Storyline

Lovecraft Country follows Atticus Freeman as he joins up with his friend Letitia and his Uncle George to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father. This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback.

I really wanted to love this show
28 October 2020 | by elli56See all my reviews

AND after the opening episode, even with the unexpected fantasy ending! I was hooked & raving about it to anyone who would listen.....

So what happened after the initial 10 I gave it? Well for me it jus lost it's way & tried to cover toooo many subplots with a good handful along PC lines which I didnt think really fitted with the main theme, which was racism in 50's America in a fantasy setting . If they had stuck to those main 2 themes I think they had a real winner here but it morphed off into 20mins sub plots with no real part in the story eg his gay dad's escapades in the middle of an episode?? relevance?? NONE!

After the initial opening, which alone is worth the watch it stayed strong before disappearing up its own ar$e at times in the middle before a great tale set in Korea which again you could watch as a standalone, before again we descended into a bit of a mis-mash.

So much promise but in the end sadly didn't really deliver as it tried to cover too many (irrelevant) bases along the way.
