I'll give the show's production design and atmosphere major kudos, far more stylish than other AMC programs.

Wow, just watched the first two episodes since the entire first season has ended and it's fantastic. They totally went from making Louis and Lestat's relationship implicit to explicit. Bogosian was also fantastic and I've yet to get to episode 3. I'm binging it now, though.

So far, it's doing enough of its own thing to distinguish itself from the source material and film, but keeping just a bit to still have identify with the property.

One of the funniest scenes I was not expecting was in the first episode and it was about going in the backdoor without asking first. No, it's not what you think, but the dialogue involving it was hysterical and the actress was hilarious.

Should this be released on 4K disc I will buy it. The HD stream is stellar.

Just watched the season finale and that character is not who I thought he was. Well done.

AMC struck a deal with Warner to allow this series to have a limited run on MAX from 9/1-10/31.
Making up for lack of new content on HBO. I might have to check this one out.

It's pretty watchable if you ignore the changes they've made from the book.

Interestingly, a lot of current AMC shows are also up on Hoopla to borrow. A surprising amount of shows in fact.

Renewed my AMC+ subscription and binged season two today. It was awesome and they did tweak events around, which was surprising but still cool. Will definitely be getting the Blu-ray set when it' released. Ben Daniels was awesome, as well.

I hope it gets a season 3, because they hinted at certain things that happen/happened in The Vampire Lestat novel.

Season two was a big improvement. Actually sort of enjoyed most of this. The New Orleans drama from last season wasn't terribly interesting, but the Theatre des Vampires stuff was pretty good even if it was greatly expanded from the novel.

Hopefully next season, when they presumably adapt The Vampire Lestat, it will stick closely to the novel. The dates on Nicolas' coffin would seem to indicate this.
