Tremors

Show Summary

This spinoff of the Tremor movies chronicles the town of Perfection, Nevada, which has a little problem with great big worms. The Graboids, and their offspring the Shriekers and Ass-Blasters, have overrun the valley but are on the government's protected species list. The locals are (barely) allowed to live there rather then leave their homes, as long as they don't harm the creatures, particularly the giant Graboid known as "El Blanco." Complicating matters, a secret government lab accidentally unleashed a gene-blending substance called "Mixmaster" into the area, occasionally causing various animal-types to recombine into new monsters. The natives of Perfection include survivalist Burt Gummer, 60's hippy-type Nancy Sterngood, and grocery store owner Jodi Chang who all try to make a living. New to Perfection is tour guide Tyler Reed and Rosalita Sanchez, a mysterious woman with a past. Government representative W.D. Twitchell keeps an eye on the whole situation. The series lasted one season on the SciFi Channel before being ignominously cancelled. A fourth movie was released the following January.moreless

  • Great Tv Show beyond expectations !!!

    REally I was totally amazed how well this series was made (They had even great Greg Nicotero __the Walkin Dead in production team), but some of the episodes was really so good that got me almost breathles and that happen only when I watch absolutely top movies !!! Among those episodes for sure the best was episode 9, which got me so into that I was rembling with anger when those activists tried to throw our friends out of town in pretense they are harming El Blanco in his natural habitate. I really hoped that bastard Chad would got eaten by El Blanco, but even his arrest satisfied me ! But I was really really pissed of that this scientist DR Bernsten (sorry if mistakely named her) poisoned El Blanco and gave out fake research so habitants of Perfected Walley would be blamed and forced to leave the town ! Soo I was reall really angry that seh got away just like that wihout being arrested. After all her guilt was same level if not higher than Chads. Ok so she gave recipe for antidote but only because she was exposed, if not El Blanco would die and our friends forced out !!! Yes she should have been arrested or eaten cause she was pure evil behind sweet face. This is only flaw of amazing superb episode 9, still dont get it they did not arrested her !!! So really really amzing TV Series very much reccomend to all, I enjoyed every minute of it and this is for sure on level of The Walkin Dead even, and 100% sure the most underrated tv series in history of TV ! Hope they will realize this one day (people and critics)moreless
  • I think that Tremors was fun for a lot of reasons. It gets two thumbs up from me.

    I had a LOT of fun with this show! Sometimes you just have to let yourself be entertained and not sweat all the little details that we wouldn't know all that much about anyways. The acting and directing seemed, in large part, to be done tongue in cheek. At times that reminded me a little of the old "Adam West" Batman series. If you want realism this show falls short. If I wanted realism I'd turn off the t.v. and go outside. If a second season were ever hatched, I'd be in front of my t.v. right now. What I saw as the single biggest plus for tremors was character development. Movies don't have much time for it but a series does. You learn a lot about the major players in the last few episodes. I thought the last episode had an ending that would have given the series a whole new direction in wich to travel. The introduction of "Larry" as a regular character provided a whole new branch to the story that could have and should have been explored. The secret lab probably would have made it into an episode had the show not been canceled. I just see a lot of potential. I hope it comes back.moreless
  • Giant worms, lonely town. Boring show:(

    1.0
    So after the movies were ended they decided to make a show of it. What were they thinking of. The first movie was good but after that it went downhill fast. I tried watching this show but I could only watch about three minutes of it. I found it horrible. I mean where were their heads when they made this show. I'm assuming that they were inside the giant worms. So if the movies were going down faster then Hood, why would they make a show. It was really not needed. So don't watch if you hated the movies, but really its your own opinion and choice.moreless

    this show was based off of the movies and i know all four movies by heart and wish they would bring the tv show back show i could watch it with out knowing whats about to happen. my family hates watching tremors with me for that reason. then we found out about the tv show and that changed we all watched and i did not get fussed at. i hate the fact that it no longer shows on tv because now i have to find something esle to watch with my family and they dont like the same shows as me and that makes tv night at my house hard because two of us well agree on one thing and the other well not. so i wish it would come BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!moreless
  • Like it.

    9.6
    I think its a very good sci-fi show. Like Burt Gummer Militerize stuff, and the type of weapons it had on there especially the .50 Cal Sniper Rifle. So in think they come with more of this show soon. Also I do like the Cast and having Christopher Lloyd on there was good.. . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . .. . . . . . .. . . . . .. . . . . . . . . .. . .moreless
