I've enjoyed it. Felt real bad for Jason Bateman. I wonder if anything like this (ignoring the supernatural aspect of course) has actually happened, where there was indisputable evidence of somebody committing a crime while conflicting evidence showed they were innocent?

So for anyone who hasn't read Stephen King's book, any theories? Some sort of shapeshifter or clone? Why would it go to such a great extent to be seen on multiple cameras? Was it trying to frame Terry specifically and just didn't expect him to be caught on camera elsewhere at the same time as the murder? If it needed to "feed" or whatever, why not just do so then try to hide?

I read the book and I've watched the first ep. I've typed and deleted something 6 times wanting to avoid spoilers. I At the end, ask me about the first episode.

I've read the book, and they've made Ralph and the DA a lot more likable in the show

Really good first four episodes. Really slow 5th, except for Ralph’s wife’s scene with the broken glass

^ yeah, I say this without knowing the source material, so I really don’t know how much story is left to tell, but im beginning to think 8 episodes may have been better than 10

A long leisurely breakfast (also prob unnecessary) but the only way to get a scratch in is a nice fuck session. Silly.

If it had just been the breakfast, I could see viewers being confused whether it was with the actual person or the doppelgänger. Showing them fucking while she was saying she doesn’t remember meeting anyone special (and also think she said she was a lesbian) really hammered home that it wasn’t actually her.

"i blew off the breakfast."
Next scene: breakfast

Confusing?

You shouldn't have to do an out of character scene to keep the viewer on board.

I like this show but ep 4 was alot of filler and added plot to really hammer home the point. Maybe I'm just being "book guy" though.

Out of character? We barely know the two characters that were involved in it. No way of knowing if it were out of character.

One thing that did stand out though-- when Holly was talking to the woman in the prison, it is oddly convenient that the older lady just so happened to be there at the exact right time to overhear her conversation and not only know of this doppelganger creature, but actually think that it is real.

I guess the scene didn’t really stand out to me, honestly took me a few minutes after reading your post to remember it and which characters were involved.

I agree with the filler thing, you can see a few posts up I said I think this may have been better as an 8 episode series rather than ten. Although overall I am still quite enjoying it.

One thing I did find odd (and almost suspicious) was how quickly the mall security dude seemed to fall head over heels for Holly, it was like as soon as he pulled up to her in the parking lot he was obsessed. I also hope they address why the detective dude had to buy the creature home goods/desk lamps

^yeah that shit was pretty eye roll worthy too

^^I'll take the fifth on the first part bc I haven't seen the two most recent eps

As for the second part, I agree, exposition that could have been given by another character

Man Ralph seems like waaayyyy more of a dick in the show. He's so totally dismissive of his wife and Holly. Maybe I'm not remembering the book well enough I don't know.
