Does Dispatches From Elsewhere earn its quirkiness? It’s hard to tell based on the limited sample of episodes AMC made available to critics. But it’s not boring, and its optimism is appealing in and of itself. Still, it is a lot.

It’s an honest-to-god good vibes situation, across the board. In its first four episodes, the road may feel familiar and it may be a bit slow to get where it’s going, but it’s a lovely stroll all the same.

If it keeps a sharp enough focus on why its four heroes dove headfirst into the hunt — rather than on what could make it stranger — it might be able to yield some of that wild magic for its audience too.
