Season 2 wasn't that bad.

    In fact, I found it pretty entertaining! And, so might anyone else who doesn't mind the "mix-and-match" folklore (a la Ray Harryhausen) in each episode. Like in the Season 2 opener, "Terror In The Deep?" The term "Ajogun" isn't from New Guinea aboriginal mythology. It's the collective term for evil spirits in the religion of the West African Yoruba tribe!

    It was pretty over the top compared to the first season though. They took a detective agency type show and flipped it into a supernatural creature of the week type look in the second season. If they had maybe stuck with one format from the beginning, it might have helped.

    Maybe the Nielsens from Season 1 weren't encouraging enough to trust the conventional "detective agency" format. So, they decided to jump the shark with all of Season 2. All I know is that I, personally, didn't tune into the show _until_ I read about the flip!
