    • Jonathan Tucker as Low Key Lyesmith
    • Crispin Glover as Mr. World
    • Cloris Leachman as Zorya Vechernyaya
    • Peter Stormare as Czernobog
    • Chris Obi as Mr. Jacquel

    Wishing this was on Netflix so I can just binge it.

    Was sorry to see Ricky leave The 100, but I guess I can forgive him for this.

    It is on Amazon Prime outside the US, afaik. I'm not sure how Amazon Prime works with VPN though.

    Well, that was a weird fuckin show. But I enjoyed the hell out of it, even if I don't have a clue as to what's going on yet. But I'll take anything from Bryan Fuller and David Slade.

    That was gooooooodddd

    It was good. Bryan Fuller style is perfect for this and I'm glad it's on Starz, they give their showrunners most freedom

    Well, that was something. I read the book when it first came out, and forgot so much of it that it felt like I was watching something new. Which was an interesting experience, because I periodically had flashes of "Oh yeah, that's right!" It certainly held my attention and (amazingly) that of my girlfriend as well, and I've never seen any fictional show hold her focus for a full hour.

    It was certainly filmed in an attention grabbing style - seems like every shot seemed strangely filtered or oddly angled or otherwise "not quite normal." It will be very interesting to see if this show continues to be as odd and stylized as the first episode, or if it trickles back into a more standard TV show model.

    Regardless, I plan on watching the shit out of it.
