Nominative determinism strikes Pretty Lake in Netflix’s Between

Who’d have thought that in a town called ‘Pretty Lake’, everyone over the age of 21 would end up dying of a mysterious disease, leaving only pretty people behind?

To be fair, this is actually a co-production between Netflix and Canadian TV channel CityTV, so it’s not all Netflix’s fault, although perhaps they should have seen it coming, given that CityTV is responsible for Seed and Young Drunk Punk*.

* To be fair, it’s entirely possible that Netflix watched The Booth At The End and thought that was representative of City’s output. It’s not.
