Here's a television show that we always watch during the Halloween season. At the turn of this century, Haxan, creators of the film "The Blair Witch Project" developed a series for Fox television known as "FreakyLinks". This great show centered around Derek Barnes and his friends, Lan, Jason, and Chloe, who investigate and document the world of the strange and unusual, then post the results on the FreakyLinks.com website.

In the beginning, Derek took over the investigations into the strange and bizarre after his twin brother, Adam, died under mysterious circumstances. In addition to their investigations into the supernatural and darker side of urban legends, the FreakyLinks team continued to look for clues about Adam's untimely death. As an added mystery, the enigmatic Vince Elsing, who had been the subject of strange scientific experimentation that left him with both paranormal abilities and disabilities, occasionally contacted Derek with information about Adam and on going paranormal phenomena.

This show had believable characters that had a wonderful dynamic interaction and was well written, with just the right mix of horror and humor to make it work. Unfortunately, the series was not renewed after its first season, in spite of a devoted following. In fact, fans created an online petition for Fox to bring the show back for another season. If you were not fortunate enough to have recorded this program when it originally aired your in luck. FreakyLinks is currently airing on Chiller TV.
