    Hello, question, Rose and I watch a lot of TV and movies. She's seen the original miniseries and we were excited about the new one (we'll binge it once they're all released) but I checked the parents guide and it says there's orgies in every Vegas scene, lol. Decapitations and blood and guts are fine for my eight year old, but I think I draw the line at orgies lol.

    Are those scenes contained to one episode, are they easily fast forwardable, is there anything else to be on the lookout for, etc. Thanks.

    Interesting that extremely violent deaths are OK for a child, but a few quick glimpses of sex scenes is verboten.

    Well, it's not "extremely violent" deaths that she's seeing, although when we saw Freaky, I definitely wasn't expecting that level of gore (which was awesome, by the way, lol). For example, we're about to start the fifth season of Walking Dead, and I have to consciously space it out so we don't get to the Negan head bashing episode (season 7 premiere) at least for a couple years. That was too brutal.

    Lol Bill you're funny, I came back to post a follow up comment but it goes hand in hand with what you're saying (and I know you're just joking) but I am what I would consider to be an expert in movies. No one watches more movies and TV than me except for professional movie reviewers. That being said, when Rose was interested in the cartoon kiddy horror stuff (Scooby Doo, Bunnicula, etc), I gradually moved her to more and more adult stuff. Never any nightmares, no difficult time distinguishing from reality, etc. We watch a lot of behind the scenes stuff also. How they did that special effect and that makeup, etc. She likes it. The only stuff I'm not introducing her to are torture porn, abuse/rape storylines, and boring-ass movies about the Yankees.

    We definitely have a lot of hangups when it comes to the subject. My wife watches a lot of foreign television and it just doesn't seem to be an issue there. We sure do love our violence here though. Our neighbors across the pond seem not to be as dependent on that.

    See, you were doing great as a conscientious, diligent and considerate parent and then.....

    "boring-ass movies about the Yankees".

    You went and fucked it all up with that comment. With that kind of grossly negligent influence she'll be bound for the pole for sure!!! Staighten up, introduce her to the New York Yankees, Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Bernie Williams and so on and she will grow up to be a fine, well rounded woman!!!

    They’re mainly in the background of the Vegas scenes of the last two episodes (5 and 6).

    My wife seems to think that reality shows like Southern Charm, MTVs The Challenge, Life After Lock Up, and the like, are acceptable to be on when our 3 and 5 year olds are in the room. IT'S NOT ACCEPTABLE!!

    This show is terrible. Everything about it. Its a shame because the cast was solid and could have done the whole thing justice but instead we got this.

    Yeah I think the miniseries handled things better at this point. This just felt rushed. Kind of surprising how the miniseries felt less condensed.

    I did like Flagg dancing, though.

    This pretty much sums up how I feel about the new series. There were few bright spots with casting, but by and large I think the Original cast was a much better ensemble cast. I really did not enjoy the new Tom Cullen, and I'm damn near outraged over Trashcan Man. He was full-bore maniac from the start with no back story, nor anything that he needs to atone to Flagg for. Whoopi didn't really bring any of her considerable talent for characters into her portrayal, so Mother Abigail was mostly a thin background character. Barely any story for Nick, and never felt why he specifically was the 'voice of Mother Abigail'. Lloyd was dumb as a box of rocks, certainly not showing any real capability for the behind the scenes running of Vegas. Harold had plenty of screen time, but I didn't get the feel of progression from love-lorn, immature boy to killer (a tool played by Flagg via Nadine). A decent final atonement, but too late in the game. I like that they change Larry's race, to avoid some of the cringe-worthy comparisons in the book that don't play well in 2021, but again, there wasn't enough progression in his back story.

    Stu was competent, but they really shortchanged his escape from Stovington. I DID enjoy JK Simmons as The General in his short scene. I can't even recall what Fran looked like at this moment, though I still have to watch the final episode, which I suspect revolves around her. Now that I'm writing all of this out, I'm beginning to wonder what they did with DOUBLE the time of the original series. Hmm, I thought I fairly enjoyed my watch of this new season, but looking back now that I'm (mostly) finished, I'm having a far easier time remembering what was bad rather than what is improved over the original series.

    Sorry for the rambling review, but I was just mentioning things as I remembered them.

    PS. I'm sure you all noticed that Harold's rejection notice was from Cemetery Dance, and the Shining carpet showed up in the casino. Those are the biggest easter eggs that I caught in the series.

    And hubby Ron, who hasn't read the book or remember the original series, was watching with me. He had tremendous difficulty following the story with the non-linear approach. I had to pause often to explain events/motivations/relationships to him.

    I prefer the line from the book but I guess “I have come to teach you to be civilized” would have offended people.

    Skarsgard definitely felt more like Flagg this episode.

    I agree with CyberGhostFace. All of a sudden Skargaard really took on how I picture Flagg. It's not enough to redeem the series, but I enjoyed this last episode: we got a little bit of the 'Original Book' ending, we got a bit of the 'Complete Book' ending, plus a few scenes that are not in the books, but completely in line with it all.

    Well, Flagg is nothing if not courteous (he's an antichrist, not a barbarian, after all).
