I completely forgot this was airing tonight! The cast and filmmakers are TOP NOTCH and I cannot wait to see this. Honestly feels like HBO is on another level than everyone else still with TV Shows.

Based on Matt Ruff 's novel of the same name, Lovecraft Country follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he meets up with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett) and his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father (Michael Kenneth Williams). This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback.

Lovecraft Country* is executive produced by showrunner Misha Green along with J.J. Abrams, Jordan Peele, Bill Carraro, Yann Demange, Daniel Sackheim, and David Knoller.

What a crazy first episode! It started good and then just went crazy in the 2nd half. The season preview looks amazing.

I highly recommend this if you like fantasy!
