Yep, loving it. Some of the best Lovecraft themed horror I've seen. Each episode is like a deadly little horror movie that doesn't outstay its welcome.

watched first episode of The Hostages on Sky Documentaries.
it gave the background up to spring 1979 which was informative but very focused on Khomeni's faction.
the huge amounts of Iranian students protesting outside the Whitehouse at the Shah's visit to Carter would not have contained many Khomeni supporters. the Marxists, students and other members of a broad coalition that overthrew the Shah are mentioned but not really discussed.
otherwise it was very good.

Just finished this - had taken a break mid point as some of the gorier ones were too much for the missus.

The last two were savage! such different approaches/look/feel/etc.

I love the whole 'alfred hitchcock presents' type framing at the start.

Hope they do another run of them next year
