This is the only supernatural show that even ever compared to the X-Files level. It is brilliant. I curse whoever canceled it.
The ideas are novel, handled well, have splendidly filmed "shadowbacks" and the cast works very well together.
The idea of a privileged society of "secrecy" and living in an ancient and beautiful castle on a private island appeals to the kid in us and sets us up for wanting to be scared. Then they do it! And then you find yourself wanting to live in the castle too.
The cast feels like family. The place is warm and cozy, with fog and fireplaces. All of this artfully counteracts with the cold and decidedly non-cozy effects of demonic appearances.
The team investigates outside forces and forces within their own walls, some following them home.
Buy all 4 seasons of this if you can.
