Quotes

Vince Elsing: Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night thinking something is in your house? You know, heard a noise you couldn't quite make out? So you get up, turn the whole damn place upside-down, 'cause you gotta make sure that your little world is still safe and sound, still just the way you left it? That ever happen to you, Mr. Barnes?
Derek Barnes: Yes.

Great While It Lasted
12 May 2001 | by Thor2000See all my reviews

Have you noticed the annoying trend nowadays on television ? It's when a show debuts, becomes an instant hit and the idiot television heads cancel it ! What is this ? Freaky Links was a great show ! It wasn't "Kolchak" or "Friday The 13th" scary, but it did fill in the void left behind on Friday nights by so many other great shows unjustly cancelled in spite of viewer success. The paranormal investigators behaved and acted like real amateur ghost hunters going after strange stories, but I do have to admit that some of the episodes were below the par of the pilot. It also tried to copy "The X Files" with Dennis Christopher as the shady guy behind the scenes; he was so unnecessary. If anything, it could have been more successful as a cross between "Kolchak" and "Scooby Doo" minus the dog of course and more scenes in creepy out of the way places at night, but I guess we'll never know how big it could have been unless the characters come back in a feature length movie.
