Why It’s Underrated: If you were looking to sink into a new show this year and escape into a world completely unlike our own, there were lots of option to add to your watch list. In fact, many of them were available to stream on Netflix. But you missed some of the best and most underrated titles, like the supernatural fantasy series Locke & Key.

Based on Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez’s comic book series of the same name, Locke & Key centers on the Locke family, who moves from Seattle to Massachusetts into their late father’s family home. The three children — Tyler (Connor Jessup), Kinsey (Emilia Jones) and Bode (Jackson Robert Scott) — suddenly find a number of mysterious keys throughout the house, which have the power to unlock mysterious doors. But the trio must keep the keys from a demonic entity.

Locke & Key first premiered on Netflix in February 2020 and earned mixed reception from critics. However, the show’s exploration of heavy themes in tandem with its employment of the horror genre were praise. Released ahead of various quarantine-boosted hit binge-watches, Locke & Key missed a mainstream connection, while still amassing its own loyal fanbase. Underrated or not, the fan-favorite will return for season 2 next year and hopefully unlock lots of new fans.
