Spooky Sisters Binge club!

Caught anything good on TV lately? I sure have. Not only is it a golden age for shows in general, there’s more good, weird, spooky, horror stuff to watch than ever before!

First up, The Order. It’s got ALL the weird shit: secret societies, magic, werewolves, family drama, curses… I mean, what isn’t part of this show’s mythology? Netflix recently released the entire season 2 and I binged both seasons at once. It’s not perfect, but it is quite weird, offbeat, and not like anything else I’ve watched.

Here’s my warning: the main character, our bro Jack, is not the greatest person. In fact, he’s kind of a dick. Luckily, there’s a pretty large cast of characters (though side players die with alarmingly regularity) and I was completely “in” when Jewel Staite showed up.

Castle Rock season 2! Castle Rock is an anthology similar to American Horror Story, so this season has a different case of characters than the previous season, but it’s set in the same disturbed town. It’s spooky and horrifying and, at times, edge-of-your-seat tense. Plus, Lizzy Caplan is killing it as Annie Wilkes.

I liked season 1 but I’m really enjoying season 2 more, though it isn’t done yet. Hulu painfully releases one episode per week, so unlike The Order, I only binged a handful. And now I’m waiting for my next fix of creeping sense of dread..

Have you watched either of these? What’s your take?
