Another horror anthology series that didn't last
I really didn't hope for much from this show, because these kind of shows usually don't work that well, since about the time that Rod Serling died. I started with the episode that Bill Pullman acted in/directed, and found it a pleasant surprise. When they had Joe Dante directing, I really got interested, but I think it was only airing for about a month and a half. Henry Rollins holds a special place in my heart, (I saw a LOT of Black Flag shows!), but he was a rather poor Rod Serling substitute. I guess we file this one next to a whole lot of similarly themed shows that really didn't fly, from "Darkroom" on down the line. I hope that the powers that be will keep trying for this sort of show, although I have to say that most of the "Twilight Zone" revival attempts have been pretty bad.
