This series was incredible. I was hooked the first episode I saw. I worked at Medieval Times when the series was going on and after work about 12 of us would rush to our nearest friends house crowd around the tv and watch the hour long show every week. (This was before anyone had Tivo) It was so funny because only this show was able to put 12 loud people into a room and not a single word would be said. If someones phone would ring they would get up and leave the room before answering it. There was only 2 seasons which was a bummer but it is soooo worth seeing. The time period is set during the great depression in the time of the bearded lady and the simese twins. It is about good versus evil. I love having the series. I am always trying to get people to watch it so we can talk about how great it is.
