It's not often that I find a series that is not just interesting, but profound. Quite honestly, this show has changed the way I see entertainment. And, credit where credit is due, I have my mom to thank for pointing this show out to me.
So, what is Granite Flats, and why do I love it?
In a nutshell it's a Cold War era mystery/drama TV series based in a small town named, of course, Granite Flats. At first glance we might think this is a kid's spy series, but look closer and you will see that it is much, much, much more.
This show deals not only with intriguing plots, but fantastically-rounded characters who grow and change as the series progresses. It is a deep, intelligent, emotional masterpiece. If I ever meet the writer I will shake his hand firmly and say, "Well done sir, well done." I also cannot praise Christopher Lloyd and Parker Posey enough for their outstanding guest roles as two of the series' best characters.
I leave you readers with nothing more than this bit of enthusiasm which I hope will inspire you to fire up Netflix for yourselves and hopefully come to be as delighted as I was to be a part of a town called Granite Flats.
