The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell Plot: What is it about?
The show is about Christine McConnell who has always been a unique child. She has always stood out for being different than the others and having different taste. Christine lives in a mansion filled with puppet monsters who are her friends, and she takes care of them. She enjoys making mouthwatering and frightening creations. She also has a lover who is a serial killer, and the sitcom revolves around an unusual lifestyle of living in a haunted mansion and caring for the monsters, being in love with a serial killer, annoying neighbours and a cousin who wants to kill you so they can inherit the family money. Some of Christine’s famous creations are gingerbread haunted houses, caramel spiders and bones made of pretzel sticks, peanut butter, and white chocolate.
When asked Christine about her take on food she said, “I think the fascination with food and art is sort of cyclical, I think in the ’70s people got really fun with food, and then it waned, and [now] I think we’re in the middle of a big movement back to that and I sort of latched onto it because I’m a huge fanatic of deserts and things like that and I turned it into this really fun medium.” When speaking about her curious creations on the show she explains, “The projects in Curious Creations are playful for people to do at home. If there’s a disaster, it’s usually funny, as opposed to more intense art where you’re sculpting something out of stone, and it’s not quite as attainable for everybody.” The show is an unlikely combination of a food program and a goth show, but somehow they manage to make it work.
