Storyline

Shaken by a grisly murder at the local pond and his father's bizarre, self-inflicted injury, Deputy Tommy Conroy reluctantly accepts the title of Sherriff bestowed on him by town matriarch Peggy Haplin. However Tommy's shocking discovery of Jerry Friddle's murderer forces him to keep yet another of the town's secrets with mixed emotions. Meanwhile, Henley appears to know a lot more about Haplin's dark side than she's letting on - drawing Merritt Grieves closer - but she's determined to get access to the forbidden third-floor room of the mysterious boarding house, no matter what it takes.

Mmmm, like tapioca pudding...
6 May 2010 | by Resi-NovakSee all my reviews

In the follow up episode to the pilot Happy Town delivers. There's a fair amount of character development, as there should be, and the story moves it self along. Some may argue that the story doesn't move along fast enough, but it seems to be a series that will keep at a steady pace, leaving us with many questions and anticipation walking into the next episode.

There's a couple revelations, but what makes this show so great in its early stages is the undertones and subtleties. You gotta give the actors great respect for selling these moments of "whats really going on?" Happy Town's fuse is officially lit, and i have a very strong feeling its gonna blow us all away by the time its all said and done.
