Netflix Pick: The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell

Curious Creations isn’t your standard baking show from Food Network, it’s a Jim Henson Company produced goth cooking show.

Wickedly talented baker and artist, Christine McConnell welcomes you into her terrifyingly delicious home to create delectable confections and hauntingly disturbing decor with the help of her colorful collection of creatures.

McConnell walks viewers through spooky projects that range from simple to insanely complex, while her monstrous houseguests provide distractions and snarky commentary. The latter element gives the show a Mystery Science Theater 3000 vibe, a feeling strengthened by the show’s storylines, some of which are self-contained and some of which stretch over the entire six-episode run. Christine has a dinner date with a man who may or may not be a serial killer. A meddlesome cousin swings by in search of a missing inheritance. Her housemates kidnap and prepare to torture a bothersome neighbor.
