    Bermuda Tentacles....sigh, Syfy just can't quit can they? It's an addiction, please seek out a 12 step program.

    Haven't seen any threads on Metal Hurlant...i like the idea of a twilight Zone/Outer Limts type of series...but despite some great actors this is NOT grabbing me...the stories seem to short, and not getting into the characters or anything.

    ^ Yeah, it's a real poor man's Outer Limits and doesn't seem to have the budget and/or talent to capitalize on its pulp namesake. Every episode seems to have the same awful aesthetic and dreary plodding acting and execution.
