Psychoville is a genuinely interesting little black comedy. It is a take-off on horror movies, but one that manages to create some genuine intrigue (as opposed to the Scary Movie series, which was funny but whose story was disposable). The characters are a varied and fairly imaginative array of grotesques.

But it is also inconsistent. Sometimes it's very funny, other times just uncomfortable. The worst episode of season 1 was easily #4, which broke the formula of inter-cutting the stories of multiple characters and just had a straight half-hour sketch based on the mother-son serial killers, who I never even found that interesting in small doses.

I should note that I'm not a big fan of horror movies, and at times the horror elements creeped me out a bit. I would expect horror movie fans to enjoy this series more than I did.

While the end of season one paved the way for season 2, I decided to skip it. I don't regret watching season 1, but for me, that was enough.
