    I'm not liking it. (up to episode 8) It's so slow and boring. I'll finish the season, but probably wont watch season 2.

    Darker, more grounded, more intense, more focused...

    Imagine my surprise, watching this for the first time last week and doing a double take..then a triple take.

    I saw my own (former house). Turns out this was mostly filmed in my former town (Orange, MA) about 15 minutes away from where I live now.

    All those shots of the mill buildings and bridge and bus stop, etc...are only a half mile away from my old house.

    Well, that was quite the ending. I'm not sure where they go for the second season (presumably, The Kid will get out of the cage again).

    Interesting mid-credits scene with Jackie talking about going "west" to finish her book.

    This was a complete story. Next season will be something new, like American Horror Story.

    I feel like a lot was left out. So the whole Henry Deaver episode was a BS story? Why did The Kid want to take Henry into the woods? Who killed the black guy who shoved Henry into that sound proof room?

    I thought the ending was a whole lotta - really? That's the ending?

    I was thinking The Kid wanted to take Henry to the woods because he could hear the sound and if he was there The Kid might be able to get back to his own timeline dimension or whatever it was.

    Henry locking The Kid back up in the cell didn't work for me.

    Assuming anything the Kid said was true...bear in mind, all we know about "his dimension" and who he "really is" is what he told us.

    My take. When Henry got the gun and The Kid looked up at him, Henry saw evil when The Kids face didn't like right in that one frame. I had to watch the scene again to get there. At first I was like "wtf happened?"
    However giving some sort of explanation as to what was in the woods and explaining the motivation of The Kid would have been nice. I think the show writers wanted an ambiguous ending, like they wanted some people think The Kid was telling the truth in his story, and some people to think he was the devil, but they left so much blank and up in the air that it was really unsatisfying.

    Great season finale.
    Guess they expected the season to end Feb 2019 or later (date on tombstone)
    Next year, "Out West"?

    I finished it. But it was quite the chore. Still not sure why I did. I guess my love for horror. I'm also not the biggest Stephen King fan, yeah I know, but because it was tied to many of his characters, I thought it would've been more interesting.

    Don't think I'll be there for season 2.

    Finally binged the remaining 6 episodes. I’m King fan and it wasn’t awful.

    I waited for this "nothing new on"period to catch up on my backlog. I’ll likely watch Season 2 during another dull period.
