Campy but cool

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Good storytelling; the episodes never fail to entertain and the atmosphere has a Gothic feel to it, although slightly campy at times, somewhat like the old "Dark Shadows". Plotline continuity does suffer sometimes in my opinion; I was particularly disappointed that they killed off the beautiful "Abigail" character played by Kari Wuhrer for no apparent good reason.
Speaking of Abby, it seems rather unfortunate at first glance that the Swamp Thing is not provided the same love interest as the Abigail of the DC comic series or the feature films (in the second one she was played by Heather Locklear!) thus helping him forget his sorrows over losing his first wife and being half man and half plant, torn between the two identities and with no apparent way to ease his tortured mind. For much of this installment of episodes, he just can't really seem to get a break! Wait, stop the press -- he does eventually manage to develop a relationship with a lovely and intelligent woman who cares for him and wants to help him regain his humanity. So perhaps, in the end, he truly gets to experience the best of both worlds!
Although it has its shortcomings, for fans of the DC series as well as lovers of weird stories, this series is an interesting adaptation of the DC Comics saga and certainly worth a look."
