Spiro’s character’s troubles began when she made a pact with an underworld group to take over her brother’s debt. It was like shaking hands with the devil, the mob soon asked her for blood. She refused and hell was joggled.

Despite averaging 3.5 million viewers per episode, the show got more negative reviews from critics with the San Francisco Chronicle going as far as to give it a 0-star review.
