Avsnitt

  • The story of the cook and the warlock, from 1001 Nights, where you see how a hot tub can change your entire life's course.

    The creature is the Murghi-i-adami, a buff peacock with a lot to say.

  • An adaptation of a Swiss horror novella "The Black Spider" by author Jeremias Gotthelf (AKA Albert Bitzius), about a town with a knight problem, so they make a deal with a very suspicious man to help them in their time of need.

  • A prince, chased by seven evil wizard roommates, seeks help from a hermit. This leads him on a journey of discovery that entails ghosts, mythological creature kidnapping, and many, many blisters.

    The creature is the Lioumere, and you'll see that clowns aren't just for children's birthday parties! They're also for doing dental work on dangerous ogresses.

  • Two stories from Eastern Europe where we see why mythological water monsters aren't a great way to discipline your kids. On the second, if a wizard is mumbling something outside your house, you're in for a bad time unless you talk to a witch.

    The creatures are the Devil's Dandy Dogs! They're not dandy, not the devil's, and they're barely dogs!

  • You would think, if you're the most wanted person in Britain, you would probably want to lie low for a little while and think that the all-too-happy-to-get-kidnapped abbot with the big bags of gold strolling through Sherwood forest might be an obvious trap.

    The creature is why you don't want to eat a big meal and then go into battle.

  • Tim Miller is a famous search-and-rescuer in Dickinson, Texas, who's helped track down more than 300 missing persons. After 38 years of searching, he’s now convinced that he’s finally solved his own daughter’s murder.  In the first season of VIGILANTE, Allie Conti (New York Times, Vice) explores the human cost of Tim’s singular obsession with the case—from the people he’s falsely accused in the past, to the current girlfriend he’s put in the crosshairs of a possible serial killer. As Allie prepares to interview the suspect in person, she grapples with whether she might be the latest victim of Tim’s vigilantism.

    The creature is the Kickle Snifter! The reason why you should wash your beard! Or don't because who doesn't enjoy having a semi-parasitic friend around all the time?

  • Two stories from Norse myth. The first is about how you should just be you, even if people think you're a fool for doing so...actually, kind of especially if people think you are a fool for doing so.

    The second is about why you shouldn't go to the bathroom alone at night: Norse toilet zombies.

    The creature is the Mimick Dog, a dog that will mimic you and maybe put on plays.

    Coming to a garden near you, the creature is the Jidra, from Medieval Europe. You might think you're a fantastic gardener, what with growing a plant bigger than you are...but you might rethink that when the plant tries to eat you.

  • A story from One Thousand and One Nights of an incompetent dude, a genie that's more than happy to be used for evil, and how the best legal outcome is one that involves free honey cakes. This is also where we wrap up the framing narrative, and we see if Scheherazade's gambit, of keeping herself alive by telling her husband stories every night for the past 989 days, finally pays off.

    The creature is Irusan, the Irish king of the cats, and he is tired of listening to your terrible poetry.

    The creature is a cow's stomach with bone melting eyes! Who hates it when evil barons are evil!

  • Three stories from Japan about love gone wrong. On the first, the fairest youth in all the land is set to marry the daughter of a rich noble. The problem? His father kind of oversold his looks... On the second, we'll see why moths and other nighttime bugs go toward the light, and on the third, a lovelorn samurai meets a woman from his past he thought was long gone.

    The creature just wants you to chill out and stop trying to kill its friends...or else it will make you swell up in horrifying and painful places.

  • Two stories of King David's magic mirror. One actually involves a folklore version of the Biblical king facing off against an enemy from his past...and maybe turning into a balloon? The second involves a rabbi, a murderous sorcerer, and a magic battle dinner party.

    The creature is what happens when you stay too long as a vampire. You turn into what's basically an angry George Costanza with seven goat tails.

  • Heidrek the wise...was not actually all that wise. He took ownership of a cursed sword for one. He also got in a riddle battle with Odin, which is never a good idea. In fact, if you want to be wise, it might be a good idea to just look at Heidrek's life, and do the opposite.

    The creature is the Kaibaan, and he's that guy hanging out with his guitar on the quad trying to meet girls. You can spot him because he's the size of a human baby.
