#Horror TV: Channel Zero: Butcher’s Block

If you haven't heard of Channel Zero on SYFY channel, you should go check it out. The first season, Candle Cove, was creepy fun as a childhood terror refused to be forgotten, as a lost brother was found. The second season, No-End House, dove into the pain of the past, of how...just maybe...we'd rather live without it. The third season, Channel Zero: Butcher's Block has just finished, the final episode played last night. I haven't watched it yet...but I will, then return to share my thoughts.

The Autons first appeared in the episode "Spearhead from Space" in 1970, meeting the Third Doctor played by Jon Pertwee. Classified as robots, they serve the Nestene Consciouness, an alien entity bent on conquering the Earth. The Autons are anything plastic, given life by Nestene energy. Imagine walking down a street when the mannequins in a store window suddenly move,[...]
