Jason Bateman stars and directs. 2 episodes aired tonight. Have watched the 1st. Was excellent. Very chilling. What are people’s thoughts?
No one else watching
This is from last week E5 / still don’t understand what is happening
In Cherokee City, the hooded figure appears to Ralph's wife Jeannie, relaying a warning to Ralph that they will both be killed if he continues his investigation. Ralph brushes this off as a nightmare of Jeannie's, but is unsettled when her drawing of the intruder is extremely similar to the boy's drawing of the man who took the van. In Dayton, Holly theorizes about the shape-shifting creature killing children, and visits the cemeteries of both Heath Hofstedter and his alleged victims, finding dilapidated buildings nearby and photographing them, believing that the creature would live in these buildings to feed on the suffering of those visiting the graves. She also meets a man associated with Heath, who later commits suicide-by-cop and is shown to have the same sores on his neck as Jack. Holly suggests Ralph take photographs around Terry's grave, and Ralph's partner Yun notices that the barn where the clothes were found is right by the cemetery. Holly opts to drive back to Cherokee City to debrief Ralph, Howie and Alec. The night before, she invites Andy Katcavage, a Dayton security officer with whom she's had a courtship, up to her room. Holly leaves the next morning but her car breaks down on the way out of Dayton. Andy finds her notes on the investigation and researches them. Continually terrorized by the unseen entity, Jack offers to help Ralph with his case.
I’m watching, well waiting to watch. It was clear for me in the first episode it was a show I needed to watch without my mobile phone in my hand and needed to concentrate (got into to many bad habits). Surprised at how much I am enjoying it and loving the characters especially Holly. But then I also liked Hollys’ character in mr Mercedes.
Still persevering but actually starting to get a bit irritated with it now. It’s just sooo slooooow. There are also a few inconsistencies which I’m struggling to ignore.
Terry Maitland, Hofstedter and the other woman (can’t remember her name) were completely oblivious to the fact that there was a doppelgänger that had stolen their DNA and had no memory of anything. Whereas Claude (the latest person to be targeted) appears to be acting strangely and out of character.
Holly returns to Cherokee City to report her findings. She gives evidence of how all the murders were connected and that she believes "an entity" is responsible for the killings and that the priority is to find the person most recently infected by it and to isolate them. This is received poorly by the police, especially Glory Maitland who berates them all for their incompetence. The entity punishes Jack for failing to stop Holly's investigation by appearing in the form of his deceased mother and severely beating him. Jeannie invites Holly to stay with her and Ralph at their house, where Jeannie increasingly believes in the entity due to the matching descriptions and Holly's theories. Ralph is still skeptical until Holly uses a blue light against the chair where the entity was sitting in Jeannie's dream and finds the same residue that was found on the clothes in the barn as well as fingerprints. Holly now believes the entity is "shedding" as it transforms into the monster that can kill children, but must use a host while it is vulnerable to do its bidding. Jack invites Holly to visit the barn where Terry's clothes were found, but while driving, she notices the rash on the back of his neck. Realizing her imminent danger, she tries to return to town but Jack tells her to continue driving.
