Kyle’s Choice

channelzero1011smallTonight, Syfy kicks off the first season of its 6-part horror series, Channel Zero: Candle Cove. In 1988, when Mike Painter was twelve, his twin identical twin brother Eddie was the fifth and final victim in a series of child murders. However, Eddie’s body was never found. Mike (Paul Schneider, Parks and Recreation) is now a child psychologist and has never been back home to Iron Hill, Ohio, since those grisly events. He decides to surprise his widowed mother Marla (Fiona Shaw, Harry Potter, True Blood.) with a visit, but also has an ulterior motive: he wants to investigate the murders. While Mike is having dinner with childhood friends Sheriff Gary Yolen (Shaun Benson, In Just Cause) and his wife Jessica (Nicole Brown, The Strain), Mike sees the couple’s daughter watching static on a television. She tells Mike she was watching Candle Cove, a strange children’s series that was only on the air for two months in 1988, during the period when the murders were committed. Mike starts seeing unusual things, and when a child goes missing, he suspects the gruesome events from his past are happening again – and that this TV show may somehow be connected. The series also stars Luisa D’Oliveira (The 100) as deputy Amy Welch, who is too young to remember the original murders.

This is one eerie show that you probably won’t want to watch alone, especially in the dark! Tonight’s premiere does a great job of both slowly unfolding the events of the past and establishing the strange things that are starting to occur in the present. The story takes some unexpected and really creepy turns in tonight’s premiere, and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the story unfolds – and learn what’s going on with the incredibly disturbing show-within-the-show. Channel Zero is an anthology series, and the first season, titled Candle Cove, will tell a complete story over its 6 episodes. A second season telling a different story is already being planned.

On tonight’s episode, “You Have to Go Inside,” the return of a kids’ TV show from the 1980s coincides with the disappearance of a young person.

Get spooked from the beginning tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., This Is Us, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, Scream Queens, The Flash, No Tomorrow, Halt and Catch Fire, Aftermath, and Chrisley Knows Best.
