My thoughts:

I highly recommend this show but in saying that I know for sure that this will not be for everyone. This show is a whole experience! Love, family, legacy, horror, racism, sci fi, adventure, mystery, monsters and magic. Each episode is a roller coaster ride and even though the vibe of each episode can vary it still runs along a connected continuous story that catches you up along the way.

This show can be really heavy at times mainly due to the truths that are expressed in fantastical ways. The stands out actors are pretty much everyone featured and everyone pretty much gets a chance of shine but if I had to pick just one I would have to go with Tic (Jonathan Majors who I've been a fan of since I first seen him in the movie "The Last Black Man in San Francisco")

If what I said has peeked your interest you will love this hard at times but truthful and heartfelt journey of a family finding their place in Lovecraft Country! Warning, don't view this show on an empty mind! Check it out!
