OBITUARY: SEASON ONE
Starring: Siobhán Cullen, Michael Smiley, Ronan Raftery, Danielle Galligan, David Ganly, and Michael Hough
Creator: Ray Lawlor
Hulu’s new Irish import, Obituary, isn’t particularly necessary viewing, but if you have the right mindset and sensibilities (read: dark and quirky), there is some entertainment value to be found in this highly bingeable six-episode season. The obvious comparison is Dexter (but less self-serious), but it also has shades of After Life and the macabre humor of Wednesday, all while reminding you of just about every show you’ve seen featuring small towns filled with peculiar characters and hidden secrets. With chuckles, mystery, a delightful Siobhán Cullen, and plenty of soothing Irish accents, Obituary makes for a charming and breezy (if somewhat disposable) viewing experience.
