    You know, regardless of whether this is a good series or not, am I crazy or are any of you getting sick of the "Streaming Barrage"? I mean, help me, Rhonda, HBO MAX, Hulu, Apple, Amazon, Disney, Netflix, Peacock, and now Epix (and I'm sure I missed a few in there)!!! How are you supposed to subscribe for all this shit? I already pay $100+ per month for "Directv" (I also get the NFL and MLB packages), Netflix (from my daughter), Amazon (I Pay), Disney+ (I pay for me and the grandkids) add in the cost of broadband and you're looking AT A NICE CAR PAYMENT EVERY MONTH FOR THIS STUFF!!! LORD HELP US ALL!!!! LOL
    The Houston Astros cheated Major League Baseball from 2017-18!!!!

    You’re not crazy and yes I am; I’m waiting for the industry to settle into a form that allows the providers to monetize in a way that isn't prohibitive to the average viewer.

    Just kidding; I brook loads of bullshit.

    Amazon is apparently trying to buy MGM for 9 billions
    MGM owns or is a partial-owner of Epix, so it could end up being owned by Amazon... but probably not before the summer

    Otherwise, I agree with you.
    Too many platforms. Everybody wants their slice of the cake. But not all the streaming platforms are Netflix or Disney. It's going to end up that people are using the trial or using alternate ways to watch the series.

    I personnally don't have a TV, so don't pay the tv licence. I only have the internet and Netflix ( and Apple TV because I got 1 year for free with my new phone but will cancel it, and Amazon Prime Video because it's free being a Prime member), and that's it. I don't see the point of the other platforms frankly. Why should I care about having 200 channels when I have the internet and already all the content I need?

    The one that really tempts me is Youtube Premium. Because I work constantly with Youtube Music in the background. And my wife and I watch a lot of stuff on Youtube. There are adblockers for computers, but on phone it's annoying to listen to a podcast and have an ad every 5 minutes.... so this one is tempting.... but I cant be bothered paying 20 euros per month for this

    Bill, Epix is just an actual TV channel so your DirecTV package might already have it.

    I know, Mae but it's another $5.99 per month. I already subscribe to, HBO, Starz, TMC, Showtime, MLB Package and the NFL package. I have the premium package with DTV. I tried Epix during the free weekends and then for a couple months and it didn't seem worthy. The fact is that HBO/Starz/Showtime/TMC are all owned by one corporation and for the most part they just divy from the same pool of movies just at different times and what not. Only the original series seem sacred and protected from one another.

    Have any of you noticed that there was a big shift at, Amazon Prime"? There seems to be a lot less "Included with Prime" movies and a shit load more rentals plus, a lot of films from the "Starz" catalogue/Channel. You got it right, St. Troy, sooner or later they will eventually gobble up most of the services and only a few streaming services will survive. Likely, Amazon, Netfliz and of course, Disney. I bet even the network services will be sold to the giants at somepoint.

    Here's my series preview.

    It's at least two episodes longer than necessary, maybe four, but I enjoyed it. If you don't mind a leisurely pace, there's lots to be enjoyed in it.

    The addition of children (of Charles Boone) is the first sign of possible adaptation trouble: the story didn't need "child concern" (is that a trope? if not, maybe it should be) to amp things up (nothing was wrong with Charles and Cal in a big house). Still, I liked what I saw of the expanded story in the trailer (nice to see Stevie from Schitt's Creek again), so I'm still somewhat optimistic.

    I don't (assuming it's not loaded down with the narrative equivalent of bread crumbs in meatballs).

    I thought the production values and acting were decent. That is always a concern with a show set in an historical era. It's expensive to make the sets and costumes. The plot is a little slow, though. Nice to see "Stevie." It took me forever to place her out of context. The kids are good but used in a lazy woke way to highlight racial intolerance. A typical Hollywood ploy when they are out of ideas.

    I liked the vampire in episode 5. He really evoked a creepy throwback to the Barlow vampire from the 70s movie. It's unfortunate that they didn't stick to the main storyline here from King's story, but instead decided to interject a lot of Hollywood woke themed plots involving diversity and sexism. As though the 18th century was a hot bed of modern social activism.
