I don't mind the speed. In fact, I could watch hours of other people reacting to google image searches of monsters.

I like how this show isn't trying to shove twists down your throat and is instead slowly revealing what's going on. Feels like an anomaly in today's writing.
My feelings as well. Also weird how some scenes of this latest episode were filmed a block away from me and I never noticed.

Really enjoying the show so far. It’s a slow burn but a good one.

I like Holly and I’m worried she’s going to die as she get closer.


Holly: You said IT.
IT extended universe

I don’t think Holly will die-as she’s a pretty big recurring King character. But who knows, maybe they’ll throw a curve ball.

I really love her actress-this is a great role for her.

Maybe it was my mood but that episode did very little for me. I think Holly is just a bit silly and unconvincing and this time she was tasked with carrying almost every scene. Hopefully an anomaly

my only issue with this show is that they chose 3 actors who play prominent characters and look very similar to each other

It's a good show. I've not read the book. But the problem with the last few eps is that we know more than the characters.

It's a slow realization for the characters. But for the rest of us even if I don't know all the specifics have a pretty good idea what's happening.

Which makes this slowly paced show feel like molasses

The scary painting google search scene was super lame that was literally just the first couple of results when you google scary paintings. I was expecting some orignal art at least I guess it's realastic but come on you got a shape shifting monster I can deal with google results being fake.

Have not read the book but I just wanted to say that after rewatching, the 'melty face' hooded stranger is definitely wearing a mask. No way the show would just use an old mask and dim lighting, pretty sure the character(s?) is wearing a mask. But I don't really know.

Who?

I have been having trouble with the actor playing Ralph, mostly because I find the performance weirdly understated. He also looks a lot like John Kasich which is very distracting.

The main character, the strip club owner, the detective who
was just marked by the demon

yeah that part had me double checking that i was indeed watching an HBO show and not something on CW
