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)

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…

“Damn..Why Can’t We Have Nice Things?”

A little while ago, I was mindlessly swiping through Instagram stories, searching for funny quarantine memes and Tik Tok videos. A Black woman that I follow is the co-owner of a successful small business and enjoys luxury purchases. She documented her day of treating her mom to a much-needed quarantine “Girls Day.” Socially distanced brunch and shopping. Seeing her mother squeal with delight at spending time with her daughter was so comforting to watch since I had been mentally and emotionally exhausted with the devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic and…

Lovecraft Country – Holy Ghost (S1E3)

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. However, by the end of the episode I was so invested in some “get back” for the souls of the experiment victims in the house that I was yelling at my screen. Let’s try to unpack some of this… All About Leti This week we are given more insight into…
