  1. The best worst series on TV. [30 Sep 2005, p.89]
  2. It's a show so determined to shock that it cares more about that than about such things as compelling lead characters, believable situations or inventively solved mysteries.
  3. With its soundtrack full of metal and techno and its killers packing imported deadly spiders and home surgery kits, it aims for a Gothic moodiness not unrelated to the season's scary-monster shows.
  4. 25
    The season's worst show.
  5. A sadistic series that, underneath its ghastly veneer, is just a dull, unoriginal crime drama.
