Locke and Key is something somewhat new to Netflix that someone suggested I watch. It’s based on some comic books and both Fox and Hulu had pilots based on the source material but Netflix had been the first to make the show real and complete.
The show starts with a family moving to Massachusetts after their father was murdered by a crazed family friend in Seattle. The Lockes move to their father’s family home. But there is something awfully strange about the house.
The one who notices first is Bode, the youngest child. He can hear the magic in the house speak to him. He finds magical keys that do amazing things and the house has countless examples of such keys.
Bode soon meets the “lady in the well.” She offers the young Locke friendship but there is something dark about her. She has her eyes on the keys but there is one she wants above all the others. And she’ll stop at nothing to get it.
Overall Locke and Key is a neat albeit imperfect show. I like the idea of the keys but the show has a lot of basic logic missing everywhere. That being said, when season 2 arrives eventually I will see it though maybe not right away.
