    Tried. Founding the pacing too slow and the show seems to lack menace? Not holding me...

  6. This is a more religious flavored take on Stephen King’s “Salem’s Lot’

    Not a surprise given that the writer-director is a King fan and also worked on a King project.

    Lacks Menace? Are you sure you are watching the same show? Plenty of menace once you get to episode 3. It's very similar pace wise to Hill House and Bly Manor, also by Flanagan.

    I binged watched it last weekend. Thought it was quite good though there was a moment in the cave where “what was that priest thinking?” crossed my mind.

    He had dementia, which had an effect on how he processed what was going on. Also note that nobody in the series ever uses the "v word." I don't think it exists in their universe

    Terrible! The dialog the characters have with each other is tediously boring (people talking about their feelings and memories in scenes longer than 10 minutes). After a while I couldn't take it any more and so I stopped watching. This has to be the worst TV show of the year. The only thing that is mildly okay is the priest, that is, when he's not giving AA meetings because then it's more uninteresting people talking about themselves.

    From the creators of The Haunting of Hill House? Well, I stopped watching that second series too.

    The Haunting of Hill House, was incredibly poor and this is a big improvement from the same creators.

    Whilst is does start off at a slow pace, it's critique on religion keeps it at least interesting, with things ramping up from episode 3.

    However the last episode can't totally live up to what came before but it's a recommended watch.

    Glad to hear it picks up because I bailed on it after the first episode. I will give it another chance as soon as I finish "Squid Game".

    We just finished it this past weekend. There are some holes in the story-some things not really explained or it is left to you to decide what it is about. It is stylish and there are some moments where the scenes are quite affecting. It is worth watching for 7 episodes.

    I'm really enjoying it (up to end of episode 5 now and loved the ending of that one). As mentioned above it's reminiscent of Stephen King's earlier novels. I like the long discussions the characters have and think the cast pull it off extremely well (so far at least). The cinematography is superb for a TV series.

    Finished Episode 4 and this thing is just moving too slow. Might have been better as a 2 hour movie? Either way I am still watching. But greatly disappointed in the ending of Episode 4, I hope something comes of it!

    Daedalus I haven't heard it all.....

    I am a couple of episodes in and like it a lot. Good characters and atmospheric filming. Interesting island location. Mysterious.

    I recommend Bly Manor! Great series. Especially if you are a Henry James fan.

    I enjoyed it pretty much the whole way through, although I did find some of the lengthy philosophical discussions to be a bit much…. Some scenes just appeared too obviously scripted which disrupted my immersion in the story.

    I liked it though, there were some interesting ideas there, and the script and acting were generally great. I can’t remember her name but that woman who worked in the church was really good, I genuinely disliked her character from the get go. I was a bit surprised that anyone would accept her leadership at the end though.

    There is one part of the story I figured out pretty early on - Sarah mentioned the priest always started at her. When she said that I figured out why.
