'Happy Town': Can we talk about it?

happy-town-320.jpgDid you catch the premiere of "Happy Town" Wednesday night?

There's a lot going on in that picturesque little place, with its sheriff going off the deep end, its town weirdo getting murdered and two mysterious strangers -- who both clearly have some hidden agenda -- charming the pants off the adorable old resident widows.

But I'm not going to lie, I'm kind of digging it. It was a fun watch, no?

Hanging out in the town -- Haplin, Minnesota -- is like wrapping yourself in a cozy, little blanket with its bread factory and quaint storefronts surrounded by beautiful fall colors. But the intrigue of the dark and mysterious elements lurking just beneath the surface adds a whole other element.

Sure, there are some issues. The murder scene up front was way cheesy. I'll never understand people's fascination with the man-getting-tortured-begging-for-his-life-followed-by-blood-splattering-everywhere scene. It's been done.

But I'm into the characters and really kind of want to know what comes next. Who is Chloe? What is her connection to the sheriff? And what's on that third floor?

I guess I'll be watching next week.

You too?

Talk to me...
