Tv Season Info

A light-hearted, endearing modern fable set in Long Beach, California about a disarmingly optimistic local ex-surfer, Dud (Russell), who's drifting after the death of his father and collapse of the family business. Dud serendipitously finds himself on the doorstep of a rundown fraternal lodge, where a middle-aged plumbing salesman and "Luminous Knight" of the order, Ernie (Jennings), welcomes him into a world of cheap beer, easy camaraderie and the promise of Alchemical mysteries that may -- or may not -- put Dud on the path to recover the idyllic life he's lost.

There's just not enough. Stories like this need to provide more heart more often.

In its oddly gentle, gently odd and entirely distinct way, Lodge 49 makes as good an argument for the existence of a kind of shabby everyday magic as you'll find anywhere.

I'm down for sharing a cheap beer with Dud and Liz every now and then, but a show needs more than likable characters to catch an audience in 2018.

There are so many pleasures in Lodge 49 that it's impossible to list them all here.

It's a poignant portrayal of the way grief is, to some extent, a form of staying in touch with the lost one.

Lodge 49 is a wave well worth riding.

It never quite comes together.

Dec 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Lodge 49's appeal is actually pretty straightforward: It is filled with characters that you care about, who feel less like types than flawed, three-dimensional humans.

It's sort of, uh, Cheers meets Twin Peaks amid the ruins of late capitalism.

Sep 4, 2018 | Full Review…

The meditative dramedy moves at a stoner's pace, but after a few episodes Lodge 49's subtle observations about capitalist alienation waft to the surface.
