What Happened During Andy's Phone Call In 'Chucky' Series Premiere?
In the series premiere of Chucky, series protagonist Jake Wheeler gets a call from someone inquiring about the Chucky doll that he has acquired. Longtime fans of the franchise guessed it to be original Child's Play protagonist Andy Barclay (portrayed once again by Alex Vincent), and this became evident very quickly. However, as the season has gone on, Andy's phone call feels a bit odd.
Angela Black - Series Review
there is no doubt that Joanne Froggatt is a phenomenal actress and in recent years, she has made a name for herself playing female leads who are surviving trauma in it’s difficult and sometimes devastating forms. From Downton Abbey, to Liar and even her voice work narrating books such as Wuthering Heights and The Silent Child - this appears to be where she’s found her niche and with good writing, she thrives with playing these parts.
'Chucky' May Have Changed When 'Cult of Chucky' Takes Place
When it comes to continuity, the Child's Play franchise under Don Mancini (I'm not counting the remake MGM did without him) has done a much better job than other iconic horror franchises. Each Psycho sequel felt like it retconned the previous one. We've seen how The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Halloween franchises have retconned or flat out wiped away previous entries on more than one occasion, at times wanting to only acknowledge the original film as canon. And we've seen how Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street have gotten reboots that got no sequels and felt like dead ends. While Hellraiser has yet to be rebooted, there's not much continuity between each entry, which can feel pretty standalone. After over 30 years, the story of the original Chucky is still going strong, pushing the story forward without wiping away previous entries.
Hamish Linklater Is The Biggest of Many Reasons to Watch "Midnight Mass"

Let's Talk about "Squid Game"
So we’re here… a month after it’s release but let’s delve into the 2021 South Korean series by Hwang Dong-hyuk, Squid Game. Keeping it brief because hey, this show was deep enough it’s not like attention spans are any longer than this one season series (as is so common in k-dramas). Touching base on how I started the series, it’s blatant theme and message, and why I’m not so sure such graphics really translate its message well enough, our first contender for Spooky Month (purely because of its suspense, gore, and timely fashion) is Squid Game!
