  • Mouse finds a buried sunken ship in the tunnels. This prompts Cullen to steal the bulk of the gold for himself.

    While this series has been available on DVD, I watched a whole marathon on Chiller. This series had interesting episodes. "Fever" is perhaps one of the best episodes this series had. It poses the societal problem of greed.

    The underground dwellers up to this point have accustomed themselves to survive on what they have but when the opportunity comes for them to better themselves with all the treasures they could ever want, trouble arises.

    Cullen played by decent actor David Clennon really steals this episode playing the outcast who wants to horde for himself. However, there is the usual great acting by everyone else in this series including Linda Hamilton, James Avery and Ron Perlman.

    Linda's character said greed was a problem in her world but greed is common in every world. She also makes the mistakes of meeting a greedy businessman who she makes the mistakes of showing of her new gol necklace (which comes from the gold collection Mouse found).

    It was a great episode minus the ending which was unrealistic. However, a must see episode nonetheless.
