Editorial Reviews

Imagine, if you will, a book of awesome power. A book that will make your deepest,
darkest desires come true... but at a horrifying cost. This is The Book of Pure Evil, and
it s loose in Crowley High. Thankfully, one horny teenager stands between The Book of
Pure Evil and the end of the world as we know it. His name is Todd. And he will save
our asses - whether he likes it or not.

By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on February 23, 2012
Format: DVD
I tend to reserve my five star ratings for only the programs that I think represent the best of television. So, in many ways, my glowing review of "Todd & The Book of Pure Evil" may seem uncharacteristic. I mean, really, it's hardly like this show serves the same purposes as "Mad Men" or "Masterpiece Theater." But this program, with unabashed eccentricity, does exactly what it intends. And by embracing its lunacy wholeheartedly, the show is an unqualified success. This gonzo comedy/horror mash-up from Canada is an unapologetic homage to bad monster movie mayhem. It embraces its intentional badness in such a refreshing way, though, it is almost impossible to resist (if you're into that kind of thing). Combining cheesy effects, ridiculous situations, and over-the-top characterizations while filtering everything through a stoner mentality, this is a show that screams to be discovered by a wider audience and achieve the cult status that seems inevitable.

The program gets off to a quick start as our titular hero Todd (Alex House) discovers the existence of mystical book that has the power to make your dreams come true. But as its powers raise Todd to Rock Star God status, it appears that an ulterior evil is really at work to destroy the school. Subsequent episodes has Todd with a band of misfits pursue the book through a series of misadventures (usually accompanied by a monster or two). Among Todd's cohorts are the school's popular girl (Maggie Castle, on whom Todd is crushing), Todd's witless and one-armed best friend (Bill Turnbull), and a brainy science geek (Melanie Leishman, who is crushing on Todd).

Todd & The Book of Pure Evil is a work of pure genius.

It's like Degrassi: The Next Generation meets Evil Dead 2 - a dirty, bloody, heavy-metal stoner, anti-sentimental, satanic-battling, supernatural high-school comedy!

Todd & The Book of Pure Evil is a cool show. Some episodes are better than others, though. My favorite episodes are Rock N' Roll Zombies Know Best (I am a fan of zombies, after all), Gay Day, Monster Fat, Big Bad Baby, and The Phantom Of Crowley High (which is a musical episode). The only extra I've watched so far on the DVD, is the short film that inspired the show. And thank goodness that the show went in a total different direction, because the short film was way too serious. I prefer the comedy and silliness that the show provides. Bring on Season 2 on DVD!

Being someone who grew up on the Evil Dead series, I can't remember when another TV show gave me the same level of enjoyment that this one does. It is such a shame it is getting cancelled just when popularity was starting to peak here in the States. Sign the petition to save Todd and the Book of Pure Evil!

Fresh and fun and evil in an Eric Cartman sort of way combined with Bill & Ted's Adventure - but also see my season 2 review. They canned it and no season 3. This first season was the best for story and humor and twists and is as off the wall as the cover art suggests. Season 2 was a little less funky but still good - liked them both to the point if a season 3 was done, I'd for sure have gotten it.

One of the best...most dingbat shows ever!!!...And in this day and age...we could use a little more dingbat!! No political agenda...no subliminal messages... just a sharp..funny...bloody mess! It's a real shame there were only 2 seasons. I guess the only lesson to be learned from Todd and the book of pure evil is...be careful what you wish for..."LOOSER"!!!!

"Maybe he's the one the Prophecy Speaks of." "Tell us you've investigated this boy?!"

"He's a student at Crowley High, So he is High School Age, which at Crowley High could be anywhere between 14 and 25
He is a Male, His Name is Todd... Smith. No Middle Name... That I know of."

Todd wants to be a rock star, and in episode one, he is the first to come across the Book of Evil. Todd turns the book into a mean looking guitar, and becomes the most shredding awesome guitar player ever. So much soo, his rock started making people bleed from every hole. His friends come to stop him, but can't get the book before it mystically flies away like some kinda book bird.

The rest of this season, the book finds someone who is troubled finds the book, and it helps them until it turns out to be more of a curse.

If you liked Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny, Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, Idle Hands, ect... then check this show out!

Half decent show.
I'd never seen or heard of it, but it was a recommendation based off of "Reaper" (excellent buy)

The show is a little immature, and the actors have some cheesey roles, but all in all, it makes for a pretty fun experience.

The story line begins to involve you regardless if you want to get into it or not.
Give yourself until at least mid-season of season 1, before you decide to thrash this selection!

It's good for what it is!
