Manx is a supernatural villain who feeds off the souls of children then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland - a twisted place of Manx's imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Vic strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims - without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.

Is this an ongoing series or a limited series?

I haven’t read any Joe Hill novels, but love his comics. This appears to be either connected to or based on Wraith: Welcome to Christmasland, which was excellent.

I didn't know what it meant before Googling it. But once you learn, it's so obvious.

His books have loose connections, just like Kingís does. They are also connecting their own worlds to each otherís in little Easter egg ways. If you pause the first episode when Manx looks at the map youíll see it, and afaik it was identical to the book. The Treehouse of the Mind is from Horns, and of course there was the Lovecraft Portkey on it, referencing Locke & Key. I think the map also references Heart-Shaped Box (it does in the book, at least) but I canít remember the specifics of that. Been too long.

I don't remember much of the book other than I liked it. I liked the first episode here as well. I'm in for the season.

This was a solid beginning even if the premise didn't immediately grab me. Pretty clearly a show driven by female protagonists, which all too often leads down very predictable paths. I'll stick around for the moment.

Ah ok.

I recorded the first ep. That might be more interesting then a standard vampire.

I can't believe people are not getting this?
NOS4A2
[NOS] + [FUH] + [RAA] + [TOO]
Spoiler:
Nosferatu

Watched the first episode. It didn't "grab" me yet. I'll finish it for sure. But I just reserved the audiobook from the library and I think I'll hack through that before continuing.

I finished all 10 episodes and I think this would have worked better as a limited series instead of dragging it on. I read the book and loved it but the show dosent have that same tight creepy feel it did. the cast were good picks and Quinto was my favorite part of the show.

Quinto is great at playing someone evil. The female lead is written like a male character.

AMC is pissing me off. I missed the premiere, it appears Ep 1 wont repeat for the next X weeks that my DVR can see, I got ep 2 and onward but the On-demand version of Episode 1 is gone now from Comcast. No way I am paying for Shudder.... Way to alienate viewers from a new series. I enjoyed the book too but I'm not paying to watch this show when I have no idea if its good or not. [/rant]

I could do with a lot less of the domestic situation, which is fairly repetitive.

I've already started hitting the 30-second skip button whenever mom or dad appear on screen. Not too promising given that it's only the second episode.

I really expected to like this & subscribed to AMC Premiere just to binge. But I just stated Ep 5 & don't think I can make it much further. I remember liking the book somewhat, but the show is just so.....dull. If feels like the story could have been contained in a one hour anthology but they've stretched it out to 10 hrs or something. I think I'm out for this show & for AMC Premiere (which is surprisingly lame for a paid service).
