Interesting and nearly overcomes its low budget.
Ridiculously underrated. Amazing series!
Coming into this show I was fascinated by the concept. A couple of episodes in, the lackluster acting still did not deter me from continuing on. After all, the episodes are fairly short. Now that I’m done watching all the episodes I just feel a complete unresolved waste of my time. Great concept, poor execution.
it won't play any episodes
Not a bad take on things. Was better than I expected but the uneven episodes made it a bit wonky.
