Question The Outsider - SKY Atlantic

Anyone else watching this?

I watched the first two episodes expecting it to be a 'Cop show' - now I've realised it's written by Stephen King - and it's a bit 'supernatural'.

Slow(ish) start, but I'm gonna stick with it.

I've read the book and from what I've heard, it sticks closely to the source material. I don't have Sky Atlantic so I'll not get a chance to watch it. The book was great!

Watched the first episode so far - definitely picking up on some of the 'supernatural' elements.
As mentioned, pace seems a bit slow at the moment, so I'm hoping that perseverance will have its reward down the line.
I have found that Stephen King adaptations can be a bit hit and miss lately, with some absolute turkeys out there. There seems to be the right people involved with the production of this one, so fingers crossed.
