As of late, there has been a heck of a lot of conversation pertaining to a newly released show on Netflix titled ‘Squid Game.’ I read that this show is on track to becoming Netflix’s most successful show ever, and from what I have heard about it, I’m not exactly surprised; ‘Squid Game’ bring a whole new meaning to game shows, and the premise of the series seems to be a rather interesting one.
I haven’t actually watched ‘Squid Game,’ and while I’m not saying I won’t at some point, I would like to draw your attention to another show that was newly released, and also created by Netflix. It is titled ‘Midnight Mass,’ and allow me to say that this show is a must watch for anyone who enjoys psychological thrillers.
‘Midnight Mass’ is a limited series and follows a group of folks living on a very remote fishing island referred to as Crockett. The town itself doesn’t have a whole lot to offer to its residents as it has been hit with a multitude of tragedies and environmental crises, yet the people living there are prideful and proud of their home.
There are a few key characters present in ‘Midnight Mass,’ one of them being Riley, played by Zach Gilford, who has just returned to Crockett after serving four years in prison for killing a woman while driving drunk. Upon his return, though, Riley comes to the realization that the arrival of a new priest in town has provoked miracles, tragedies, and the tumultuous presence of fear.
I made a mental note to watch this show the first time I heard about it, and I have not, in any way, shape or form, been disappointed. I’m just about finished the entire series as it consists of seven episodes, and so far, I’m boogying through it pretty quickly.
This show is a masterpiece. It will make you question faith, religion, Catholicism and mysticism, all while opening your eyes and broadening your perspective of all things church-based.
Take that, ‘Squid Game.’
