Locke & Key

Thought it deserves its own thread...

Anyone else watching? 

@Bluewolf I'm on episode 3 and already hate that bitch from the well xD Really enjoying it. Seems to have a fine balance of suspense, fantasy, humour, drama and spookiness. Are you finished with Season 1 already?

7.7 on imdb doesn't sound tooooooo promising, but I've heard a few things about it. Granted, I'm on some weird Netflix group on facebook where they even treat the Big Bang Theory like a masterpiece.

Saw the trailer and truthfully it looked like something I won’t even bother

7.7 rating is bad??? O.o 

I'm always skeptical about imdb ratings but this one sounds about right to me. An entertaining fun series, not the best of the best though. It's a bit of a niche series I suppose. If you're not into fantasy, comics and a bit of spookiness then it's probably not for you.

Not at all. Movies with that rating usually turn out to be the best. Just when it's REALLY a series that's BRILLIANT, it's usually higher. 

 

imdb is usually a pretty good indicator IMO.

Oh I wouldn't say it's BRILLIANT; just a good fun. I think people tend to have too high expectations when it comes to movies/series lately.

I am... :D

I see a bit of a mixed bag of reactions to it already on here... I don't really trust ratings all that much myself, I would rather watch something first and then make my own mind up and as you touched on already I am not sure what it is that people expect of anything they watch these days considering that just about every conceivable style and genre has already been done to death in one form or another... finding one or two that are an enjoyable 50 minutes fill time with likable characters or a fairly decent plot are what I look for...

Just finished Episode 5 and I really need someone to watch this series with... I know it's not particularly scary but I'm such a chicken when it comes to spooky things and it creeps me out at times xD Still love it though.

Is it really scary? It looks like a knock off on the Series of Unfortunate Events...

Not really xD At least not for most people I think. It's about the atmosphere and subtle little things sometimes; you know - the weird music where you know something is going to happen, creepy lighting, whispering, huge empty mysterious mansions, some creepy vibes every once in a while and the likes xD

Ah, gotcha.

I can start it tomorrow with you, then. See what the fuss is all about.

That's very nice of you but what I meant is I need someone actually being physically present on the coach with me when I watch it xD Silly; I know.

Sounds ok, I will have to have a wee look first, looks like nice little jumpy bits in it so that won't go down well with the wife as I have just shown her the trailer

I hate jump scares too and there aren't really any in the series fortunately.

Well, that will be me on catch up time now, watched 3 episodes last night with the wife and quite enjoyed them, headed off to bed and she said I will be in bed too shortly...like hell lol, I woke up about 3 ish and Liz was still watching it so she is way ahead of me and she is hooked on it.

She did the same with the series Crown, kept watching it when I was not around and in the end, I lost track of the show, we have the grandson staying the night so once he is tucked in then we will watch Locke & Key again, that's us hooked on the show.
