I took it more like he’d been fired or quit.  I assume we’ll learn the backstory at some point

Really digging the show thus far. A few corny lines that make you roll your eyes, but plenty of good stuff that overcomes it.

Both Terry and Heath left town and got infected, returned home and then left town again - creating the opportunities which lead to their demise (and that of the victims). But whatever's happening to the Jack character and whatever happened to the chick, don't look to include either of them leaving town. Wondering if this is an intentional pattern change or more coincidental?

Also in the other situations, not only are the victim and "host" impacted significantly, but the families are tragically affected as well: Chick's family & victim's; Heath's family (not sure about his victim's or maybe just didn't pick up on it); but definitely Terry's victim's family. Curious why then the Maitlands haven't experienced as much 'grief' as the other affected families?

This looks good, but I'm concerned the resolution is gonna be "it's aliens" or "the boogeyman."  

Looks like the boogeyman.

i am highly entertained by this show but it definitely annoys me that we are effectively replaying the azazel character from "fallen."

3 episodes in, pretty good so far. Terry’s wife is a miserable cunt in every scene though. Really hope she gets killed off.

Not really the same thing. Azazel had no physical form, he just hopped into new bodies and controlled them.

The boogeyman here is perfectly mimicking people or creating doppelgangers.

I gathered that the bad guy tried to visit the family and fuck with them but the little girl ain’t scared of him and tells him to fuck himself.  maybe it’s like “it” where if she isn’t afraid of him he can’t do anything.

Yeah I lean towards the different family demises we have seen were under the influence of the boogeyman and something with the little girl has prevented him from getting to the Maitlands.  He didn't create dopplegangers of the other family members but maybe he was controlling them like the cop?

That movie freaked me out the first time I saw it.

Time Is On My Side by the Stones took on a whole new meaning for me when I heard it after that.

Who came up with that one? It doesn't jibe with all his other books.

If anyone is the ultimate evil in the King Universe, it's The Crimson King.

Don't feel like we advanced the plot too much tonight, but the atmosphere and the acting are so thoroughly enjoyable.

It's very well done, but given the pacing the last two episodes, and the likely resolution appears to be "the boogeyman makes clones," this should have been 6-7 episodes, not 10.

I watched episode 4 last night.  I liked it.  Yeah, it was a bit slow but needed IMHO for later episodes.  The acting is really really good.

How would you know what is needed for later episodes? Better not be reading on us.

Like it so far. Someone said the monster failed with the little girl because she did not fear him. I think it feeds off of grief, not fear and she might just be apathetic. She does not seem to show much emotion even talking about her father.

I'm quite impressed with how thorough a job they've done, with not a tremendous amount of screen time, of making Jack so immensely unlikable.

Yeah,the score really helps contribute to that as well. The acting, direction, cinematography, and score are all excellent.

I was watching Back to the Future on cable recently and noticed  a scene when Biff is driving/listening to the radio, and a broadcaster reports some college football scores. There's a Texas score mentioned. I looked up the '55 season and sadly confirmed "Texas Christian over Texas, forty-seven to twenty" on 11/12/55 was indeed accurate.

Anyone know if Charlie Strong drives a DeLorean?

Texas was 5-5 that year, Joe Clements was QB1, and TCU was ranked #7 (beat Bama and Miami). Later in the year, the Longhorns did beat #8 aggy. The year after that, they won one game, necessitating the change to DKR.

^Beating Bama and Miami would not be a good indicator of a great team, that year anyway. Ears Whitworth was the Coach at Bama then, he won a total of 4 games in his three years there. Miami was a nothing program until Howard Schnellenberger took over the program in the 80's.

Terry’s wife is such a whiny cunt that any scenes she’s in are almost unwatchable. She’s the worst element of the show by 6 country miles.

The portion with the dead abusive mom felt like vintage Stephen King. I was trying to remember who that was and she was on HBO's Dream On in the early 90s and was on SNL for about 2 seasons.

I don't think I can overstate how important Dream On was for world class titty scenes for impressionable young men in the pre-internet era.  I'm pretty sure it's slated to be selected for preservation by the US National TV and Film Registry as being culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.

I like it, but we seem to be jumping up and down in the same place.

Ralph sees only what he wants to see. Everybody is skeptical about the Dayton detective. Let's move forward.
