    The premise was so intresting a cop took the law into his own hands and killed the man who raped his wife. He then was killed and went to hell since that one act of vengful murder was still a sin. He is then given a second chance when some demons escsape from hell. I loved the Miltonesq Devil and the interaction between them who's with me?

    It never should have been cancelled. I'm a big fan of John Glover and he was the perfect devil...

    This show was fantastic! I was hooked ,like, 5 minutes into the show.  Great premise, stories, characters, atmosphere. Peter Horton did a good jod as Stone and I liked John Glover as the Devil.Fox's Friday shows never seemed to last for very long.

    It's a real shame this show never caught on and got canned. Here in the UK it had a really rough time of it, on late night the time slot kept shifting. I'd love it to get a release on DVD.

    Speaking of which, does anyone know if it has been released in DVD? I caught a few episodes of the show and I loved it.

    Great show! Perfect casting of Horton and Glover. I agree with everyone here, it should not have been cancelled.

    You're right, Horton and Glover made a great pair! Wish they would have brought it back

    Why is it whenever I think I have found a good tv show to watch it is canned. I haven't yet started watching this. Have been looking for shows to download, I come accross this one and also The Dresden Files, but bothe never made it after the first season, I am a bit worried about downloading them and watching them incase i get took hooked. lol But then I might not watch them as meaningfully knowing that there isn't anything to go on with, IYKWIM.

    Just like moonlight I love that show and so hoping that they don't can it. Do u suggest any other shows I might like, I am waiting to borrow buffy and Angel off a friend to see if I like that.

    The premise for this show was fantastic, I can't believe it didn't catch on with more fans. I got into it late in the season & managed to tape a few episodes once during a SciFi channel marathon & am hoping it comes out on DVD soon. It was a terrific show & should not have been cancelled!!!
