The Victorian card gimmick I hadn’t seen before. And I’m a sucker for any show that turns down the lights to near pitch black.
What I didn't like
The structure made no sense.
Guests are greeted to this being the 45th gathering of a psychic organization, but then it over explains some entry level topics around spiritualism – if we were at the 45th gathering, the attendees would be well acquainted. There is little additional inclusion of this being the 45th gathering (if the joke is that we’re all first time attendees, the setup doesn’t really deliver).
And the title of the show reads “Secrets of Victorian Psychics” but it never reveals any secrets.
The final “scare” was unsatisfying, but this could be because I’ve seen too many similar shows. Regardless, it was an abrupt ending that didn’t tie anything together (not that there was anything to tie together).
My overall impression
Uninspired, and a retread of previously worn ideas, like a high school student’s interpretation of “Play Dead.”
