This week, Summer chats with Joel Thompson, showrunner of Superstition, airing on Syfy, and it’s a series that’s quickly becoming a fan favorite for the mix of Southern gothic, family ties, and ancient lore.
Joel talks about how the writers come together to build this world and this family, and how connections between the members of the Hastings family and those they love anchor the story we’re watching unfold. The bonus comes in slowly learning about how they are tied to the history of the family, the town and the world where the infernals have their own plans… and watching what happens when all of that collides.
Next, Daryll B joins the discussion about what makes the show’s appeal for him, the easter eggs that the writers seem to be leaving for us, and the resonances with shows and comics from the past. Enough to make you want to rewatch the episodes to see what else you might have missed!
Don’t miss Summer’s “5 Episodes In” review of Superstition, and weigh in with your on thoughts.
