The premise is good and could have taken us to a lot of cool stuff... Instead were dealing with drunks, addicts, teen angst and daddy-issues most of the time. I understand it has to be there but it could have been done a bit more in the background. The looming sense of dread, the shadow in the doorway rather than bad-dad-trope-galore.

This show is bad and boring. Some good acting interspersed with plenty of bad acting. All of which, unfortunately, lives within a really bad script.

A terrible convoluted story line and pisspoor casting choices make this show watchable at best , certainly not very likable . The story mixes too many different psychic and supernatural elements to the point that it comes off as comical . The characters are rife with cliche and they try to tick every social justice issue . I can only hope the book was not as bad . Casting is not all bad , but I would describe it as extremely hit and miss . Vic and her mother are only like 10 years different in real age and look like sisters . The accents of the locals in this New England town , and especially Vic's family , are all over the place . From full Boston accent to nothing . I can't complain about Zachary Quinto though , I've always thought he was creepy and colorless as an actor so he's quite good as a vampire . The cinematography seems very well done . A+ for that .

As much as I usually adore Zachary Quinto, even he can't save this show. I am quite sure that the story could be intriguing and adapted into the screen in a great way, but this show feels very much like a student movie for a class in school.

I‘m not sure what I was expecting. And I didn’t read the book. But the show is really quite boring. Nothing really happening most of the time. All of it would have fitted quite well in two episodes.

avatar

Its such a great premise for a story … Loved the book and the show is doing it some justice. Not as creepy and suspenseful as it could be, but all in all, the show really brought the book to life I would not have cast Quinto as Manx though … but he is doing a decent job

avatar

even with 20 episodes total, only equaling 15 hours, there is too much filler and unnecessary slow-pacing to make this show as interesting as it should be - it could easily be half as many episodes over two seasons and tell me just as much. most of my viewing was waiting for something to happen, feeling like it was building up to something happening, and nothing of importance/significance actually happening, repeat.

An interesting premise in search of some good writing.

In today's world no children story is complete without cunnilingus.

The show is well crafted. The actors are on point. The story and camera work fit well into the horror genre.

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
