Over the Garden Wall ★★★★½


For the autumn leaves and the candle-light, for the crescent moon and the creatures roaming storied paths in which they find solace; a new world is granted for two young boys, discovering that reality is merely a journey from one grove to another. As touching as it is expressive, this miniseries is carried by the wind towards the chill of a slowly setting sun; an experience lifted by levity and pummeled by adolescent awkwardness. At once a poisoned treat for the onset of Fall and a reminder of its clammy, eternal embrace. Such a cozy, wonderful thing.
