Unless you’re an IFC fanatic you may have missed this little gem called Stan Against Evil. Imagine Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) fighting ancient evil. Do we have your attention yet?
John C. McGinley plays Stan Miller, a retired Sheriff and curmudgeon whose wife protected him from the town’s curse (all former sheriffs have met unfortunate early ends) until her passing. Now he, and the current Sheriff Evie Barret (Janet Varney) have teamed up in order to save their quaint New England town and most importantly – survive.
Season 1 did a phenomenal job of building up characters, including supporting ones such as Stan Miller’s daughter, Denise Miller (Deborah Baker Jr.) and Deputy Leon Drinkwater (Nate Mooney), an officer who is more interested in woman and booze than he is his job. This band of oddly paired heroes somehow manage to work together (Stan Miller of course begrudgingly) to assure the safety of Willard’s Mill.
Season 1 is currently available to stream on Hulu and Amazon and we’d highly recommend it for binging so you’re ready to resolve that Season 1 cliff hanger as soon a Season 2 premieres Wednesday, November 1 at 10PM on IFC with two back-to-back episodes.
