Last thing I expected to like for many reasons. But I did so they moved it to a pay channel I won't pay to watch. That makes 5 shows that I like all behind different pay channels. And google thinks season one is still in progress as of Sept 15, 2021. You just can't market things better.

I wasn't going to watch this show as I do not watch many broadcast TV shows, however, this show turned out to be a decent watch. I'll need to see a couple of more episodes to give a higher rating. I did like premise and the scenes involving the night terrors went from really, really scary to scary and even a bit amusing!;) I don't want to give anything else away so a viewer may judge for themselves!

Awesome. It really delves into the real world. Very unusual movie. I just wished it had stayed on CBS like it did for season one. So dissatisfied that I can't pay the out rages amount to join paramount plus. All I want to see is Evil 😭😧
