Did anyone watch this? The first episode was completely up its own arse but I think I’ll stick with it!

Anybody have any ideas what the Mum is doing keep touching her eyelashes? Does she have that condition where you pull your hair out?

I’ve just watched the first episode and I’m not totally sold on it. I think it’s trying to be Big Little Lies but it’s not quite coming off. I’ll watch the next and see.

Gripping, strange, and atmospheric. Will keep watching....For the moment, anyway.

It's so weird. But the child actor is good. She was great in IT!
I hope it gets bette or tho or will have to turn off.

Rollergirl11 Fri 13-Jul-18 23:43:29

I thought it was the girl from It!

I was hoping someone would talk about this...I found it strange from the get go..The sound was really muffled I thought and hard to hear..Question: With all that neat vodka why wasn’t she rolling down the street? Yes, the eyelash thing and the weird stepfather...I’m going to watch it again as I feel there’s bits I missed. Odd.

I guess if you’re heavy drinking to that level long term perhaps your body builds up a tolerance to it? Yes any normal person would be obliterated by that amount of alcohol.

It has a very unsettling and malevolent vibe running through it. Her relationship with her mother is deeply fucked. Did you see all the words carved all over her skin when she got in the bath? The words all over her back must have been done by someone else?

I've read the book, and was intrigued to see how this would translate to screen. It's not disappointed me so far.

Kit10 Sat 14-Jul-18 13:09:54

Ah when and where is it on?! I've read the book.

DartfordBridge Sat 14-Jul-18 13:11:30

I liked it. Reminded me of the first series of true detective

Just watching the first episode now - not sure about it yet. For those who have read the book, does it all become clear? Is it worth sticking with?

LadyRochfordsHoickedGusset Mon 16-Jul-18 07:47:01

Yes it does. There's a massive twist at the end. I like it so far.

LadyRochfordsHoickedGusset Mon 16-Jul-18 07:48:45

Yep mum has trichotillomania.

LadyRochfordsHoickedGusset Mon 16-Jul-18 07:55:32

A few twists not just one.

EachandEveryone Mon 16-Jul-18 19:22:34

Does it need eight episodes?

MrStarkIDontFeelSoGood Mon 16-Jul-18 20:42:31

I've just watched episode 2 on demand

Can anyone tell me what Amma said to Camille at the end, couldn't work it out

LadyRochfordsHoickedGusset Thu 19-Jul-18 17:41:19

@MrStark she said "I think Camille can be good" to her mum and then "Can't you Camille?"

PsychedelicSheep Thu 19-Jul-18 22:38:18

DartfordBridge I thought it was reminiscent of S1 of True Detective too.

the teeth pulling thing made me cringe 😣

DP not a fan, think he finds it slow, I don't mind the pacing though

MrStarkIDontFeelSoGood Thu 19-Jul-18 22:54:44


I find it very odd and slow but I'm sticking with it

I've seen Sinister Rich Stepdad play that exact role before but can't remember where

iheartmichellemallon Sat 21-Jul-18 10:00:06

He was the dad in Revenge & was similar character in that.

ElenaGreco123 Mon 23-Jul-18 22:50:33

The heat, claustrophobia and general weirdness of it all reminded me of S1 of True Detective, too.

I love Amy Adams and Chris Messina.

TomHardysBackpack Tue 24-Jul-18 10:41:51

Episode 3 was pretty gruelling. Her mum is awful.

MrStarkIDontFeelSoGood Tue 24-Jul-18 11:56:11

I find its slightly pretentious hard to followness quite annoying but it is intriguing

Yes it was Revenge I was thinking of

TomHardysBackpack Tue 24-Jul-18 12:29:26

So many weird things like the fact she only has one top and pair of trousers which she also sleeps in

SporkInTheToaster Tue 24-Jul-18 12:32:23

DH also likened it to True Detective. He likes it.

I find it slow and navel-gazing and a bit ‘meh’, tbh. Sticking with it for the attractive cop eye candy.
