Meanwhile a mysterious old man named Charlie Manx kidnaps a young boy, killing his parents, and seems to be draining his life force as they drive to a mysterious place called "Christmasland." Maggie, a young woman who was friends with the boy and his family, has the special power of drawing Scrabble tiles from in a bag that spell out a clue to find missing things. She uses this to try and find the lost boy. Written by NOS4A2LUVR

Creepy but boring introduction
4 June 2019 | by cruise01See all my reviews

NOS4A2

1.01 (2.5 out of 5 stars).

The episode pilot may not be the best or strong start of a series. The concept is pretty creepy and scary. With an immortal being played by Zachary Quinto's character that lures children into another dimension called Christmasland. Were every day is Christmas and unhappiness is illegal. The opening intro was dark and creepy. From there on out. Meeting the main character Vic McQueen and her dealing with her mother and father struggling marriage. And her mother trying to shut her future down from going to college. She begins to have visions and can travel through a bridge that was destroyed. It goes on to build her character. It is a very slow moving episode and uninteresting. It is hard to get into the series with this episode. The characters are dull and boring. Nothing really happens to get the story progressing besides a child is missing. And there are people with abilities.

It is just a boring introduction to a good concept series.
