Excellent New Territory for a Beloved Show
21 October 2018 | by meghankaltenbachSee all my reviews

Loved this episode! This season of Lore marks a continuation of a well-adapted, beautifully-written series. The direction and acting make for haunting viewing. The move away from the narration of season one was such a wise choice, and the show feels more immediate, more graphic (in a good way), and much more vibrant now. The show writing is smooth, believable, and puts the viewer into the world of Lore in a way that Aaron Mahnke should be proud of. Can't recommend it highly enough.
