Starts off pretty straightforward, but then the plot thickens... and you're hooked. Some of the adaptations of Stephen King's stories end up atrocious messes, but this one has real potential! Sublime acting.

If only HBO would release the entire series at once. I hate waiting for new episodes. ;)

First 2 episodes were very promising and intriguing, directed by Justin Bateman who also performed as a main character. Then the next 8 episodes feel so long, dragging along the story with slow development and minor characters mixing it up.

The reason I kept watching was because of Cynthia Erivo's wonderful performance as Holly. Positive note to Ben Mendonsohn acting too.

In the end, I feel this could have been an 5 episode series or a 2h movie.

Jason Bateman has become one of my favourite actors, he disappeared from the limelight for years and has come back stronger and better than ever before. This show is absolutely fantastic, you are hooked within the first ten minutes and you can't look away so put your phone on silent and your feet up to enjoy this suspenseful edge of your seat mystery! Forget the negative reviews especially about Ben Mendelson's lisp for goodness sake he's a great actor and anyone with negative reviews clearly doesn't appreciate good acting and film!

Somebody give Ben Mendelssohn an award, I love him so much! The acting is impeccable quite captivating already. I'm excited for more I think The Outsider is better than Watchmen by a long shot! 2020 is gonna be so good for shows and movies. I love the music, expressions, and cinematography as well!

Edit:My name is Alex Nolan and I'd love to be famous!

I loved the first two episodes and was absolutely gripped. Then episode 3 and 4 happened. I was wondering why the style, pacing, even lighting changed for the worse. Why did this suddenly change from an engaging mystery to a slow, arty-farty borefest where the majority of long, lingering scenes are watching people travel on public transport with no dialogue. Far too much time suddenly spent on cinematography than actual story.

Wondering why the sudden change in direction, I noticed that Jason Bateman stopped directing after the second episode and handed the reins over to Andrew Bernstein, who has seemingly made a hash of things. After finishing episode 4 and struggling to stay awake, I'm done.

I only gave it 5 stars as the start was so good.

When I read this book, I couldn't put it down. The series so far is the SAME WAY - the cast is excellent, the sound editing sets the scene and I am highly doubtful anyone guesses the ending. This is classic Stephen King...believable humans at their worst (and best). Tough to watch and impossible to look away. I hope people stick with the full story (and read the book too)!

First few episodes had me thinking this was going to be a great series. The last two episodes made me so angry that im finding it hard to put it into words. For the life of me i cant figure out how they could screw it up so badly.

If you havent seen this yet, please dont you will only get disappointed and frustrated like me. Its almost like they had good writers in the beginning and they got replaced by total amateurs halfway through..

Dont believe the good ratings, they only saw the first two episodes or are involved in making of the show somehow.

First of all, the story was great. This series had such great potential to be brilliant, addictive and entertaining, but .. What an artistic poop. The story is stretched, situations prolonged. Long music scenes where nothing happens. The series would have been a great 5 episode miniseries. The 10 episodes were absolutely insane to extend the story, which culminated in the final 50 minute episode, where the actual entertainment was 15-20 minutes. 6/10 because this was ok, but not addictive and entertainment what I expeckted seeing the first episode. What a disappointment.

The first few episodes were really good, then each week was worse than the last. The finale was fine, but was hoping for more.

bluesky-83047 21 September 2020

The start was great but the end was ridiculous, it was like a child's play. I felt cheated with the two last episodes. I couldn't understand why they screw it up so badly.

Really enjoying this adaptation. Faithful to the story. Jason Bateman just gets better as both an actor (been a fan since "It's Your Move" !) and a director; simply but electrifying use of pace, angles & cinematography. He has a delicate touch that leaves you feeling like you're part of the story watching from over a shoulder. Genius.
