I hope this isn't a rip off of American Gothic. The promos sure make this look good. We'll see. Anyone heard anything? i've heard no buzz.
Look! Even Steve is throwing chocolate snowballs . . . oh . . .

I saw a clip for this too, looks promising. I'll probably give it a shot.

This show blows. It's trying way too hard to be Twin Peaks. The script is horrendous - the dialogue is just painful to watch. The contrast between the overly happy townsfolk and the ghastly murders just doesn't work.

was this on last night? i'm so sorry i missed it... NOT.
after herc's bad review... i didn't change my mind because herc's reviews are useless. but after reading all the other bad reviews he linked to, i decided it was worth passing up.

Yeah, I don't think it's worth your time Bax. I read Herc's review and I agree with his comparisons to Desperate Housewives and the show's failed attempts to mimic Twin Peaks. It's also a pity Sam Neill is in this - such a waste of his talent.
