There is a reason some stories aren't told and HIM is a good example of this. The name itself conjures up images of a kind of demonic force of infamy, but instead it is a very personal tale about a teenager going through a tough family life.

I believe the title and tone are very purposeful, they make you think this is going to go down like Chronicle or Carrie, but in the end nothing really happens, the point being that people aren't monsters in real life. While this is actually a good message it doesn't make for the most compelling television, which is probably why even as a mini-series the show is pretty short at three episodes.

Overall I can see HIM appealing to people who have been in similar situations emotionally, but in terms of solid entertainment, especially if you are expecting anything horrific, I would say you will probably be disappointed. There are some solid parts to this mini-series but when you are trying to prove a point by not delivering on something that is heavily implied by title and tone it is hard not to disappoint.
