F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C show!
14 December 1998 | by gstjamesSee all my reviews

Based of the movies of the same name (and characters) the series took F/X to a whole new level... and a whole new reality. It got you inside "the business", inside the characters' heads, inside their lives. It was a spectacular show.

F/X: The Series was one of the few shows in the past... 10 years or so that I watched religiously. It was a smart blend of action, adventure, intrigue, crime, mystery, romance, and whatever else you want to name to add in.

As I write this, I'm wondering what's the point to it? The show was cancelled after its second season (I can't imagine why?!--unless it had something to do with its impossible to locate and/or watch timeslots). F/X will probably always remain one of my favorite series.
