they announced John Waters was presenting a weekly mystery, I had it marked on the calendar. There is only one thing wrong with it - it should be an hour long rather than half an hour. With the dearth of good original programming to choose from, it shines bright on this household's weekly schedule. John's cynical introductions and commentary are appropriately ghoulish and his little voice over's during the show remind one of a sort of disembodied death angel commenting on the proceedings. Fun stuff! The material is fun, and so far the characters have been equally dis-likable so one doesn't feel sorry when one of them gets whacked and the other one gets punished...in fact we look forward to it. I hope John will appear in some of the episodes, like Boris Karloff used to do on his show, Boris Karloff Presents Thriller. Destined to be a classic, this show is totally entertaining and one of the few things I really look forward to each week. 10 out of 10!
