Henley Boone has decided to take up residence in seemingly idyllic Haplin, just as a shocking murder occurs at the local pond. This horrific crime rekindles Happy Town's dark mysteries, including the whispers about an unknown, evil force that has come to be known as the "Magic Man," who may be responsible for the past disappearances of Haplin residents. Tommy Conroy, a small town deputy and son of the long-time popular sheriff, must help solve the crime while easing the town's growing fears. This is made more difficult when it becomes obvious that the residents are hiding secrets, and that includes its newest resident, Henley. Written by ABC Publicity

Who is Chloe?
29 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been following news on this show since it was first announced and after watching the pilot i was quite pleasantly surprised by the delivery. This show has a premise that was hit or miss from the start, but it seems like they have hit it dead on from the start.

The CHARACTERS were easy to connect with from the very start, with the exception of a few (but thats just because their supposed to be a mystery) While they may seem to be cookie cutter characters, there is a lot of undertones that there is much more going on with each one.

The STORY was set up great for future episodes. At times while watching the pilot i felt like i was reading the first chapter of a Stephen King novel, as it was fleshed out quite well for a TV series. There were a lot of suspenseful moments and scenes that had me leaning towards the TV set, very much involved.

It usually takes a show 3-5 episodes to really get a rhythm and give the viewer an idea of what direction the show will go. Will Happy Town bring the same mystique and suspense on a consistence basis, I'm willing to bet it will. And i would also expect that this show will find great success, becoming the talk of the town along the lines of, "OMG, did you see what happen on last weeks episode?" Even to people discussing their own opinions and views on the twist and turns in a very LOST like matter.

In CONCLUSION, "Happy Town" is a show that could be slated for quite a long run if done correctly. Some edge of your seat moments, mixed with a lil comedy and all wrapped up in some mystery. A show that deserves a real chance. I suggest to check it out and be the first on the bandwagon. ~ Resi
