Update 4 Nov
The first imdb viewer review was posted after the broadcast of the first three episodes and reads as follows:
Light-hearted punk era science-fiction, 28 October 2012
Author: jnlafargue from Paris
This TV show is a kind of punk version of the 50s classic “Twilight Zone”. The stories told are out of short stories found into “Métal Hurlant”, a very important comics and science fiction magazine published between 1975 and 1987 (and also in the US under the name of “Heavy Metal”), where it was possible to read people like Druillet, Moebius, Wrightson or Corben. Two animated movies have been done : Heavy Metal and Heavy Metal 2000. The “Metal Hurlant Chronicles” is made of short episodes : stories and actors are never the same ones. The cast is quite surprising, with American and french actors. There are only six episodes (making seven stories, as one episode is sliced in two different stories) and the result is quite fair, even if the special effects can seem a little cheesy, but it might be on purpose, as it is naive and funny science-fiction.
