As mentioned on my bio, I love watching TV. In fact, I love it too much. Having said that, I felt compelled to call out The Fall of the House of Usher on Netflix. If you have Netflix and you haven’t seen this yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? “Do It Now”. But seriously, it’s a great show. The writing is superb, and that’s coming from a writer. I can’t watch a show that’s poorly written. Well, that’s a lie really, but I’ll save that for another post. At any rate, the writing on this show should be turned into a case study they use to teach screen writers in school. On top of that, the acting is amazing. Seeing Mark Hamill play a dark and disturbed dude is just one example of the excellence of the entire cast. I’m a huge Edgar Allan Poe fan as well, so I loved all the “call outs” to his work. You certainly don’t have to be a fan of Poe to enjoy this show. I think the writers and actors on this show also did Haunting of Hill House and Blye manor. If it’s not all the actors and writers, it’s most of them. It’s fun to see the actors in completely new rolls in each show. All three shows are epically amazing, but of the three, I will forever hold a special place in my heart for The Fall of the House of Usher. And before I sign off, if I miss a publication date, it’s because I’m watching all these shows again, so blame it on them!
