For the love of all that is holy, watch Chucky!

DirtyOldTown is flying the flag for this one, and I have been absolutely in love with it after crushing the first season in a couple of days and am now week-to-week with the second season. I am mystified as to why it's not a Fanfare mainstay: it's 2SLGBTQIA+ positive, hilarious, gory, weird as hell, has Devon Sawa in multiple roles getting killed various ways, pushes the franchise beyond the bounds of credulity and possibly sanity, and is just an absolute gem in terms of being exactly what it is in a way that very little TV gets to be any more.
