Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, Syfy kicks off a new supernatural drama Superstition. The Hastings family has been secretly protecting their small town of La Rochelle, Georgia, for almost a century from evil forces known as Infernals. Isaac Hastings (Mario Van Peebles, Roots) and wife Bea (Robinne Lee, Hitch) are the proprietors of the town’s only funeral home. Ever since his boys were young, Isaac been training them to fight ghosts and demons. However, 16 years ago, an incident left youngest son Arlo dead, and first-born Calvin immediately left to join the military. Now Calvin (Brad James, Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse) has returned from Afghanistan to rejoin his father in the fight against evil. Aiding them in their efforts are forensic scientist Tilly (Tatiana Zappardino), Sheriff May Westbrook (Demetria McKinney, House of Payne) and her teenage daughter Garvey (Morgana Van Peebles, Ali), who works part-time in the funeral home. Other than May, the rest of local police department isn’t aware of what the Hastings are really up to, and she tries to keep things that way.

The premiere jumps right into the thick of things while also introducing us to the main characters as well as this mysterious small town. The details as to the nature of some of the relationships between the characters slowly unfolds, and we learn that some of them are keeping secrets or hidden motivations that will be revealed over the course of the series. The pilot sets up this spooky atmosphere that is ripe for tales of demons, spirits, and other supernatural creatures wreaking havoc on the small town. I enjoyed tonight’s premiere and look forward to seeing more of the series.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” Calvin Hastings returns home to reconnect with his family, but the reunion is cut short by a string of killings instigated by a supernatural villain only Calvin & his family can take down.

See how this new drama compares to Supernatural tonight on Syfy at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Marvel’s Inhumans, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin, Ginormous Food, and Mike Judge Presents: Tales From the Tour Bus.
