    Chris from Chicago Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes

    Thoroughly creepy. I'll be checking out more of this.

    The brothel keeper is... beautiful

    It couldn’t keep my attention past 20 min. A snoozer.

    What does this have to do with the original series? Some name recognition, hop along, to keep this kind of “American Horror Story” idea a float?

    Fail.

    I’m going to watch this since it’s filmed near me but I lasted about 20min as well. Looks like a show to watch early the morning with a pot of coffee in order to pay attention.

    was waiting with baited breath for your opinion as i opted not to watch last night.

    an odd choice to keep a series going when both the name and the plot were clearly meant only to be a limited series.

    the show is getting pretty positive feedback though... so i might still check it out if only just to see if i agree with your other sentiments!

    I’ll probably give it another shot pretty soon. The cinematography and sets looked good. I wasn’t in the right mood to watch it when I tried.

    The wife and I liked it. I’m glad it’s a new story, as I think they took the first story as far as it could go.

    While I quite enjoyed this it felt pretty much like a standard Japanese ghost story with pretty much stock characters. I will stick with it to see how the historical aspect plays out.

    Yeah, if they had tried to extend the first story to a second season it wouldn’t have worked at all (and I would have been pissed).

    We don’t even have AMC via cable. It was available on the AMC app for free. Probably to get us hooked. Now we’re trying to figure out how to watch the rest of the series for cheap.

    So far it's not as good as the first season, but I will keep watching.

    i sat through the first episode last night and while i didn't nod off after 20 mins like @GodShifter , i also wasn't fully enthralled.

    maybe i should have looked into the subject matter a bit more beyond the promotional blurbs. after all, i was reminded that the first episode of the first season was mostly all table setting as well, and things didn't take a hard turn until a couple episodes in. but i was game for the whole season because of how rich the source material and history was. i knew stuff would get intense and it did beyond what i could have imagined. maybe i'll stick around for season 2, at least for a couple more episodes, but out of the gate things felt a little on the nose.

    also painfully missing is the caliber of actors that the first season had. but perhaps they're planning on trying to shock us with a quick elimination of george takei's character? ;)
