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)

Mind = Blown. That is all. That is this week’s review. Just kidding. And for the record, The BlackWithNoChaser Facebook Page is bomb.

Lewis is a self made brand and that should…

Lovecraft Country – A History of Violence (S1E4)

Christmas came on Friday when I saw a message on Black With No Chaser’s Facebook page that announced episode 4 was already available. (Good looking out Jay G for letting us know!) I hurriedly opened my iPad to see if I could find it. My heart swelled with joy as I realized I could actually watch three days early. It doesn’t take a whole lot to make me happy, and this little treat made my day. “…but I love pulp stories. I love that the heroes get to go on…
