Think Elvira meets Martha Stewart, with a dash of Leave it to Beaver. Yeah, figure that one out lol!
Seeing as I am ridiculously sad to have finished watching The Haunting of Hill House, I needed a little pick-me-up. I was “curious” about this one and I love baking shows, so I thought I’d give it a go.
Wickedly talented baker and artist Christine McConnell fills her home with haunting confections, creepy crafts — and wildly inappropriate creatures.
Starring: Christine McConnell, Colleen Smith, Adam Mayfield, and Dita Von Teese
This is a very er… unique show. It reminds me of those late night TV shows from the 50’s that showed monster movies, and often had talking puppets. Do you know what I’m talking about? Kind of like Elvira’s show back in the day. But it also has a very Martha Stewart type feel, if Martha Stewart lived with a bunch of monster puppets.
Christine McConnell however, is in a class of her own. She is an amazingly talented pastry chef and artist. She’s also super crafty, and all of her creations from a stunningly beautiful cake that looks like a haunted Victorian mansion, to a sexy evening gown, will simply blow your mind.
It’s very quirky, and really weird but I’m enjoying it. The cast is a motley crew of monsters, roadkill, and even a magic mirror played by beautiful pin-up, Dita Von Teese.
It’s a strange mix of cooking show and Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, but it works. The dishes and desserts she makes are indescribable, and are leaving me awe-struck. Awe-struk and hungry!
This won’t be for everyone, but it’s perfect for Halloween and it’s fun for the whole family. There are some adult innuendos here and there, but it’s good for older kids. Especially if they have an interest in cooking.
I’m only a couple of episodes in, but I think I will keep watching. It’s my brand of bizarre.
Anyone else watching?
Edit: I take it back. The first few episodes are okay to watch with your kid, but as the show progresses, it becomes increasingly more inappropriate lol, and stick around for the Halloween finale because her last major creation will blow your minds!
