    The Third Day is a six-part mini-series on HBO. It premiered last night, Monday Sept 14 2020.

    From wiki:

    The Third Day is a drama television miniseries created by writer Dennis Kelly and Felix Barrett, and directed by Marc Munden and Philippa Lowthorpe.

    A co-production between Sky Studios, HBO, Plan B Entertainment and Punchdrunk, the series premiered in the United States on September 14, 2020 on HBO, and in the United Kingdom on September 15, 2020 on Sky Atlantic.

    Premise
    The series chronicles the individual journeys of a man and woman who arrive on a mysterious island at different times.

    The production will be split into three parts with three interconnected stories. The first, 'Summer', directed by Marc Munden, will follow Sam (played by Jude Law), a man drawn to a mysterious island off the British coast where he encounters a group of islanders set on preserving their traditions at any cost.

    The second part of the production, 'Autumn', will be told during a one-off live event in London after the summer section of the show has been broadcast. Described by the producers of the show as a "major immersive theatre event", the live segment of the show will air in one continuous take and is intended to allow followers of The Third Day to "inhabit the story as it happens". It will feature Jude Law and other members of the series cast.

    The third part of the series, 'Winter', directed by Philippa Lowthorpe, follows Helen (played by Naomie Harris), a strong-willed outsider who comes to the island seeking answers, but whose arrival precipitates a fractious battle to decide its fate.

    Anyone watch? I'll watch try almost anything HBO airs.

    I found this disappointing. As in boring, slow-paced, plodding. I had little interest in seeing where it goes. I actually stopped watching about 45 minutes in. I may finish the last 15 minutes at some point.

    Part of it may be Jude Law. I've found his last couple of projects just boooring. He's not an engaging actor (IMHO).
