    HBO shows are what 8-10 episodes a season? I might as well finish it up. If it gets dropped, oh well. But it is all over the place and I think they don't know
    what to do sometimes so they just through in a shock scene or two. But I will at least finish the season.

    Yeah, I'm the same way when it comes to shows like that. There aren't that many episodes left. It's just not one of the shows I will give my undivided attention to.

    And usually, HBO is money in the bank on new shows. Can't remember one that failed this miserably. 'Course the reviews and news snippets are still glowing. Likely cause they can't quite figure out what they're watching!! lol lol
    The Houston Astros cheated Major League Baseball from 2017-18!!!!

    They cheated their way to a couple of League Championships & a World Series!!!!

    Is that how we teach our kids to play the game now?????

Some have griped that this almost seems like an anthology series due to how each episode has such a different tone and goes on different tangents. Well apparently this is what the book did as well. I read that it had eight different stories each representing a different kind of horror that ended up all tying together. Let's hope the show can find a way to successfully do that.

    Interesting, I was curious what the book was like since the show seemed to be all over the place.

    For those that have kept up with it, is it worth continuing? I think I've only seen the first 3 or 4 episodes.
    Only the gentle are ever really strong.

    Yes. I guess part of my frustration with the show is that I didn't know it was going to be formatted that way. I really enjoyed those first two episodes and was looking forward to seeing that thread continue on.

    That episode was actually really good. Fucked up, but really good. It just felt so different in tone. The most recent episode was a real miss for me too. Trying to be like the Twilight Zone is really hard. It's not easy to have an engaging story with interesting characters all in one hour.

    I applaud the show for trying something different, but by in large, it's been a failure.

    So, the book also employs the overt racism the show does? Where all whites are evil and all African Americans noble and little or no in between? To me the overt reverse racism is a turn off much the saame as if it purported all whites to be noble and African Americans to be evil. Reality is loads of shades of gray IMHO

    I haven't read the book but based on the Wiki page for it those themes of American racism are a big part of the book. Take a look at the book cover:

    I saw one episode and that was more than enough for me.

    The racial overtones it exhibits seem counter productive and exactly the kind of hate they are trying to eliminate. Then what do I know. For me its a rare miss for HBO. I haven't found anything but the occasional imagery to be redeeming or interesting. Sucks, I had such high hopes.

    I'd prefer if this was an anthology at this point. The skipping around feels jarring.
