Happy Town

Happy Town may be the best horror TV show of our generation. It's genuinely creepy, extraordinarily suspenseful, and delivers truly unexpected plot twists. It reminds me of Twin Peaks, but with a little less goofy charm and a little more of a sinister edge.

What's it about? I don't know. But there's a bunch of unsolved kidnappings, a murder, a young police officer with a face like apple pie, a strange goat hammer, forbidden teenage love, some enigmatic person named Chloe, a sheriff who's gone nuts, and lots of weird underscoring by Carly Simon's "You're So Vain."

Head on over to your favorite streaming site and get caught up. I'm definitely hooked.


  1. Now we definitely have to check out Happy Town. Thanks for the review! Personally, we think V.J. Chambers should be writing the show....
