Lovecraft Country – Meet Me in Daegu (S1E6)

Or more aptly titled by Nicole N on the Black With No Chaser page as, “I got 99 kills, but Tic ain’t 1.” Ji-Ah the Kamiho This episode, while slower than the others, was quite revealing. We’ve finally met Ji-Ah in the midst of her existence during the Korean war. Initially, I felt like something was off about her. She’s child-like, socially awkward, and is obsessed with musicals. (I can relate to that last one. Don’t judge me.) Surely, this can’t be the woman Tic spoke to on the phone……

Lovecraft Country – Strange Case (S1E5)

Now I told y’all I was scary before LoveCraft Country even started. This week’s episode had all the trappings of a horror movie: a creepy house, ghosts, ne’er-do-well neighbors, and a ritual goat-killing. I had several, “Dis tew much,” moments.

Let’s try to unpack some of this… All About Leti This week we are given more insight into…

Lovecraft Country – Whitey’s on the Moon (S1E2)

This week’s episode hit us fast and hard. Let’s deal with two quick items before we begin discussing the show. 1) Spoilers ahead! You may want to watch the episode before reading this. 2) I write my summation before listening to the podcast and without reading any outside blogs or breakdowns about the show. I consume that material AFTER writing because I want to bring my thoughts to you based on my own experience and interpretation of the show. Do with that what you will. Ok, let’s get it… The…

Lovecraft Country – Sundown (S1E1)

Well, ya’ll… Lovecraft Country did not disappoint! The first episode kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. I’m not even sure where to start digging into “Sundown” since I have far more questions than answers. The Dream Let’s begin at the beginning, shall we? The story opens with a dream sequence where Atticus is fighting in the Korean war. As he is advancing on his enemies, aliens descend upon the battlefield. Atticus is confronted by a woman-like figure who whispers something into his ear in…
