Apparently this is shattering viewing records in its first week of release… 189 million views???

I’m only one episode in I’ll probably binge watch the whole thing as I’m sitting at home with Covid..

My oh my is this creepy as hell and the lead actor is really really good…

Evan Peters killed it in this... literally. It's very historically accurate, even down to the outfits. Well worth the watch.

Was waiting for someone else to get the bad juju from starting this thread. Peters is amazing and it’s really well done. The deaf kid episode is especially rough in a series where every episode is rough. Definitely a good show to binge if you’re fasting.

Yeah as really horrific and sad what Dahmer did to his victims. Families of those victims there. Have their own "prison" without parole but instead of bars, they have a lifetime of sadness and tragedy there.

I'm totally going to watch this. I am a silly murder show person (so much so that I scare Chris, lol).

Sorry you have covid, Shane. How you feeling?

It’s a little different then the first go around with it. The first time I had higher fever (103.4) and severe muscle aches. But zero lung issues. This time I have lower fever (100.3) no muscle aches at all really…. But I do have lung/phlegm issues which is the scary part of it…. But so far I’m ok…. Only day 2/3… just staying home alone and medicining/vitamining up and binge watching tv…. Thank you for asking :)

That’s funny that you “scare” Chris lol

I watch these scary shows because it boggles my mind that people can do these things. I think that if I watch enough I can make some sense of it. But I never can.

BTW, I took the winnings from the NFL suicide pool to Vegas and made $600. :)

Hope you are breathing better soon!

Just finished the deaf kid episode. Literally heartbreaking.

I’m slowly getting through this because it’s so difficult to watch honestly. It’s so damn well done it’s scary. I take a break and watch other stuff after each gut wrenching episode.

My wife doesn't like watching docuseries like this based on true stories. Not when it involves real people. She just hates it. So, I will have to watch this after the fam goes to sleep when I get a chance.

If he doesn't, he'll have to sleep in D-back yard.
I made my wife watch The Ring when it came out knowing she doesn't like scary movies. She had nightmares for a couple days. I will never live that down. I learned my lesson. LOL.

You know the old saying, "happy wife, happy there's not a repeat Lorena Bobbitt situation."

I got ten minutes in and decided I didn’t need to watch who knows how many hours of murder porn.

I've watched 2 1/2 episodes and yes it's incredibly creepy, very difficult to watch. It's just so horrifying to know it's a true story.

I still can't get over that neighbor complaining about smell and noises and then it turns out Dahmer is her neighbor and had killed a bunch of people, had a human head in his fridge and had a barrel of acid inside with body parts.

But yeah the lead actor is really good scary good.
