Surprised I haven't seen anyone mention 'Search Party' here

It's such a strange comedy...it gets unexpectedly darker and darker as the story unfolds(which might be kind of a spoiler once you've been primed to expect that, but it's a difficult show to describe/recommend). I've never seen anything like it.

Hadn't heard of it before, but I generally like things that shift from comedy to a darker story like that, ESPECIALLY when the comedic first half foreshadows the second half in retrospect.

You might like it then. It's about the search for a missing girl, so it has dark elements from the very beginning...even though I'd say the show is mostly light/comedic. But then it gets darker in unexpected ways, while somehow maintaining it's comedic elements. Weird show but I've enjoyed it so far.
