Love King's novels but I'm a bit skeptical as the adaptations of his works are usually a hit or miss... From recent ones 11.22.63 was great but Under the Dome was complete rubbish. This one looks good though. Will definitely give it a go.

Nope not yet. Messiah is still my priority for now. But this one is next on "the list".

I only watched episode 1 last night but my god was I gripped straight away. The tone is absolutely perfect and it really was a brilliant opening episode. Looking forward to watching the second when I get home from work.

Second episode. All I can say is...what the fuck? And I say that in the best way possible. I’m pretty sure I know what’s happening but it’s still great tv.

First episode was fantastic. Great mystery, thrilling, a very good and eerie soundtrack, the acting was fantastic as well. If it continues like this, it deserves every plaudit coming it's way. 

Jason Bateman even directed the first episode. :o

I settled in and watched the first and second episodes last night... because I couldnt not watch a second episode after that first one oh man. This is turning out to be a fantastic watch Im already taken in right out of the gates. It reminds me a bit of True Detective season 1; kind of creepy background vibes and undertones going on the whole time.

Must admit, the third episode has thrown me a bit. A certain character is quite jarring, but I’m sure I’ll get used to it.

That's the impression I've got from the trailer and the reason why I'm reluctant to watch it...

Five episodes in. I usually love slow burn tv shows, but this one is kind of stretching my patience. Since episode 2, not a lot has happened. I’ll persist at this point, but it really needs to improve.

I've heard this one's really really good. I've not seen any of it though - and tbh, it's hard for me to see Jason Bateman as any other character other than Michael Bluth... but I think I'll have to give this a watch sooner or later.

Heh, I remember that I used to watch the Hogan Clan back in the 90s, where he played my favourite character. So I already saw him as something else before I saw Arrested Development. 

 

In all seriousness though, he's a great drama actor as well. He's great in Ozark, he was very good in this as well: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4178092/

I agree that was a very good episode. I kind of want to wait to binge it all I hate these cliff hanger episodes man.

I think I'm going to wait until the finale's out before I start this, so I can binge it properly.

Meh. Ill spoiler tag the bit thats relevant.

The shootout was good but I thought how it kind of ended was only ok. Some questions about how the thing cant die to gunshots or knives but to a rock in the head or why it would be scared of falling then? The ending kind of leaving it open but kind of makes no sense with the scratches? It was only ok for me. I thought the previous couple episodes where better.

On another note I did read a little after apparently when they originally signed to do the show with HBO it had a mini series tag as the story starts and ends with the book but before the first episode aired HBO removed that title so speculation is rife about a second season. Apparently the finale ratings (view wise) was through the roof, so who knows.
