    Really enjoyed the book and it should be a fairly straight-forward job to translate it to TV.

    Lovecraft eh...

    *watches trailer*

    Huh. Big slobbering monster dogs eh. Not sure they've quite got the whole "Lovecraft" aspect down?

    Dull show. Preachy mess


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,370 ✭✭✭ Cina


    Really enjoyable opener.

    Looks like it's going down the Watchmen route with user reviews of "white man gets upset cause show highlights all the bad things white man did".

    It was a bloody mental opening episode. Loved it. :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,498 ✭✭✭✭ partyjungle


    It really takes a turn towards the end. It's utterly insane but I'm loving it strangely.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,009 ✭✭✭ gazzer


    Watched this last night and really enjoyed it. The ending was mental :):)


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,593 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Well that was god damn great and then last 20 minutes just made it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 402 ✭✭ Full_Circle_81


    I enjoyed that more than I thought I would, not having watched a single trailer or read the book.
    The only thing I'll say is that I thought the effects in opening shot looked quite well (in an OTT pulpy on purpose kind of way), but then found the effects at the end quite ropey (to put it mildly).

    The actual racism was scarier than the many eyed monsters, why did the girl say kilometres when the sheriff was following them


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,484 ✭✭✭✭ Galwayguy35


    Not sure what to make of it yet, the monsters looked something like what was on the original Ghostbusters film nearly 40 years ago.

    Will keep watching as the only other thing I have on Mondays is Muppets.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,612 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    1: Solid episode getting across the setting. Plenty to do from here. The Princess at the start was done kinda cool.

    Its so funny, I went from being someone who got so excited whenever I saw his name attached to anything, to being super wary and sceptical. His name just screams "mystery-box" to me now and I usually fear straight away that the story is going to have a hugely unsatisfying ending with a mystery that never gets explained properly.

    I guess with this, at least its based on a book, so I imagine that the story has more focus than the ones he is normally directly involved in.

    Loved this...

    .. having not read much about it.. the last 10 minutes were a curveball to say the least!

    They've done it before.. it'll just be the pilot uploaded I reckon.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,729 ✭✭✭ steve_r


    Think it's a great idea on their part. Give the show a massive boost to its profile, spread the word, get people talking. Let people have a taste of the type of shows that HBO have


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,398 ✭✭✭✭ AMKC


    I had seen the adds for this and was not sure what expect from it never having read the book or books but I have to say when I watched it at first I was not sure but I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to the next episode tomorrow.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,191 ✭✭✭ RandomViewer


    Lovecraft was a bigoted racist his views on anyone not AngloSaxon we're quite extreme,


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,593 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    A great follow up episode keeping the crazy bonkers story going.
