Episode 143: Wednesday, Season 1

Andi and Lise rave about season 1 of the Netflix series Wednesday, which follows Wednesday Addams (a fabulous Jenna Ortega) of the iconic Addams family as she’s expelled from yet another high school and ends up at Nevermore Academy, a school for paranormal misfits where her parents first met. While there, Wednesday navigates tensions with the nearby townspeople, teen angst, her relationship with her mom, and a mystery in which something is killing people and it might have ties to the town’s distant past. Excellent script, tight pacing, and wonderful secondary and tertiary characters. This is full of thrills, chills, teen angst and comedy, and a mystery that will keep you guessing.

Shouts-outs: Lise just finished Season 2 of the animated series The Legend of Vox Machina (link HERE) on Prime, which is beautiful to look at but is also well-done and well-written and well worth people’s time. Andi is watching Poker Face (link HERE) on  Peacock starring Natasha Lyonne in a quirky, raunchy mash up of epic road trips, odd jobs, and cat-and-mouse as Nicole’s character Charlie is on the run from a Vegas casino owner in this mystery-of-the-week series.
