Another weird British made show with layers of the story that are never fully explained. If there is a second season I will watch it too. I want to know who Dave really is. Also I think it could have been a little less graphic and still told the story.
I watched it and I liked it. It’s not as funny as I expected (considering the cast) and Simon Pegg’s character doesn’t get much screen time. On the other hand the supernatural element has interesting stories and by the end of the series I was wishing for more episodes. Episodes are short, by the way, so the series moves pretty briskly.
Not sure if I had interest or not. I am a fan of Pegg and Frost, but I typically don’t enjoy shows about paranormal activity.
I have no problem with zombies, superheroes or singing anthropomorphic animals (things that are blatantly unreal), but the mere fact that there are people out there that believe in ghosts, I think depictions of paranormal activity bug me on a semi-conscious level. I can handle “Ghostbusters” and “Beetlejuice”, which treat the subject in a totally silly way, but based on what I can tell, “Truth Seekers” seems to treat horror aspect seriously and let the humor stand separate.
I accept this is more a foible in the way my subconscious works as opposed to a legitimate criticism.
I will check it out. I do like to watch British Television. I was a Monty Python cult member back in the '70s when in High School. It takes all kinds. I was the kid the Nerds beat up. I became a career member of the US Marine Corps infantry! Thanks nerds!
