Anybody watching this? It's on MGM+ which...until a suggestion from Amazon, I didn't know existed. I'm watching it on a 7 day free trial because I'm not about to spend money for yet another streaming service.

I'm digging it so far. Reviews are pretty dead-on - it's Lost f-bombs.

What does "it's Lost f-bombs" mean?

You mean the show "Lost" but with f-bombs?

Yea, sorry, when I saw that it was too late to go back and correct it. Lost with f-bombs.

So I just finished season 1. I really liked it, but I'm a little disappointed because in true Lost fashion, you end up with more new questions than answers.

And for a show on a streamer, it's a gamble because these shows get cancelled if you look at them the wrong way.

I've been going through Season 1, only a few episodes left and I'm liking it so far. The thing I love about shows like this is that I like to think about what I'd do if I were in situations like this.

One thing that kind of surprises me is that the asshole software company owner and the main dad guy seem to be the only ones that have attempted to approach this problem from a scientific/logical standpoint. Maybe they'll address it later, but why hasn't anyone at least mapped out the border of the town where it "resets"? Is it a circle/dome? Have any of them tried to hunt the vampires/monsters in the day?

Season 2 addresses a lot of this from the start

A few other mysteries pop up.

I'm really worried this is going to be like Lost with the resolutions, but I really like this show.

A larger topic - I'm getting more and more worried about getting invested in shows like this where streamers seem to randomly cancel shows at any time. Investing 8 or 10 hours into a show and getting to really like it, getting to know the characters, only to have the show cancelled after one season - it's frustrating.

^Yep, that was exactly what happened with 1899. I thought that was a really good show and after finishing Season 1 I was pumped for a few more seasons of mystery and reveals, only for Netflix to cancel it like a month later.

Completely agree. The latest casualty of this was FX's Kindred, which I thought was an absolute awesome first season with a huge cliffhanger and it was canceled unceremoniously. A real shame too.

I want to watch Season 2, but is there anything else on MGM+ worth burning a monthly subscription? We've already resubscribed to Starz for Outlander.
