    Anyone else watching? I just watched the first episode and am definitely in for more. Based on a Steven King Novel.

    94% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes

    First episode reminds me a little bit of "The Night Of," another HBO show. That one took a nose dive as the season progressed. Hopefully this one keeps it going.

    Oh yeah, I'm watching.

    It's about to go from dark police mystery to some weird sh!t, I'm guessing.

    enjoying it so far

    the apparent supernatural element kills the mystery that was presented in the beginning

    I thought the first 3 episodes were great, I actually appreciated the supernatural elements. It changed it up from the standard murder mystery like these, I kind of like not knowing where it's all going......

    It's been real good so far. I'm enjoying it.

    However...I've generally always liked how Stephen King stories begin, but never really like how the end. I haven't read the book so we'll see how things go.

    I read it a year ago and have pretty much forgot the whole thing. In other words, it was mediocre for King (who I love BTW).

    I can tell you the ending wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible either.

    I'm watching. Still trying to figure out who/how/what this evil entity manifests itself.

    I'm a fan of King too but that does describe a lot of his books, IT, The Stand......

    Very true. Also true: I gave up on The Stand. Literally couldn't finish it. After 500 pages of nothing I had to move on. Same with his latest, The Institute, which I gave up on after only a chapter.

    I either love his stories or I don't. IT is one of my all-time favorite books, but yeah... not a great ending.
