    Seems like it's getting mixed reviews.

    Just like the book, it will appeal more to the women rather than the men. Love Story / Chick Flick.

    Women 8/10 - Men 3/10

    The second episode just made me want to self-harm.

    The Easter Eggs are not too good.

    Spoiler:
    Charlie the Choo Choo is supposed to be Scott's favourite book as a child. He must be pretty young as it came out in 2016.

    I think that yes : if you are waiting for a very exciting action-packed series, you'll be disappointed.
    This is a very personal story
    A very visual story

    It's therefore slow paced and not everybody is going to like it. But I thought that it is a very good adaptation.
    People that liked the book are likely to really love that series.
    Fans that struggled to read the book and even quitted (there are quite a few that did that) may find easier to watch a series to rediscover the story, even if doing something else at the same time. Even though that would diminish the power of the story.

    The opening credits, with the string dolls really reminds me of something recent. From the past year or two. From another series
    But I can't kind put my finger on it... any ideas?

    Short video published by Apple about Pedro Larraín's vision

    Pay attention to the easter egg. (Clue: "Empty devils" book cover) ;-)

    Lighting the set with a 40 watt light bulb is not atmospheric. It just means you haven't even tried or cared.

    King is plugging this series everywhere, but he needs to stop trying to polish the turd.

    The more the critics dislike it, the better the chances are that I'll like it.

    Hopefully it'll make it to blu-ray at some point so I can watch it.

    I will say that the acting is great and the cinematography is nice also.

    King also heavily plugged the Under The Dome series. The man has zero credibility when it comes to recommendations.
