I'm surprised no one has thrown this one up yet.

I personally think it's flawless. It has some genuine scares; even though most of them are jump scares, and itís also a great dramatic piece. The cast is fantastic, the writing is top notch.

One thing that really stuck out for me was the cinematography. I  think everyone involved did an amazing job.

The overarching story is excellent, with characters you can really get behind.

The finale wraps everything up quite nicely. I was left completely satisfied.

I really canít say anything bad about it.

Top of the watch list for anyone that hasnít seen it.

It does look good and there's a good vibe and atmosphere, and perhaps it was cause I was falling asleep, but I found it a bit slow and not a lot happening. Maybe I should give episode 2 another look.

I'm waiting for another Hush or Gerald's game.

Ozark taught me (Episode 1) to not switch off too soon. Husband went to bed and I told him the next day how it really ramped up from a pedestrian start.

So, maybe I'll give this another shot...

P.S. Jump scares get a bad rap these days but I'm a sucker for them.

Definitely worth sticking with. It is a bit of a slow burn in the beginning, but it's all going somewhere.

I personally don't think Hush and especially not Gerald's Game are in the same league as this.

Will start on this one soon, as I too thought it looked good.

Thanks for the review, Warren.

Hype is volcanic for this one. I haven't had the time to check it out. Sounds like it might be worth a look.

Not to sound skeptical, but since when did Mike Flanagan become such a household name in horror? He gets name-dropped like crazy now and seemingly out of the blue (yet somehow not?). He's never been on my radar anyway, and I had to look him up to see what films he's done. I've only seen Gerald's Game (which I enjoyed but mostly due to King's story) and Oculus, which was okay. I had two friends tell me about Hush, which they both said was horrendous. As such, was surprised to see that one pop up in his filmography.

Iíve just started watching this last night.  So far so good.  Only started because Stephen King gave it such high praise.

I started last night and was not impressed, surprisingly.

Now, it was late, I was tired, and it was in bed, so maybe I need to start over and pay more attention.

I think so. There is quite a lot going on, and it is a bit of a slow burn in the beginning. I do think itís well worth sticking with and needs to be enjoyed in it entirety.

Struggling to get through it only sticking with it because of the Missus
I think the episodes are hit and miss.

It starts off very slow then it picked up at Theo's perspective but I I'm at Episode 7  waiting for it to all the in

I think this show is a masterclass. Especially when it comes empathy. Even the characters I was fully aware were douchebags - STEVE - were brimming with it. If you want viewers to feel your character's pain, this is the show to take notes.

This is easily the best original show on Netflix and that says something. It's better than Narcos or Michael HeisenBluth or the MCU shows. I became swollen with emotion after the show was over like nothing I've seen in a long time. I'm watching it a second time and not a single frame disengages me. Top tier writing from beginning to end.

I've watched two eps so far and I'm bored stiff. I absolutely hate the editing where we jump between the present and past all the time. So far, there's nothing in this that will keep me watching. Also, everyone looks so similar. Drab and boring. My take.

Totally agree!  I wanted to love this, but it's so dull and boring and confusing, as well.

I may try again, but doubtful.

It's not really confusing at all in terms of the bigger picture, which is the point. It all comes together in the end, everything makes sense, and no important questions go unanswered.

As I said before, this needs to be enjoyed in its entirety, you need the whole picture. Regardless, the people not enjoying this are in the minority.

Never going to please everyone, but I think this comes pretty close.

Well what are you going to do. Not everyone will love a great show.
