Blown away! This is not just a reboot of the nurse from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, but an homage the New Cinema Era and the psychological thriller. I am seeing and hearing notes from Hitchcock, Brian De Palma (the split screen and wipes), Neo Noir, Post World War II America, the hair, hats, fashion and car culture of the 40s. If you are a cinephile like me, this series feels familiar in so many scenes. I am especially loving the moral ambiguity of the protagonist. Anti-Hero? Hero? Victim? Sadist? I am so looking forward to this journey and character arc. I'm hooked!

Love this, is amazingly dark. So much roller coaster or backstabbing. [spoiler] Didn't expect main role to have that big character development.[/spoiler].

All in all, wonderful. I wasn't quite on board with the last episode or so, somehow it had lost the bite, or maybe it wasn't as planned out as the rest. Still, remarkably enjoyable show.

The first Season has a really strong start but gets weaker with its last episodes. To be frank, I'm not sold on the turn the story took. Most of characters are really well written and their dynamics are interesting and believable, yet one or two in particular are really quite ridiculous and destroy the immersion. The best thing about the series so far is the directing and editing. An homage to the era the series takes place in. A lot of the shots were interestingly composed, the colours beautifully and appropriately edited. The gore is woven into the scenery with creativity and charm which makes it a lot more disturbing and interesting to watch. The actors are strong as well and pulled the a little outdated style of acting from the 40s off which, once getting used to, is really entertaining. I'm looking forward to the next season, however, sadly not as much as I was hoping to due to the weak characters and plot points in the last couple episodes.

I've only watched episode 1 so far and I can't wait to watch the rest. Paulson gives another riveting performance. And the mindset of Nurse Ratched is quite fascinating. It is fascinating to see how fluid Ratched's morals are.

If you love โ€žThe Knickโ€œ u will like Ratched

Well, that was boring. It's Netflix, I should've known.

Absolutely fantastic, dark show! At the risk of sounding sexist, I think it's a shame they [spoiler] killed off all the good male characters, while the women felt safe (Of course there are a few exceptions). [/spoiler] I'm obviously not against a show with strong female leads, but this took it almost too far, to the point where I could see how it would end because of it. There was also constantly sexist remarks from the women, and the males are written as literally being too weak to stand up for themselves. (Obviously written by a feminist) This is especially unrealistic considering the time period, where I imagine it would be quite the opposite. The final episode was by far the weakest one, as most the plot lines had already been resolved in episode 7. A shame it couldn't keep the tempo all the way to the finish line, but still I think this show was brilliant and deserves a 9/10 rating.

Have to say I enjoyed watching this. Will be interesting to see if a second series (if it happens) can live up to the first. I'd agree with some of the other comments, it does look a bit like AHS

Fascinating .. a little bit sluggish at time.

Sarah Paulson absolutely shines in this role and she is probably the main reason I'm choosing to rate this so high. If I was to dissect this then there wasn't much to the actual story but the style choices and the cast along with the amazing cinematography is what made me love this.

This show was incredible! Sarah Paulson bringing her A-game yet again. Stellar cast all together. Eerie story with characters that all served a purpose to the story. There was some gore, some humor, something for everyone truly.
