The new fantasy drama series Sweet Tooth (now streaming on Netflix) is a mix of many different things: viral pandemics, surviving in the wilderness, anthropomorphic children, unlikely found families, genetic experiments gone wrong, and civilization attempting to rebuild itself after an apocalypse. Adapted from the comic books by Jeff Lemire, the show is bittersweet, poignant, and very endearing.
