TV Series Review: The Uncanny Counter, season 1 Netflix

The Uncanny Counter, season 1 
Premiere Date: Nov 28, 2020
Genre: Science Fiction & Fantasy, mystery, thriller
Network: Netflix
16 episodes
Cast: Suk-hwan Ahn, Yoon-young Choi, Se-Jeong Kim, Hye-ran Yeom, Joon-sang Yoo, Jang Cheol Jung
A South Korean television series based on the Daum webtoon Amazing Rumor by Jang Yi.

The Uncanny Counter tells the story of demon hunters called "Counters" who have come to the earth posing as employees of a noodle restaurant in order to capture evil spirits that have returned to earth in pursuit of eternal life. They each have their own special abilities.

My husband and I gave this K-drama (Korean drama) a try because it had a supernatural theme. I've watched some Korean movies and animation and don't have a problem with subtitles. My husband despises subtitles and won't watch anything with them...until... The trailer for The Uncanny Counter was just too good (lots of action) for my husband not to try it, LOL.

We both got sucked into this show quickly. There is a complicated and interesting plot. There is plenty of silly humor sprinkled in with the drama/horror elements. The evil spirits are truly bad and cruel and these four diverse (in ages) characters will have you invested. And there are a lot of fighting sequences between the heroes and the evil spirits who possess humans.
Unlike most Netflix series, The Uncanny Counter releases two episodes each week. Episodes 8 and 9 come out on Dec 19 and 20. There are 16 total episodes. So you can catch up.
