Secrets Of Sulphur Springs has finally aired on Disney and we have been able to watch the first three episodes of this eleven episode series and our initial thoughts as positive. From what we know now this is a supernatural drama time travel show, but it does give us a light horror or spooky feel as well with what we know so far. There is a very Locke and Key (Netflix) for younger kids vibe going on here and that is a good thing. Consider Secrets Of Sulphur Springs and introduction to this genre and it does that in a wonderful way.
Spoilers for Secrets Of Sulphur Springs episodes “Once Upon A Time,” “Somewhere In Time,” and “Straight Outta Time” below.
Time Travel is tricky stuff and it can work in totally different ways based on what movie and story you are watching. What Secrets Of Sulphur Springs does really well here is ask and answer a bunch of time travel questions you might have in the story itself. It gives us a lot of information in the first three episodes of the show on the time travel part, but I love that Griffin Campbell does his own sort of test on how the time travel is working, like with the luggage tag.
Secrets Of Sulphur Springs is also just spooky enough to be fun for the kids and adults alike. We have a scaredy-cat in the house and this was just the perfect level of spooky and thrilling to keep her interested but still able to sleep in her own bed. The show also created all sorts of family discussions as we know that there is something fishy going on with Ben and Jess and we are really looking forward to seeing what happens and when the truth comes out. The fact that we are going to get an eleven episode self-contained story also makes us very happy as this is one show that we really need to see the ending to. So far the show is turning out to be exactly what we had hoped for and expected and we could not be any happier.
