Amazon PrimeVideo has released a new show, just in time for Halloween–and it’s perfect for the season. Truth Seekers, starring buddy comedy duo Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, is all about paranormal investigation with a goofy twist. Clocking in at only eight episodes, it’s a great weekend binge if you’re for a spooky time to distract yourself from the lack of costume parties and trick-or-treat this year.
The set up is relatively simple. Frost plays Gus Roberts, a self-serious and deeply eccentric broadband internet technician who moonlights as a paranormal investigator with a YouTube channel. Roberts is one of the best at his boring day job, so he’s tasked with training up a rookie, Elton John (Samson Kayo)–and yes, the name is the punchline of more than a couple very funny jokes. Elton, as it turns out, is both a coward and a person who is genuinely sensitive to paranormal occurrences, so Gus quickly ropes him into his investigative side-hustle, despite Elton’s protests.
