Adapted from the novel by Charlaine Harris, Midnight, Texas is now a television series on NBC with a town full of supernatural characters dealing with an impending apocalypse. Plus, a talking cat with a Texan accent.
“Welcome back to a place where being normal is strange and only outsiders fit in. Based on the best-selling book series by Charlaine Harris (author of the novels that inspired “True Blood”), comes a journey into a remote Texas town where nothing is what it seems. Home to a psychic, vampire, witch, angel and hitwoman, Midnight is a mysterious safe haven for those who are different – a perfect place for anyone looking to hide from the outside world. After defeating the demon Colconnar the residents of Midnight try to go back to life as it was, but the balance they thought they were regaining becomes threatened with the opening of a mysterious new hotel in town…”
Season One Overview
The first season of Midnight, Texas was just full of….a lot of stuff! Looking back, it’s difficult for me to unlock the memories to summarize because the need to know what happens next is overriding it!
The first thought I have about the show is how much I absolutely love the community of Midnight. The town is a place for those who have not found a place elsewhere. Here, in a town full with neighbors that are: demons, assassins, witches, or angels; they create a community where they help one another and have picnics. Each person deals with the others’ quirks and accept one another’s difference. There is an unspoken code of not harming one another and to protect the community as a whole. This inclusiveness of the town sounds like heaven for those who have walked on the margin of society. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that there are ridiculously hot scenes and thrilling moments.
There were definitely some parts that had me diving behind a pillow. With a town of such paranormal characters, a stalker demon, and a painting that foretells the apocalypse, things were bound to get really scary!
During San Diego Comic Con, along with the announcement of a second season, there was also the announcement of three new residents to Midnight, Texas. At the end of the first season, we were already introduced to Kai and Patience Lucero (played by Nestor Carbonell and Jaime Ray Newman respectively) as the owners of the new hotel. It was surprise to the Midnight residents and there is already a high level of suspicion. There will also be Walker Chisum (played by Josh Kelly) who will be an openly gay demon hunter with a strong connection to Joe.
I cannot wait to go back to Midnight! The series will be back on Friday, Oct. 26 at 9 p.m. on NBC.
