In Secrets of Sulphur Springs, Griffin Campbell (played by Preston Campbell) moves into an abandoned hotel where a girl went missing decades ago. There, Griffin and his new friend Harper Dunn (Kyliegh Curran; yes that's how her first name is supposed to be spelled) discover a big secret which causes them to investigate the disappearance.
This isn't my age demographic, but the commercials made me curious. It had a sort of uncanny feel to it that Watcher in the Woods had. Turns out the show isn't that spooky. The commercials and parts of Sulphur Springs try to imply things get eerie, but they really don't. Goosebumps or Are You Afraid of the Dark this isn't. But that's alright, this is a mystery-heavy paranormal kids show and you just don't see those that much. So, yeah if you were found of WitW, then you may like this.
The story is pretty simple overall, but the show does a surprisingly good job of pacing things. That being said, Griffin's two younger siblings and their subplot of investigating the hotel's haunting feels just like filler and don't add much. (On the other hand, Harper's brother Topher (Bryant Tardy) is one of the better parts of the show and is a sibling that works. He provides decent semi-comic relief and never overstays his welcome.)
What's refreshing is that the main characters make smart decisions. This involves a gimmick, which I won't spoil, that's been done a lot, and it's nice to see the writers say "yeah, we've all been here before and we're not gonna waste your time with the characters wrapping their heads around it."
There is also a stern, overbearing father character in this who is painfully one-note, but he's not in this that much.
The child acting in this is pretty good all around. Campbell and Curran do their roles well, I wish them the best in their future careers.
Overall, I recommend this show for your kids. It's just well done.
