I never did see the movie but I'm looking forward to this. Looks very intriguing.

I watched four episodes last night. It's pretty involving.

Its set in the same world of escorts as Secret Diary of a Call Girl yes.

I had no idea the lead was Elvis' grandaughter lol!

This show is like the female "Mr. Robot." The overall tone is similar and the main characters remind me so much of each other.

It's pretty engrossing. Episode 6 was super creepy and the best one yet.

Episode 9 was STUNNING. Riley Keough is delivering an absolutely magnetic performance in this.

So, does this have a story arc over the entire season or is it more of an episodic nature?

It's very serialized, and there's a major arc that comes to a head in episodes 8-9 that set the course for the final stretch.

It's smart of Starz to release the entire series at once. It's very bingeable and most of the episodes end on cliffhangers.

Well it is what you pay for

I feel like Hung and that USA show already kind of killed the appeal of this show. Plus no Sasha

This will be coming back for a second season of 14 episodes with a new cast and plotline.

Well hopefully they get a better lead for the next season, because I wasn't feeling the lead chick from the first season at all. She was so monotone and bitchy and I still don't understand why guys were so attracted to her.

I dug the dark/creepy atmosphere though.

I started the second season of this today - the way they have it set up on the Starz app is you can watch the two storylines separately so I started with the one with Carmen Ejogo.

It's absolutely fantastic and tense as hell. And Ejogo is brilliant. I've watched 5 of her episodes so far.

The Carmen Ejojo storyline was easily my favorite segment of this season. I honestly would have preferred it if we got half hour or even hour long episodes with her character, because the storyline with the lesbians was just boring and tedious IMO. It felt like nothing, but empty softcore porn most of the time and I didn't care for either of the main characters.

Yeah, I'm three episodes into the lesbian one and find myself missing the Ejogo plotline. This one isn't nearly as engaging. Also, the nudity and sex scenes feel a lot more gratuitous in this storyline.

Just watched the entirety of the third season. This show always has a way of drawing me in. Love the atmosphere, mood and sense of dread that exists in every scene. Really liked season three and thought it was super interesting, the ending was pretty dark.

I never ended up watching this but loved Riley Keough in Zola so plan on watching the first season soon.
