Recap / Welcome To Night Vale Ep 1 Pilot

"A friendly desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and mysterious lights pass overhead while we all pretend to sleep. Welcome to Night Vale."

The City Council announces the opening of a new Dog Park. They would like to remind citizens that dogs are not allowed in the dog park, and neither are citizens for that matter, as the hooded figures that habit the park are, for people's own safety, neither to be contacted nor disturbed in any way. Meanwhile, Old Woman Josie reports that she has recently been visited by a group of angels who helped her out with her daily chores, and she is offering to sell a lightbulb one of the angels changed for her, claiming that said bulb surely must have some resale value seeing how it has been touched by a divine being. A new scientist named Carlos comes to town, and his hair entrances everyone who looks at it. Teddy Williams, owner of The Desert Flower Bowling Alley and Arcade Fun Complex, discovers something strange beneath the pin-retrieval area of lane five. There is also a helpful guide to helicopter identification, and the community calendar.

Tropes present in Pilot include:

"Today's Proverb: Look to the north. Keep looking. There's nothing coming from the south."
