I've been watching this show on Netflix called Granite Flats. Thought I'd suggest it here, as it is the type of show that many here at ATS might
Granite Flats is BYUtv's first original scripted television drama series. The show is set in a small Colorado town in the early 1960s
during the Cold War, and follows several of the town's citizens as mysterious and potentially dangerous circumstances arise.
The show deals with KGB moles and hidden Russian spy rings. But the main focus of the show is the MK Ultra program. It's got plenty of conspiracy and
paranoia, and also a well placed implication that the JFK assassination was the result of an MK Ultra type assassin. There's also a group of nosy
kids (think Scooby Gang) who just have to be dabbling in everything. They're kind of annoying, but as they are growing up it will be interesting to
see what happens with their character development (if the show lasts that long).
The first season and first part of the second season are a bit random, it's almost like they weren't sure where they wanted to go with the series.
But once they start getting at a focus, the show is developing nicely. I think it has potential to be pretty good. I'm on season 3 right now, and
it's definitely evolved. At first, it seemed almost childish, but the intrigue is developing.
Also worth noting, it's very... wholesome. Set in the very early 60s, there are loads of good manners, politeness, social niceties. I'm not sure
I've heard a single curse word. It's refreshing.
If you're looking for something to watch someday, maybe give it a shot.
