Netflix has a ten episode series, Haunting of Hill House, which i semi-binged* and it's medium okay. It's supposed to be based on the Shirley Jackson novel, which I want but haven't got yet but I can already tell this is not a good adaptation of the writing.
The same year the original novel was published there was a, as far as I can tell, completely unrelated Vincent Price movie that's just ridiculous enough to get a RiffTrax
that I also watched called House on Haunted Hill**.
I bring this up mostly just to say
House Haunt Hill Hook Car Door.
because that has been going through my brain and I can't imagine an audience for that.
Horror is a weird genre.

It's a good thing I only ever saw the first two seasons of Andromeda. Glossing over the season descriptions it is awfully similar to TV4Fun's nightmare.
Then again, it does seem to have a couple of good (background/revelation) stories in the 4th and 5th seasons, so would you recommend binging the series anyway?
I watched Firefly around 2006, and I don't remember seeing anything of Andromeda before the last year or two seeing bits of it on the Spanish language channel I sometimes watch Xena Warrior Princess on, and I would not have guessed they were tv shows both being made and broadcast in 2002.
It's weird how stuff ages.
like, why does every Gerard Butler movie since 2009 look like a second tier block buster from the mid 90's?
*I think it takes at least be 3 episodes in a row to count as a show "binge", one or two episodes a night is like a 'mini-series special event' type viewing.
**they make a jarring number of joke/references to famous people who unfortunately died in the 7 years since they filmed this.
