Character Brooke Maddox is the fully fleshed out blonde archetype we've all wanted since Laurie's BFF died way too prematurely in John Carpenter's original "Halloween."
Just like Scream's Drew Barrymore and Psycho's Janet Leigh, the series isn't afraid to kill its supposed star in the first act.
Will and Jake (played by Connor Weil and Tom Maden) are the less annoying and more relatable versions of Billy Loomis and Stu Macher.
The series will often introduce bizarro supernatural moments that would rival any of our favorite sequences from "A Nightmare on Elm Street" or "Candyman."
The show makes leaps and bounds in its meta-ness, even besting some of the seemingly forced lines from "Scream 4."
"Scream 2" once made us believe that minority characters would be safe in future incarnations of the franchise due to our current PC climate. (But plot twist: No one is)
Unlike rival show "Scream Queens," the cliffhangers are sophisticatedly used to move the plot forward, often creating even better character development along the way.
Is there more than one killer? Did she even die? Why is the final showdown always on a lake right before dawn? So many questions!!
