The third season of Syfy's horror anthology Channel Zero wrapped up last night, bringing a cathartic end to the wild ride that was Butcher's Block. The show's most artistically ambitious season to date was also its most challenging, with surreal elements weaving through its plot and its visuals. It was all very weird... but it also totally worked.
