We're wrapping up Halloween Month over at Wandering Through The Shelves. I'm not ready to be done with Halloween season yet. In our TV picks, we're talking about the weird. There's plenty of that to go around. Here's what I came up with.
1) Castle Rock
The town in this show is almost a character itself. Calling it weird is an understatement. I liked the little Easter eggs they threw in. Like Shawshank prison playing a huge part, and Jackie being the niece of good ol' Jack Torrence from The Shining. When I initially wrote this post, I was only half way through Castle Rock and I said it was "fun." While the acting is great, I don't think I could ever fully recommend this to anyone because they answered NONE of the questions they asked, then had the balls to tease a second season.
2) Stranger Things
Of course a show called Stranger Things would be in this category. I'm quite over 80's films/TV shows but I love it in this. These kids are incredible actors. It's a shame only Millie Bobby Brown ever gets recognition.
3) The Alienist
A psychologist in the early 1900's helps a police secretary and an illustrator solve a murder. I loved this mini series. It had great atmosphere and of course, was pretty weird.
