    I was impressed with the 1st episode. Can't wait to get more answers.

    The first episode really appealed to me. A little Twin Peaks feeling, but nowhere so extreme on the weird factor. Dialogue is a bit stinted in places, but I get the impression it's intentional and I found it added to the 'something's not quite right" feeling. Loved the characters, liked the variety of storylines introduced and looking forward to more.

    Even as you may be tempted on occasion to roll (or close) your eyes, it’s hard not to be drawn in at least partway.

    All the doom and dread is diverting enough, but the real mystery is this: Will "Happy Town" turn out to be something original -- or just a medley of Freddy Krueger's greatest hits?

    The main thing you've got to remember is, the scripts for this show have to beat the audience over the head with exposition.
