Hiya and happy Sunday everyone!
I know I know… This post isn’t about books? What’s happening here?!
But hear me out: these TV shows are so Halloween worthy you will want to take a break from spooky literature and watch the heck out of them. (*gasp* SHE SAID WHAT?)
If you’re like me and can’t watch horror to save your life, then I present you three alternative shows that are not terribly scary but still perfectly adequate for this dark and ominous season.
(And yes, that is a horrible pun in the title. I’m a cheesy person, okay?)
Good Omens (Amazon Prime)
This is not a secret: I LOVE Neil Gaiman’s books. I read Good Omens with my book club back when I had one and everyone fell in love with the characters and the wacky plot. I didn’t have a chance to write a review for it yet but to be honest, I’m not sure I can!
Both Gaiman and the late Terry Pratchett wanted to turn Good Omens into a show for the longest time but never could. Gaiman then decided he would honour his friend and co-writer by finally bringing it to life. Doesn’t that just break your heart and make it whole again?
Besides, the very best Doctor (David Tennant) stars in it. Who else could pull off the coolest demon on Earth? No one, that’s Who. (*giggles*)
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (Netflix)
Do you love shows like Riverdale, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and American Horror Story? Well then, my friend, this sounds like the perfect fit for you.
I used to love Sabrina the Teenage Witch growing up, and I also managed to watch a bit of the cartoon (which, by the way, was adorable). So when this show was announced, I was over the moon to revisit one of my favourite childhood characters!
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina definitely has nothing to do with those, though. I mean, besides the characters and the general storyline.
Instead, it’s a dark twist on what Sabrina could be if someone had decided that friendly witches were actually cannibal Satan worshippers.
The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell (Netflix)
This is a Halloween-themed cooking show featuring puppets, a Gomez/Morticia-like couple and the hottest dark aesthetic ever. I don’t know what else I can tell you.
Besides the obvious educational component, this show sounds so darn cute and creepy I think anyone (even those who turn up their nose at Bake Off) will probably love it.
If you had any doubts I would include this here, then I have to ask you: have you even looked at my blog? I live for sweets!
Do you prefer horror shows or something a bit tamer?
Are you looking forward to any of these?
