If you’re looking for a lovable protagonist in a spooky setting, this show is legit the place. to. be. The show is about Dr. Jared Hel, a potentially immortal, amnesiac doctor who works at a facility called The Enclosure in a small midwestern town. Jared is lovable, charismatic, self-effacing, smart, and constantly in and out of unsettling, endlessly-intriguing setups as he searches for answers about his past, and the town. I fell in love almost instantly. The series draws on actual midwestern lore to create a really visceral sense of the town--we’re big fans of the Snipe Hunt episode, which brings us in on local traditions in a way that really establishes the central juxtaposition of these really genuinely unsettling creatures and entities in this town and the almost-aggressive polite energy of small midwestern America--an introvert’s true worst nightmare. (Look, I instantly imprint on any character who feels awkward at a party, I can't help it.) Part Twin Peaks, part Pushing Daisies, part early-Sleepy Hollow (the tv show), and all heart.
