Interesting... well I'm a sucker for anything labeled "incredibly scary" even though it rarely is.

Based on the trailer I think I will be able to convince my wife to watch this with me. Also I agree it does not look that scary. It looks good though.

I wanted to see this until I saw it was labeled that! I gotta support HBO though, so I will watch.

Keep us posted. I've read less than glowing things for the first 2 episodes, but it's HBO so it has to be good, right?!

I watched the first episode and like it so far. Not horror in any way so far though.

No horror yet. I suppose the horror could be a family losing their child in a horrific manner, the biggest suspect being a well-known and respected community member.

Starting to get supernatural towards the end of the second episode.

Now it's starting to get more supernatural.

This show reminds me a lot of 'The Night Of', at least for the first couple of episodes, and then it goes towards a more castle rock realm. It's supernatural, but so far everything is very well grounded in realism.

I left early yesterday and Janelle was sick, so we watched the first three episodes back to back and really enjoyed it. I love the characters in this, and the characters themselves seem to have quite a bit of depth to them. I wish that

Characters are starting to work in different directions based on the same clue.

Getting spooky. I'm confused by the "laws" regarding it.

I've been really enjoying this, and honestly I think It's my only real weekly show right now. B99 is in there too, but we aren't watching much.

This show is really well done, and the sense of dread on it has been good. The whole lack of believability from the main character gets a little tedious at times, but based on how this last episode ended, it's going to spiral into crazyville here. 2 episodes left!

Nope, just in time. Fleabag > Expanse > The Outsider is the correct order of tv shows im told.

I don't know if this is a must watch. If you're in for a crime drama with supernatural elements, sure I would recommend it. Nothing terribly scary as of yet. Like Wilkins said a decent sense of dread.
