    I'm going to have to check that out.
    Nice. Yeah, I have no expectations for anything to beat Hill House to be honest. If they continue to do more seasons and something eventually does, then great, but like come on.

    Bly Manor was a different way of story telling from Hill House, that help character development but also was harder to follow at times. I think it was for the writers too because there's a storyline that they just dropped and never came back to. Still plenty scary and creepy.

    I thought there were very few scary/creepy moments. They marketed it as Hill House 2.0 and it turned into a gothic romance.

    Not as many as Hill House. But I can think of several

    I loved it.

    It was haunting. Truly haunting. It wasn't terrifying. I wasn't really scared. But what happens to that one person in particular is haunting as hell.

    Ya that was some heavy shit right there. What a way for that to go down.

    Speaking of, how I mentioned that storyline they left hanging
    what happened with the fiance ghost??? She was seeing him in reflections the entire show. She saw him that last time when she kissed the landscaper and freaked out. Never seen again. Never explained why or how it stopped.

    I think that the fiancé just represented her coping with that loss, the guilt, etc, and it wasn't truly a ghost haunting... more of a memory haunting. Once she accepted it and dealt with it, it didn't haunt her anymore. That's how I perceived it, anyway.

    I get that. But did she ever deal with it? She just freaked out that last time and nothing else was said or implied. Without it, yes what you said is the likely conclusion. It was just sloppy

    Well I think the idea was that she was suppressing it, and that's what was causing the visions. But once she allowed herself to fully remember/acknowledge it, that was enough. Maybe they could have given it a more graceful summary, but it didn't seem weird to me. Who knows, if I watch it again I might feel differently. :p

    You think? I’d hope not and that this is more precautionary for the recent cases spike.

    I really hope not. But it was already ridiculously expensive for a family of 4 to go to the movies. Those people will prefer the option to stream at home. The more people that stream at home, the more expensive theaters will be.

    I had a FB memory from seven years ago about SOA and TWD were the best shows on TV at the time.

    Feels way longer than 7 years ago and man, the great shows are few and far between now.

    Do you like crime/murder shows like the Killing? Highly recommend Happy Valley.
