Stan Against Evil is a comedic horror television series that aired on IFC from 2016 to 2018. Created by Dana Gould, the show takes place in the fictional town of Willard's Mill in New Hampshire and follows the adventures of Stan Miller, a former sheriff of the town, who is forced out of retirement to battle the demons and supernatural creatures that haunt the town. It is a blend of horror and humor, which makes it a unique viewing experience.

The show's main character, Stan Miller, is played by John C. McGinley, who is best known for his role as Dr. Cox in the popular medical comedy Scrubs. Stan is an angry, grumpy, and sarcastic man who is not easy to get along with. He is a widower and a recent retiree from his post as the sheriff in the town. However, he is still the only one with the knowledge and experience to fight the supernatural beings that plague the town, and so he is forced back into action.

Janet Varney portrays Stan's counterpart, a newly appointed sheriff named Evie Barret. Evie is a sharp-witted and tough-minded character who quickly becomes Stan's ally in the fight against evil. She is strong, independent, and sassy, making her the perfect counterpart to Stan's gruffness. Together, they make a formidable team battling the forces of darkness.

Deborah Baker Jr. plays Denise Miller, Stan's daughter. Denise, unlike her father, is mild-mannered and kind-hearted. She works at the local library and is the voice of reason in the series. She provides an excellent balance to the bickering between her father and Evie, bringing some much-needed calmness to Willard's Mill.

The show features various horror references, including appearances from classic horror movie creatures such as witches, zombies, and ghosts. The creatures are depicted in a way that is both entertaining and scary, and the practical effects lend authenticity to the show's horror elements. However, the show is not excessively gory, and most of the violence and gore is played for laughs.

The comedy in Stan Against Evil is primarily derived from the interactions between Stan, Evie, and Denise. The three main characters have excellent chemistry, making their banter and one-liners hilarious. Additionally, the show is also very self-aware, and it pokes fun at the horror genre itself. The humor is clever and witty, making it a perfect fit for viewers who prefer their horror with a side of comedy.

Stan Against Evil's first two seasons follow a monster of the week structure, where each episode features a different supernatural creature that the characters need to defeat. However, the show delves into a more overarching plot in its third season, tying together the events of the previous seasons and introducing new villains and allies for the main characters.

In conclusion, Stan Against Evil is a highly entertaining horror-comedy series that is enjoyable for fans of both genres. The show's combination of humor and horror provides viewers with a unique viewing experience, and the chemistry between the three main characters is fantastic. It's a show that doesn't take itself too seriously, but that doesn't detract from its ability to scare or entertain.

Stan Against Evil is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (25 episodes). The series first aired on November 2, 2016.
