I expected something MUCH better from the series. The filming & music were okay, but the pacing was just BAD. Episode 3 is an example of PREMATURE REVELATION; after it, the remaining 7 episodes were padded, had no real horror or even suspense, and ended with artsy ambiguity. Overall, a 6--an example of filming a weak earlier work of a famous writer. And Martin and the cast actually seem proud of this big MEH...
#Strangers is unquestionably a roller coaster ride of plot lines. The interesting twists don’t start taking place until the second or third episode, which is another way of saying that the first episode is somewhat ill-represented of what is to come; the premiere is setting up what is to come of a strange man, in a strange city, dealing with a horrific situation. What First starts out looking like a straightforward narrative, becomes twisted, unlike any other movie, or tv show, I can remember having watched. The further you delve into this #BritishSeries, the more twists and turns develop into new situations, leaving heaps of evidence in its wake. What makes this series great is the #FilmingLocations, such as #HongKong #Macau and #London #GreatBritain, in addition to the exceptional acting, most of whom are not well known actors, although very well-trained, with the exception of master of all things British, #JohnSimm. If you watch this show, put yourself in his shoes, being in a country with laws unlike your home country, dealing with red-tape, looking for answers, and not only having nobody to rely on, but finding out that his wife, who just passed away, was somebody else altogether. In my opinion, this is a well written and directed story line, broadcast on #iTV. I am not sure there could be a second season to this story, although it is possible, however I am hoping for more television shows of this caliber in the near future.

Watch Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team Online
It takes a lot more than pompoms and a winning smile to become a member of one of the nation's most iconic cheerleading teams in the world as CMT discovers in the two-hour special, Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team. CMT cameras document the audition process as 1,000 women descend upon Texas Stadium for Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders open auditions. CMT cameras will capture the entire journey of the 2005-2006 squad from auditions, through training camp, all the way to the first home game, with unprecedented access. "Through the years, I have found that most people don't truly understand what it takes to be a cheerleader," says Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders director Kelli McGonagill Finglass. "This CMT special breaks through the mystique of the organization to reveal a group of women with extraordinary talent, sacrifice and diversity. I am proud for the nation to see how truly impressive the ladies are while always embracing a humble, hometown girl spirit." With unlimited access, CMT's original special will take viewers every step of the way, as the field of candidates is whittled down from more than 1,000 to just 38. CMT will go behind the scenes throughout the three audition phases -- preliminaries, semifinals and finals. Then it's off with the 45 remaining candidates for a grueling three-month training camp to learn more than 50 song-and-dance routines for the upcoming football season. Ultimately 38 women will be selected for the 2005-2006 Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders squad, and CMT will be there as they perform at the first home game against their rivals, the Washington Redskins.
