Nuke this thread if there's already one but I sure couldn't find it.

I've watched the the first episode and half the second.  Enjoying it so far more than I did Interview/Vampire.  Daddario is always a treat, and Huston's an interesting choice for Lasher.

Appears to be an AMC series, not Prime.  Amazon is just teasing the 1st episode free.  Does look good though.

Ah, you're right.  I've got the AMC+ thing through Amazon.

Finished the 2nd episode last night, still enjoying it.

Like Interview, it's such a departure from the books I don't know exactly where they're going or how they're gonna get there, so that's cool.

The books were great.

Daddario is amazing looking 36.

Let’s be honest here. Boobs?

If they didn't give 'em to us in the boat-sex scene or the shower in episode two, then apparently she isn't showing those things off anymore.

Shame.

The books were great.

I also read the books several years ago when I called New Orleans home.  Really liked how the city was as much of a character  as any of the Mayfairs. I keep wondering why they totally rewrote the entirety of The Witching Hour for this series… at least so far. Totally unrecognizable through the first three episodes except for the a few names and the Uptown New Orleans setting. But I will keep watching.

It is a departure, but so far, I like it.  I am actually starting to reread the books. I went to college in NOLA, and read the books back when I was in high school.  I actually do not remember the books.  I do know they have combined characters (i.e. looks like Michael Curry and David Lightener have been combined and Rowan's relationship with Michael has been omitted), but we shall see.  I always thought the history of the Mayfair Clan was really compelling.

I found episode 3 pretty boring.

As far as the departure from Rice's work, they basically took the names and location and created a new story.  This Rowan is nothing like the Rowan we read about.  But whatever, I don't care as long as they do a good job.

Hoping it gets better and introduces more characters from the novels.  Mona was my favorite.  And Oncle Julien but I guess Hamlin's character is filling in for him.

Plus, you have the black branch of the Mayfair clan that were just as interesting.

So when she was flying to New Orleans she was…getting off to her mom getting off? I know Rice is kinky but that was weird.

Hamlin’s accent is cringey.

I really want to like this but so far it has major CW vibes to me. I read four or five of the vampire books but none of the witch books so I don’t know what I’m missing. But I know what Rice is capable of.

Plus, a college buddy plays the bald guy on the phone in episode two (the psychic guy’s boss) so I want it to do well. He gave up a successful career to pursue acting and has had some small parts in Curb and other popular shows.

It seems like the Dave Matthews clone they picked for Lasher is an odd choice. He’s apparently described as “a slim, pale, elegant figure with dark eyes and dark hair”

He's another species in the book, called Taltos.

If you enjoyed the vampire novels you'd really enjoy the Mayfair Witches books.
