Sometimes it can be difficult to say exactly who Locke & Key was made for.
Inspired by a comic series by Joe Hill illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez, the show tells the story of the Locke family after they move to the mysterious key house, where they soon discover hidden keys that are used for a variety of magical purposes can be.
With its emphasis on youthful romance and magical powers, "Locke & Key" often feels like an adaptation for young adults, but it also enters darker areas with a lot of horror and a convincing focus on the persistent trauma of the family after the violence of her husband's death / Father Rendell Locke.
Despite some issues, your podcast moderators for original content agree that the show manages to effectively balance these different elements, with surprising plot twists, creepy images, and a particularly compelling sibling relationship between the two young Lockes Tyler (played by Connor Jessup ) and Kinsey (Emilia Jones).
In addition to reviewing the show, we are also discussing the announcement that Netflix has acquired Adam McKay's next film, Don & # 39; t Look Up, in which Jennifer Lawrence will star. We had less to say about the film itself than about our attitudes towards a possible asteroid apocalypse.
