Synopsis: Anubis House is the home of nine students attending a British boarding school. When one of the students mysteriously disappears the same day an American girl named Nina moves into the house, the students begin to suspect foul play. A woman who lived in the house long ago tells Nina that the house has a strange past linked to Egyptian mythology and Nina decides to enlist the help of her fellow housemates in solving the mystery. The students form a group called “Sinuba” dedicated to solving the mystery of the house.
I have to admit, I came in at the end of this series, and was completely confused. But after watching the end of the second season, I went back and caught up, and now I am completely hooked! The show is a cross somewhere between a teen soap opera and a mystery, which by itself isn’t enough to keep me watching, but the characters have great charisma and the writing is smart. There is always going to be another facet of the mystery house and something else for Sinuba to uncover, I just have to hope that the mysteries and the clues do not start down the path toward ridiculousness combined with the numerous off-and-on relationships between the characters. House of Anubis also originated inBritain, and I’m a sucker for British TV shows. The show recently wrapped up its second season and the studio has announced a third season is in the works.
