AMERICAN GOTHIC

amgoth1No, I’m not talking about the showdown between the Democrats and the Republicans…although there are similarities.

I mean the short-lived, but much-loved TV series, American Gothic, brainchild of Shaun Cassidy.
Wow, being Joe Hardy on the Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries sure messed him up.
Or maybe having David Cassidy for a bro.  Or was it Da Doo Ron Ron?
Whatever, this show was seriously hair-raising (see what I did there, back to Shaun Cassidy and his big hair) and wickedly cool. amgoth3

Gary Cole was evil, but in a you’re-hot-way, as Sheriff Buck.

The cast was impressive including:amgoth2

Gary Cole (Office Space, The Brady Bunch movies, VEEP, True Blood, The Good Wife, Chuck, Hop, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby),
Jake Weber (Elementary, Medium, House, Pelican Brief, Pushing Tin),
Lucas Black (X-Files, Jarhead),
Paige Turco (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies, All My Children, Damages),
Brenda Blakke (The Mentalist, CSI, Star Trek: TNG),
Sarah Paulson (12 Years A Slave, Serenity, American Horror Story – Murder House, Asylum and Coven),
Nick Searcy (Justified, Cast Away, The Ugly Truth).
Bruce Campbell sure got bugged.
22 episodes was not nearly enough.

This show was sadly way ahead of its time.

Replay this now and it would be a huge hit.

amgoth4Supernatural amusement that should have gone on and on and on.
