So, is anyone watching this? I've seen some buzz about it being just "too disturbing to finish."

I accept that challenge.

And maybe that is a brilliant marketing strategy and I'm a sucker born on a certain minute.

The P.R. department got together and said, "have all your friends twit and facebore the hell out of this thing being disturbing and we'll get the viewing numbers!"

I'm going to fall for the bait and try it out.

I'll take the challenge with you! I'm kind of a sucker like that, too, and I haven't picked a new viewing binge yet. :biggrin2:

Okay, I watched the entire series over the weekend. It held my attention quite well. There were a few disturbing parts, and I wasn't expecting the ending.
It was definitely different, and I enjoyed it.

It was entertaining enough.

I think this "it's too disturbing to finish" was crap. While it has some uncomfortable moments, I personally didn't find it so disturbing.

I guess my "you be f**ked up" level is set to eleven. I ain't no novice three. Horror and disturbance ain't for p***ies, brah.

I'm glad the episodes were quick, otherwise I'm not sure I would have hung in there with the story. Suspend disbelief and go for the ride and it's not bad.

I loved the Netherlands setting.

I think my level must be set to "desensitized". While I can understand how some folks might find a couple of scenes disturbing, I didn't have any trouble sleeping or finishing the series.
I'm not sure I completely understood the ending, but I guess I got the gist of it.

I read there might be a season 2 so I'm guessing they were holding back for that possibility.

I want to know who the old lady is. There are youtubes on this show where people throw out their thoughts and ideas. Interesting.
