Happy Town, anyone?


Anyone planning to try the new ABC show Happy Town tonight? I have to admit that the promos have done absolutely nothing for me. They haven't really given that much of an impression of the show itself, just a vague horror-like theme. Maybe. I think. (I just read this description and it helped a little, but doesn't it sound kind of like the backstory of the prefab families that come with The Sims?) And Alan Sepinwall's review doesn't do much to make me more hopeful.

But the cast. Oh, the cast. First of all, it has Steven Weber, and as a matter of policy, I will watch at least an episode or two of any show that employs one of the Studio 60 regulars. But if Weber weren't enough - Amy Acker (That Joss Whedon Girl)! Sam Neill (Merlin - no, the other Merlin)! Geoff Stults (the firefighter Kinkirk brother from 7th Heaven)! Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under)! So. I'll give it a try, although I'm not expecting much. I'll let you know how it goes.

I'll watch at least an episode or two-- not really because of the cast (I only recognize Steven Weber and Sam Neill by name, of the ones you list), but just because it looks like something different.

I'm curious about it, but I have to agree that the previews haven't been that great. I think they went too far with the "it's horror, but we're giving it a happy, upbeat presentation" angle. I hope the show will be a little more horror/suspense, a little less cheerful music.
