Decent little anthology series with a sci-fi/horror slant
Maybe not startlingly original for most long-time sci-fi/horror fans with shades of Twilight Zone and Outer Limits among others plus maybe a sprinkling of some well known urban legends but the stories are well told and well acted with several taking on elements of our current culture in new ways. As a nice added bonus there are a few faces (and one voice ;) to gladden the heart of any Buffy fans watching. And unusually for this sort of anthology series, the framing story held my interest as well or better than the episodic stuff, particularly as the show went on.
It's clearly made with not a lot of money and I wouldn't be surprised if some of the locations are houses of friends or relatives but there's nothing wrong with that, people like Sam Raimi started on a shoestring too. Not being able to throw money at problems pushes the creators to be inventive and focus on telling their stories well.
All in all, i'd definitely recommend this first season and would certainly watch a second if one gets made.
