We’re just giant fans of Bobcat Goldthwait’s Misfits & Monsters- the latest and most comedic addition to a long line of great anthology series that run the gamut from Alfred Hitchcock presents through Black Mirror.
This week’s episodes features Melissa Joan Hart as a helicopter mom desperate to help her indoor-kid son (Geordie Francombe) make new friends. Things go awry, of course, in ways only Bobcat Goldthwait could imagine. The episode titled The Goatman Cometh airs tonight and it’s like a much stranger Stranger Things meets Goonies and Stand By Me, as a group of boys handle the repercussions of a sleepover party that nobody really wanted to attend. It’s another home run for Bobcat, and an episode we’re ready to see spin off as its own series.
From the twisted mind of celebrated auteur Bobcat Goldthwait, truTV’s scripted anthology series Bobcat Goldthwait’s Misfits & Monsters mashes up wildly different genres to tell suspenseful stories with funny, imaginative twists. Each distinct episode turns familiar tropes inside out to create a curated and eclectic collection of stories filled with equal parts nostalgia and modern satire. Guest stars throughout the eight-episode first season include Michael Ian Black, Bridget Everett, Dave Foley, Seth Green, Melissa Joan Hart, David Koechner, Danny Pudi and more.
Tune In: Bobcat Goldthwait’s Misfits & Monsters airs Wednesdays at 10pm on truTV.
