Mostly because a Wikipedia page isn't allowed to just make stuff up

I don't think that's technically true.

So far it is mildly entertaining. While Kumail Nanjiani is very likeable in the lead role, the person he is based on so far isn't that compelling to center a series around. The people around him have far more interesting stories. That could change. I do like the tension developing between Steve and Nick, his choreographer.

You son of a bitch. I'm in. For at least three episodes. That's our house rule.

Ive been loving this series, if for no other reason the absolute killer soundtrack it has. The song choice, ambient/background music, even the intro theme is phenomenal. The intro starts out as a purely late 70s disco drum loop, then followed by new wave synthesizers and samples that would be used in the 80s and onward. Seems to me they did this to mirror the overall timeline of the show itself, which is pretty brilliant. Not only that but it still manages to sound 'fresh' in its arrangement, and I honestly couldn't resist grooving to it if I heard it while up and about.

But music aside, the acting has been pretty stellar, Kumail is almost unrecognizable, and everything revolving around the choreographer is just fascinating to watch, dancing included. Honestly this show ticks just about every box for me, love it.

Me too, I love it. I was curious to check it out based on the cast alone who I trusted wouldn't want to involved in a sub-par series. Juliette Lewis, Kumail and Bartlett are all top actors and really deliver here.

I’m liking the show very much!

I wish they would state or label where these things are streamed. I often find content that I would like to watch on Reddit but I have no idea where to find it. I have Hulu and Netflix right now. No clue where this show is streamed.

Hulu in the US. Star+ in Latin America. Disney+ everywhere else.

I listened to the podcast about this and am watching the show. Really different vibes. The show makes Steve way more sympathetic - hard to know what he was really like, but the direction he goes down is bananas. I did however feel the inclusion of the murder-suicide was irresponsible because it left out A LOT of backstory there. Like, all of it.

I just started the podcast too — it's called Welcome to Your Fantasy and it's excellent. Doesn't steer away from the dark stuff but manages to be campy and funny at the same time. I checked to see if it has anything to do with the show — like, did the podcaster get paid? — and it doesn't seem like it. The show seems to borrow a lot of real-life characters from it and just give them fake names and slightly different backstories, especially Otis and the Juliette Lewis character.

The f is true crime? Are all other crimes false?

Do you think there's actually a hockey mask killer out there named Jason Voorhees?
