In my constant effort to make our Pop Culture focuses as often as the Heavy Music ones, I am constantly keeping a look out for a trailer or series announcement that falls into the comic book, science fiction or horror realm and needless to say its been rather bountiful. This latest one for a new series called “NOS4A2” was a mystery to me because while I am considering myself an avid reader, I’ve slacked over the last couple of years and need to fix that. I did some research and discovered the book was by Joe Hill who is the son of the legendary Stephen King. Let’s take a look at the teaser trailer for this new show coming to AMC.
The Premise: “NOS4A2 follows Victoria “Vic” McQueen, a young working-class artist who discovers that she has a supernatural ability to track the seemingly immortal Charlie Manx. Manx feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland — a twisted Christmas Village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Vic must strive to defeat Manx and rescue his victims — without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.” (c/o Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This looked interesting enough for me to program my DVR for and with some of my regular shows going away this season like “Gotham”, “IZombie” and “The Big Bang Theory”, I will most certainly have room for it. Since I don’t know much else I am going to poke my more literary friends and see if someone has a novel I can breeze through before the show airs. What do you folks think about this teaser? Have you read the original book? Chime in down below and know that I will be following the updates on this series as they develop. See you next time.
