    I actually watched it last night because apparently I still have AMC premium, but I'm gonna wait until after it shows tonight to throw in my thoughts.

    Just watched the cold open.  I'm 100% in.  This got me from the first scene.
    So glad this anthology series is back.  Also so happy to see George Takei in a role that has so much personal connection to his family.

    I like the atmosphere they set from the beginning.  It's moving pretty quickly on getting into the story IMO.

    Loving it so far. It has all the right ingredients - the historical, the horror and the drama.

    Loved the premiere.  I read somewhere from one of the show runners or writers that they were paying homage to Japanese horror genre, which I'm a big fan of.  So just like Stranger Things paying homage to some of the 80's horror greats, I think it is to be understood that these are intentional tips of the hat and not seen as tropey.

    I first got hooked on Japanese horror through Ringu.  I randomly picked it up at the video rental store like "what the fuck? this looks cool. why not?"  2002 before twitter and YouTube so I had no heads up about what I was about to see.  When Sadako crawled through the TV I lost my shit. That was the scariest thing I had seen and I was alone in a dark room watching on a big square CRT TV.  Since then I have collected all that stuff.  I have DVD's of Ringu 1& 2, Ju-On 1 & 2, Dark Water, Premonition, etc.  So I'm stoked for this season.  I'm really rooting for it to be good.
