I watched the first three as well. Its a documentary of the growth and decline of a real life creepy cult over a ten year period. Apparently remnants of it carry on. It was ironic to hear a NXIVM cult leader disparaging Scientology as a harmful cult when they end up doing similar brainwashing and extortion and worse. Since a filmmaker was involved and actively recording from the start they have tons of footage they want to show. It almost a guide to how to build a cult. I don't know if I can watch all nine episodes of this.

Someone suggested Succession to us so we gave it a look. Hopefully the series is as fantastic as the first episode.

We are about 4 or 5 episodes into The Leftovers. I think several here recommended it. I'm on the fence. Did someone say stick with it?

Rewatched Game Of Thrones season 8 again. Loved it. Don't care what others think, because I think it was wonderful. Great TV series.

Definitely. It does progressively get more interesting, but one must embrace the tune and its eeriness in order to fully enjoy it, me thinks.

Man, episode 4 of The Vow is really getting deep into the organization, and you can really see how seductive this kind of thing could be. Crazy.

The first 5 episodes are among the worst rated episodes in the series. The Holy Wayne episode is when it starts getting good, I think that is Ep6. Stick with it.

succession is outstanding and just keeps getting better and better.

ditto on the leftovers except the early episodes of the leftovers aren't that nearly as good as the later ones.
