I watched the first episode of Ratched last night and really didn't like it, hated it actually. Has anyone else watched it and know if it gets any better?
We've been watching it. It's ok. The visuals and sets are class, just a bit, and I hate saying this, to woke for it's own good.

I didn't pick that up off it. I thought the whole thing was really over stylized.
It looks great but an interesting, and believable character from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest as a Machiavellian serial killer....nah

It's too detached from reality in every way

Maybe if I could detach it from the source material I might enjoy it more but it had the same effect on me as American Horror Story- too much style over substance, and then I read that it's by the same creator.

So no, not for me.

The last time I saw Cuckoo's nest I came out of it thinking that there's probably a more nuanced and sympathetic reading on the character than the traditional one, especially in the light of woman's experiences being heard more, but when I saw the trailer for that I assumed that they didn't even remotely go near that. Have I assumed right? It'd be a shame as I generally think Sarah Paulson is good in everything she does

Yeah, I thought the same thing. I just couldn't get past the idea that they were doing that thing that Hollywood's been doing for the last few years of trying to sell something to people by wrapping it up in a familiar package to make it more palatable.

Anyways, didn't do it for me. And I liked the first season of American Horror story when I saw it.

Re-watching season 1 of The Walking Dead. God be with the days when it was good. I plan to re-watch seasons 1 and 2 (and might stretch to 3). It went to shite after that.
I persevered until season 7 I think, but only out of some weird sense of loyalty. It had such great potential but man it got so boring.
