Television expert Bob Thompson spoke with Boston Public Radio on Monday about HBO's latest television series, "Lovecraft Country," about a road trip throughout 1950s Jim Crow America. "Jordan Peele is one of the executive producers, so it's got a sort of 'Get Out' feel to it. It turns into quite a monster movie with some pretty serious computer generated graphics," Thompson said.

Bob Thompson is a founding director of the Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture and a trustee professor of television and popular culture at Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.
