    The old TV shows like Twilight Zone have marathons that I still enjoy watching. It's not because I was young when I first saw the episodes. It's because the writing in them was *excellent.* The acting was better too. Overall, even though Twilight Zone was in black and white, it was a far superior show. Outer Limits was good too, but a different good, like The Night Gallery. This new show doesn't have the same quality writers as TZ or OL. Too bad.

    I think that this is pushing the envelope and does not belong on primetime television.

    I seriously hope so, because im throughly enjoying myself. Anticipateing watching this every Thursday it goes on and I dont watch much save for House MD on TV so its nice to have something else to watch on regular TV, since they canceled Drive right when it was getting good.

    It's refreshing to see it.

    ohh ok, because the first time you said that you hoped it wasn't going to stay on the air i didn't deduce that you hoped it should be cancelled.

    I bet it will have at least one more season but im sure this(Like most shows that are actually unique or creative) will be of the air before 2010.

    Sad ain't it TV gets worse & worse every year.

    I fear that the TVGeddon is upon us.

    I don't find this show scary at all. And I tend to get scared easily. It's just more thriller I guess.

    Either way, as a show in all I think it's pretty good. I like watching it every week, although I've lost the sort of feeling that "ohh, it's gonna be scary. I better be prepared" because lets face it... It really is not.

    Still, I hope it lasts... Beats some other cr*p airing these days.

    One of this shows biggest problems is it can't match up to Masters of Horror which it is the spiritual third season one because of the limitations of Broadcast TV compared to Premium cable. There is so much it can't get away with now and it could really hurt.

    Man it's sure nice to have a show like this on the air. I wouldn't even say that the episodes so far have been outstanding or anything, but I've needed my fix of this sort of show for awhile. I don't really like the straight out gore-fest horror type shows I like these more suspensful psychological twist type shows.

    The production quality has been very nice but the acting has left something to be desired, especially that wedding episode. Blech.

    I never expect this type of show to last on a major network, this seems to be more of a niche market. I'm just hoping they can last for the season.

    I think Fear Itself is significantly better than Masters of Horror - the second season. I really liked the first season, but the second was almost unwatchable (Family one of the few exceptions).

    Fear Itself loses a few points for being watered down, but it gains Many, Many points for leaving out the annoying political messages.

    I'm not overly impressed with the episodes but they sure beat the heck out of watching stinking "reality" shows.

    I can't find any scheduled air dates beyond July 31. Anybody know if it's been cancelled, on hiatus or being given a slow death by bouncing it all over the place so we never know when it's on?

    Cheers, Sean

    Is this coming back for a second season or was it just a mini series?
