So much potential wasted. Yet another example of a great Stephen King story being unnecessarily changed by movie/tv writers for the worse. It can be somewhat understandable for a single movie, but not in a 10 hour series. The show starts off faithful enough but then decides to completely ignore and discard the character growth and arcs of Jerome and Holly leaving the whole thing flat while trying to end the "same" was as the book. So much potential to do the Bill Hodges Trilogy justice in 3 seasons but without the development of essential characters from the start, I think I'll pass going forward. Truly a shame.

It wasn't bad, that being said it wasn't great either. After reading the synopsis for the next season I won't be paying any money to watch it. I would have appreciated a more book accurate experience, I feel like they butchered it and left out key parts, especially by switching the books around with the order of seasons.

Good but if you're Native American, Season 3 episode 7 has some racist b*llsh*t in it. Didn't read the book and don't see any reason to now.
