Life is tough when you’re a teenager; each day you experience the pains of slowly maturing into adulthood, the stomach-churning terror of high school, and the heart-rending promises of that sweet first love that blows up in your face. For Todd Smith (Alex House), a student at Crowley High and the titular reluctant hero of the Canadian comedy-horror series Todd & the Book of Pure Evil, those are the parts of his teen years he will one day look back on with fondness.
The parts he won’t are what has made this unusual series a minor cult sensation in North America and abroad. At the start of the first season Todd encountered the cursed Book of Pure Evil and tried using it to become a better guitar player and win the heart of his unrequited love Jenny Kolinsky (Maggie Castle). The plan backfired horribly and set the gawky and insecure young metalhead on the path to becoming the Pure Evil One, a dark destiny he tries desperately to avoid as he and his friends Curtis Weaver (Bill Turnbull) and Hannah B. Williams (Melanie Leishman) along with Jenny and occasionally wise and laconic school janitor Jimmy (Jason Mewes) wage weekly battles against the forces of darkness unleashed by the Book and the poor souls who dare attempt to use it to further their own ends. Without getting behind on their homework Todd and the gang encounter zombies, otherworldly monsters, and many other indescribable threats that stand between them and keeping the world safe from evil and making it to graduation in one piece.
