    Loved the first three episodes. They were incredibly creepy, and I loved the characters, especially the females who were fantastic. Shirley and Theo are the best tv sisters I've seen in years. The male characters appear pretty useless next to the the women

    Also just saw Ep 8 And literally screamed with shock at one point, and cried with sadness two minutes later. This is a great show. I love all the characters, but Shirley is my girl, followed by Theo. The male characters started off weak and stupid but are slowly getting better. Although Steve needs a punch for doing what he does to his wife.

    Think Theo's my fave. Both are pretty good character/actor wise. Do think that it's kinda girrl powered series, tho. Which is usually a good thing.

    I've heard it's great but I think it is too scary for me. I don't do full on horror.


    I like who I am when Im with him. I like who we are together.

    It is scary, without a doubt. Just watched the last two eps and it was an odd ending. I'd still recommend it, but only watch in daylight

    Thought the series was excellent overall. Agree with Priceless that the finale is a little off. Still a little unsure of how I feel about it...

    All caught up.

    All said regarding writers, producers, actors, directors, viewers, readers, etc. are what I remember, my opinions, etc.





    * I'll re-watch Season 1. I'm not sure what they'll do for Season 1 other than
    Spoiler:
    maybe have another family in Hill House.




    * It's interesting that I don't remember what Ellie's job was, if she had any.



    * I like the touch that the father was relatively 'poor' because
    Spoiler:
    he continued paying the Dudleys and continued paying for the house.




    * It seems
    Spoiler:
    the Bent-Neck Lady 'got better' simply because she needed to to save her family from all being 'eaten' by Hill House.




    * The Haunting of Hill House is certainly horror and scarier than almost all movies and other TV.



    * Controversial, but was Theo
    Spoiler:
    born a lesbian or simply became one because she didn't want someone inside her.




    * It's a good series and I recommend watching it.

    I'm kinda hoping that it'll be a different family in a different era, but not one that was already shown. Pretty much already know how those end up...
    Also they sorta tied up this families' journey up (in an all too pretty little bow).
    As far as yer last point (on Theo). I don't think you really want me commenting on that.

    I agree, I'd like it to be a different family but I think these characters have been so popular, they'll want to keep using them.

    As I watch TV series, I'm noticing how few series I remember all the names of all the important characters.

    This is another one in which I don't remember all the characters' names.

    Eleanor (aka Ellie) Crain aka
    Spoiler:
    The Bent-Neck Lady.


    Theodora (aka Theo) Crain.

    Steven Crain.

    Luke Crain.

    I'm tired, but that's all I came up with.


    Even though "Welcome to the Hellmouth" (B 1.01) isn't the greatest series premiere, you remember all the names of all the important characters.

    "City Of" (A 1.01) doesn't count as much, as there is only one new character and the other 2 had been on BtVS for 3 years.

    The West Wing you remember all the important characters.

    Battlestar Galactica you remember the main characters.

    Smallville you remember all the important characters.

    Gossip Girl you remember all the important characters.

    Some other series too.

    But even a relatively good series like Breaking Bad , I've already forgotten the name of Walter White's wife. The Wire --I've forgotten all the names but Omar Little.

    Theo
    Spoiler:
    was probably going to have sex with her sister's husband. So, she could have 'made the choice' to be a lesbian.

    Mike B, I can't believe you forgot Shirley! She's my favourite character.

    I remembered the BtVS characters straight away because they had such unusual names, Buffy, Willow, Xander, Cordy - I didn't know anyone with those names, and actually I still don't. I know an Alex, but not a Xander. I think Whedon's choice of character names was genius. There is only one 'Buffy', someone mentions a Willow and your mind goes straight to Rosenberg etc.

    I loved Battlestar Galactica, but I can't remember half the character names now. The West Wing i could probably make a good stab at it . . . Jed Bartlett, CJ Craig (?) Never watched Smallville or Gossip Girl.

    Seriously Mike? Did you not see the same show? Theo only touched him to feel something other than utter nothingness. She didn't have to go 'all the way' with him for that.
