Lockwood & Co. (Netflix)
Supernatural YA drama. Set in the UK that appears to have moved on little from the 1980s, ghosts have emerged to run rampage and ruin society, called "The Problem". They can only be effectively fought by children, who can have a talent to see or interact with them which fades with progression to adulthood. Because of course: it's YA. Lockwood runs a private supernatural investigation agency with a staff of three: himself (action hero), George (research nerd), and hires seemingly obvious future romantic interest Lucy, who is a psychic prodigy. Together they take on missions, deal with ghosts, try to get paid, and deal with rivalries from other agencies and the stern views of DEPRAC, the government department that oversees dealing with The Problem.
It's glossier than your average British fare (thanks, Netflix money!) but still a bit dingy if compared to, say, that other Netflix supernatural YA drama that also confusingly starts with "Lock" (Locke and Key). It is however much better than Locke and Key, possibly to do with being overseen by writer/director Joe Cornish, who is really rather good. It's infinitely less annoying, the characters are better written, the plot(s) are more interesting, the acting is decent. Swordplay was slightly slow and hokey, but I'll live. In fact, it's so well done, I barely noticed any of my usual animosity to YA.
