That escalated quickly. Looks interesting!
This looks great
Let me know when Cthulhu shows up.
2 eps in and i'm hooked, hell i was in 100% the 1st 5 minutes of ep 1.
Here you go.
Wife and I watched the first two eps and really enjoyed it. It feels like a mash up between (HBO's) Watchmen, Preacher, and Stranger Things, shows that we really like too. The second episode really felt like a season finale to us but nope, the story keeps on trucking with our heroes going back home after all the strange things they've experienced and have to process it all.
Anyone else feel sorry for Uncle George? He was such a good guy and his death was definitely broadcasted/foreshadowed what with how good a person he was.
I'm intrigued that it got lampshaded with the revelation that he had an affair with Tic's mother, and that his brother knew and had forgiven him prior to George's death but it does leave the question open as to whether or not he was truly Tic's father, after all. Even seemingly good men make mistakes and had skeletons in their closets.
I'm also sure we haven't seen the last of Ms. Braithwaite and her friend/servant either as they weren't present when the senior Braithwaite and his cultists were turned to stone/ash and the mansion collapsed. No body, no death.
Looking forward to the rest of the season!
Yeah, that was sad but i saw it coming i agree that it felt like a season finale. i feel both eps felt that way, i can't wait to see more.
Are the monsters in this more ghost/the ring or more zombie/aliens
The monsters in this are white people.
no there are regular monsters also.
nope, i knew what you were saying.
I just finished reading the book.
Definitely looking forward to watching the TV show now to see how it compares.
Should this be in blue text?
No, it's literally the point. Lovecraft was a racist asshole and the show like the novel it's based off of uses his writing as a framework to show what dicks white racists are. The supernatural elements are just allegorical emphasis to highlight the true monstrosity.
Scenes like the Sundown Town sheriff were very suspenseful.
You uhhhh, never read any lovecraft huh?
I'm not entirely convinced the supernatural elements are strictly relegated to allegory. Like what is the allegory of the weird cult? It's pointedly not the klan, the leader makes that plenty clear. What's the allegory of the mooncalf beasts?
You can extend this to lovecraft's creations too; shoggoths are clearly his (hateful) allegory of urbanised black folk entering industrial and technologised labour. But say the cats from ulthar arent really an allegory for anything, they just weird ass cats.
I think it's important to point this out because there are times when lovecraft say wanted to write allegory, didn't want to write allegory and failed, and didn't want to write allegory and succeeded.
Nope, from trailers looks to have monsters or supernatural elements and dont want to watch it if it does have supernatural elements.
