It's a clever take on the Jim Crow era with a twist of fantasy ranging from Sci-Fi, action adventure to Horror and I love that it ties into the American history of the 50s. Overall, this is a good binge and the characters have memorable moments in their starred episodes.

I liked this series which was a cool story. I wa waiting for this to come out for a while. Episode 1 & 2 were my favorites and as the season went on it kinda had some bad episodes but the girl playing his girlfriend is insanely beautiful.
