To say this was a character-driven series doesn't put it right; this was an actor-fueled exercise in how what is being said and how it is being said can overshadow everything else on screen. The plot about an apparent ritual  slaying in a Louisiana sugarcane field was intresting though uneven, stretched a little, and it curved here and there across some detours that felt like time-wasters, but what made it all work was its two lead actors delivering what could go down as the performances of their careers. I'd give it an A-.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
