Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel of the same name, The Outsider follows a seemingly straightforward investigation into the gruesome murder of a young boy. The crime, however, leads a seasoned cop and an unorthodox investigator to question everything they believe to be real, as an insidious supernatural force edges its way into the case.

I've planned to check it out, and with its great initial IMDb rating I'll do that for sure! smile

I'm really loving this series so far. ❤️

I haven't read the source material, so I can’t speak to its quality as an adaptation, but I can say that The Outsider is one creepy-as-hell detective story that does indeed have that True Detective vibe to it with a special kind of twist. I know it's still early (only 2 episodes in) but I can confidently say that this one's a definite keeper.

I really like how they're playing this so straight, adds to the mystery.

Which actress and why? I thought that character was played perfectly. smile

Edit:
Holly Gibney on The Outsider: How does HBO series tie into Mr. Mercedes?

While I totally enjoy The Outsider, I decided I won't watch Mr. Mercedes after just watching the trailer.

Ok, ahahahahahaha, you're right, not everyone is, lol!

It's just that first 3 books of Mr. Mercedes are followed by this one standalone The Outsider hence Holly Gibney is ought to be the same that's all!

Ah well, since both shows are by different teams, I don't mind their choices. smile

Re: The Outsider [Crime, Drama, Mystery]

Again, in 1x04, they manage to reveal almost nothing while keeping the story interesting. smile

What I didn't get (fully):

+ show spoiler

The woman in jail claims that he never had a breakfast date (or more) with the prisoner shown in 1x3, but the flashback scenes show that not only did she meet him for breakfast, they had sex afterwards, with his back bleeding. She's making that claim even though she is to benefit if the doppelgänger theory gets substantiated, which her claim makes less likely. I'm curious how that'll be used in future episodes. I have a theory... we'll see! smile
