Todd and the Book of Pure Evil

Over here in Canadaland we haven't really contributed too much to the world of metal. It's unfortunate but it's true. That's why when something metal-themed comes out it's so exciting.

Introducing Todd and the Book of Pure Evil. A small independent show from none other than Canada! It follows Todd (obviously), a high school student concerned with stopping the Book of Pure Evil (how creative!) which makes you wishes come true, albeit with an evil twist. He is joined by high school archetypes like Chris, his idiot friend, Jenny, the attractive popular girl, Hannah, the nerdy girl, and Atticus Murphy Jr., the up-to-no-good guidance counsellor. The great part though is that Todd is a metalhead. This means that the town they live in is secretly ruled by Satanists, people die in horribly gruesome ways and the soundtrack is almost entirely metal. Mix it in with a hilarious script and you've got a great show.

Todd and the Book of Pure Evil is mostly shown in Canada on Space and Comedy, but has also been picked up by American and UK networks (Fearnet and SyFy, respectively). That means that you could be watching it right now! Or if you don't feel like turning on the TV (who does?) you can watch it online here. Don't worry, it's perfectly legal.

Look how evil that book is!
Unfortunately, the show was not renewed for a third season. It is currently in TV purgatory, with a third season being written and filmed, but no one to show it. Go to their website for ways that you can help renew the show:
