So nobody is watching this? I thought it was going to be a "medical" show, but it's basically Call of Cthulhu. I recommend it.

I haven't watched anything since the Pilot, which I liked. But I skipped the 2nd episode because I heard it wasn't good, and then friends and reviews got me interested in the third, but I've not seen it since because I've been traveling and stuff. Maybe I will catch up. I liked it, but I don't know if enough to follow through. It's fun in a campy kind of way, and it has that Del Toro touch so obviously it looks great. One of the better looking genre shows out, for sure.

Haven't gotten around to it yet. Though I did enjoy the books (even if the third act slumped a bit), so I look forward to trying out the series.

I'm not fully on board with it. Some stuff stands out as too silly with me, but it's a pure popcorn show. It's just fun and it's not deep at all, with the background characters being more interesting than the main ones, but not so much that they're boring. It's cool genre fodder. And again, it really does look great.

It's basically a live action Call of Cthulhu role playing game session. Its fun and I'm enjoying it. Sure, it's not that deep.

The now cancelled Revolution was a similarly "lightly written" show, but I found it fun to watch - plot holes and all.

The second to latest episode was quite good, I was surprised by how affecting it was. Meanwhile, the latest one was just sort of "eh", not bad. I thought it was hilarious how the kid's iPhone fell from a small height and it broke, I guess it's just reflective of reality. Also The Master or whatever is just fugly, and not in a good way. He looks corny.
