Lovecraft Country

description

Lovecraft Country is a television series based on the novel of the same name by Matt Ruff. The show is set in the 1950s and follows the story of Atticus Freeman, a Black man living in Jim Crow-era America who embarks on a journey with his family to find his missing father. Along the way, they encounter supernatural creatures and face racism from both humans and otherworldly beings.

The series explores themes of racism, family, and the horror genre. It addresses the pervasive racism that Black people faced during that time period, including segregation, police brutality, and the fear of being lynched. The show also highlights the strength and resilience of Black families in the face of such adversity, as well as the importance of community and belonging.

Lovecraft Country subverts the horror genre by incorporating the real-life horrors of racism into the supernatural storyline. It also features a diverse cast and crew, with a majority of the main cast being people of color and women. The series has received critical acclaim for its unique blend of horror and social commentary, as well as its representation of marginalized groups in mainstream media.

Saving Hope

2011
Drama
It seems like NBC decided not to give up with paranormal things in 2012. After the cancelation of Awake and realizing that Smash is not going to be a great hit, they decided to launch brand new supernatural-paranormal medical drama with far not first two-word gerund/noun title Saving Hope. But please, don't expect it to be a kind of chimera with mixed DNA of Saving Grace and Rising Hope. Not even close. To describe what Saving Hope is. Let's begin with the "complication" of the plot: two nice people are snuggling inside the wedding cab which is suddenly gets struck by the car. We see as the wedding couple acts absolutely professionally saving the life of the driver by using only medical equipment they have: a pair of common scissors and a tampon. This act of help reveals the newlyweds as the good doctors exactly that they are. The groom is Dr. Charles Harris (Michael Shanks) and the bride is Alex Reid (Erica Durance). However, the situation is getting worse after Alex realizes what a whack in the head Charles got during the accident. Shortly the traumatic brain injury sends Dr. Charles Harris to the hospital bed with the coma diagnosis instead of the honeymoon. As a side effect he receives a supernatural power to walk unseen and unheard between his former colleagues and patients. During his trips he immerses himself deep into the emotions of dying people and doctors trying to save them. He attempts to help both of them using his paranormal gift (which reminds us the CBS' Gifted Man). Charles also trying to get in touch with his ex-fiancee Alex, but all of these attempts fail frightening her almost to death. On the other hand Alex is trying to struggle for saving Charles' life, while he is in coma, but day after the day, she realizes the unfortunate futility of her attempts.
