I previewed this show a year ago, and my first thought was, who would watch this? Children killing their parents doesn’t seem good or worthwhile to watch. I didn’t realize at the time that the show is based on a Ray Bradbury story. Had I known this and more of the background to the series, I may have been more receptive.
Now that I have researched it and re-watched the first episode, I find it intriguing and not disturbing. Also, how can you pass up anything with Steven Spielberg at the helm. His vision for the show shines through, and I recommend the series as worth a watch.
