I’m pretty committed to Evil at this point. The third episode made me question my interest through the first two, but the fourth is sort of the Rorschach test: if that one gets you, you’re probably in. Its depiction of demonic visitations is original and engaging and weird, and Michael Emerson is in it, which usually is a sign to stick around. It’s not without weak points: tonight’s 8chan bit was clumsy in execution if not intent, and apparently the Vatican doesn’t recognize sigils when it sees them? I do still wish someone would do an end-time eschatology series that wasn’t wrapped in Christian theology but I’m also not entirely convinced Evil isn’t in fact that show, but on a very slow burn to that reveal.
