American Gothic was a horror/ drama series that took place during the later part of the 1980s. The series took place in a fictional South Carolina town that was called, Trinity. This was a very strange town because people in the town were not what they appeared to be; especially Sheriff Lucas Buck. His son, Caleb Temple, was not brought up by Lucas but by a man named Gage. Things began to heat up in this series when the local doctor, Matt Crower, begins to feel dubious and curious when Sheriff Buck shows a great deal of interest in his supposed son, Caleb. Luckily for Caleb, Caleb's son, Gail Emory comes to town after she finds out that Sheriff Buck wants to control and manipulate Caleb as much as he can. At first she does her best to protect Caleb until she falls in love with Buck. Caleb's school teacher, Miss Selena Coombs, becomes jealous when Buck shows interest in Gail Emory. Caleb also has a dead sister, Merlyn, who is also an angel and who goes out of her way to protect Caleb. Meryln's presence throughout the series added mystery and suspense to the story. With some many interactions, jealousy, this series became very popular because no one knew what would happen from one week to the next. The series location in South Carolina gave the series a southern and mysterious touch and also gave beauty and secrecy to the production. Many found the story and the actors on the series engaging and very interesting.
