Best anti-heroes
13 March 2011 | by copperncherrioSee all my reviews

Where the Psychos are the fledging anti-heroes in a show. They each mysteriously receive a letter saying " I KNOW WHAT YOU DID." Frightened for what's to come, they each act accordingly to their own taste. But first you find out what their daily rituals of being creepers. AND I do mean creepers.

The concept is unique and fun, because they do not limit themselves in the horror of it all. This is a great watch for Halloween or anything for that matter. I was not empathic towards any of the main characters (except for the clown at one point)…

Overall, this is not your typical Dexter… these people are mentally deranged with a multitude of problems, and there is no justification for what they do, other than being victims of their own past or mind. I say this is a great watch!

Conceptually brilliant, I see HBO or Showtime doing their own version of it to the step of HBO's Carnivale.
