    My husband loves the book, the original miniseries, and he named our dog Frannie, so we'll be watching and judging lol. I'm not thrilled at having to sign up and pay for CBS All Access though. CNN

    Huge fan of the book and miniseries as well. Not promising that they made Larry black as well as gender swapping one of the characters to be female

    Also noticed they intentionally left out Amber Heard as much as possible

    Yeah all of this is just unnecessary. I also wasn't going to watch this because of Amber Heard, she is a terrible actress and person, but I have nothing better lined up to watch, so there's that. I hate how they are redoing everything in "woke" fashion. Write some new stories for your "woke" nation. lol

    Watched the first episode last night and it was pretty bad. It starts in the middle and is then a jumbled mess of flashbacks and flashbacks within flashbacks. You know...artsy crap. So far, a lot of reviews are negative and the deaf community is boycotting because the actor who will portray Nick isn't deaf. Not to mention the people who say they are boycotting because Amber Heard and Whoopi are in it lol. What a disaster but hey....its par for the course this year. I don't know if I'll watch the next 8 episodes.

    I read that it was pretty bad so decided not to watch.

    I completely forgot about this. Surprised its being broadcast with everything that's going on. Sounds like I should stick to the 1990s version.

    It's not great, that's for sure. I don't like the back and forth time jumping. I don't look forward to Amber Heard, she's an awful actress. Marilyn Manson's song and character was cut from the show. Did you notice this is season 1? Guess that means there will be a season 2?
