Through episode 3, the writing, creeping sense of horror and dread, with just enough mystery, keep the viewing wanting more. Casting is excellent, plot is not predictable, but keeps one guessing trying to out fox the show creators. Easter eggs and references to 'Salem's Lot and Jerusalem's Lot abound. There is a smidgen of wokeness, but it fits in well and isn't a diversion. (Thus far).
The music and atmosphere compliment the story, cast, and history.
So far, excellent and worth the time. Epix teases with 3 episodes and then goes weekly. Which is to be expected as streaming services are finally realizing they can't survive allowing folks to binge 9 series in a month or week. I'm still trying to decide if I'll wait and binge the rest, or deal with the weekly anticipation.
If you like classic horror, this will be a creepy welcome home.
