X was the real YIt turns out kids were the real The Beast.

This is my favourite Halloween thing.

That isn't hyperbole. It is one of the few things that I would recommend without reservations and without needing to consider the audience first. It is brings-me-to-tears good.

[NB It's TV PG, and might be too scary for young children]

This was my 4th watch, and I still saw new things in it. It's funny, and beautiful, and heartwarming.

It's a 5-episode TV miniseries, and I think it holds up equally well watched in one sitting or over the course of a week or two.
