Given the focus on Dud’s tragic family history and Long Beach’s deteriorating middle class, the show’s offhanded suggestions of the supernatural can feel frivolous by comparison. Yet Lodge 49 rarely lets the specifics of that mystery crystallize before adding a new complicating development, or another strange <...> - by Slant Magazine - Season 1 [Michael Haigis]
