I like the show's premise. The directing, cinematography and acting are well done, while the stories have been interesting and engaging. A possible limitation might be found in the fact that (so far) the subject character's 'Past Life' is always that of a person who had died shortly before the character was borne. A story where the past life incarnation was from several hundred years in the past might give the team a wider venue.
