looking forward to this. i've really been looking for an excuse to cancel HBO since GoT ended, but just when i thought i was out, they pull me back in.
i'm always down for some Lovecraft-inspired entertainment. and the focus on Jim Crow southern racism seems like a cleverly appropriate modern approach to this material given Lovecraft's own virulent racism.

HBO kills it again. The first episode was fantastic, holy shit it was good. feels like the proper horror accompaniment to the Watchman series on HBO.

Recording this as well with the plan to watch it when it's done. I really like the idea of sort of "race flipping" a standard H.P. Lovecraft story, where the civilized white explorers would be introduced to existential horror by encountering savage locals. It's like a loving tribute and a middle finger to his legacy at the same time.

this show is fucking GREAT. 4 episodes in.....episode 4 was like some kind of Goonies/Raiders of the Lost Ark twist on the whole racially flipped Lovecraft supernatural theme they are working within. fucking fantastic
