FreakyLinks (2001)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

FreakyLinks (2001) In the series pilot Adam Barnes (Ethan Embry) recounts the story of how he runs an internet website that deals with the supernatural and unexplained. His identical twin brother had started it and was ultimately killed because of it, as he came too close to discovering the truth about a certain type of creature. The first episode is dark and creepy, along the lines of X-FILES. We're introduced to psychologist Chloe Tanner (a pre-nose job Lisa Sheridan of INVASION), who was engaged to Adam's dead brother, and Jason, the African-American sidekick/cameraman. And Dennis Christopher is Vince Elsing, a friend of Adam's brother who has spent years in a mental institution for "knowing too much". Of the thirteen episodes half are serious ones, such as a woman policeman who is killing her colleagues and the ghost of a dead girl who was locked down in an oil drum and starved to death. In "Coelecanth This" they stumble upon a car accident in which they find a girl claiming something dragged off her boyfriend. Turns out to be a pterodactyl that reappears every 30 years. "Live Fast, Die Young" features Eric Balfour (SIX FEET UNDER, VERITAS: THE QUEST) as a guy who is able to die and come back.

But the second half of the show are goofy, along the lines of SPECIAL UNIT 2 or THE CHRONICLE. The group investigates the Skunk Ape, a bigfoot-like creature sighted in Florida. It's bothering an old lady at a retirement community and at first they believe it to be a trained ape of one of the residents. As it turns out there's a nearby spring that has a special quality--whatever drinks from it reverts to a primitive form. The ape, which looks like a guy in a gorilla suit, turns out to be an old man who has a crush on that lady. "Desert Squid: Myth or Legend" is simply stupid.

The problem with this show is that it's too uneven and goes for the laugh rather than the scare, particularly with the interaction of the characters. It can't decide what it wants to be serious or funny and in doing so is not quite either.
