My reaction
Synopsis: a couple special effects guys and their cohorts test whether various urban legends are possible
How I saw it: streaming from Netflix, over the past few days
Concept: Great.
Story: Bad.
Characters: Good.
Dialog: Indifferent.
Pacing: Good.
Cinematography: Indifferent.
Special effects/design: Good.
Acting: Bad.
Music: Indifferent.
Subjective Rating: 6/10 (Okay).  It's mildly entertaining, but the show's just not awesome anymore. They only occasionally test something that isn't either stupid or just an excuse to bring in explosives technicians.
Objective Rating: 2.3/4 (Okay).
