I found that many of the episodes dragged, but for
whatever reason I stuck it out. I guess the "oh well,
it's only ten episodes" factor won me over. Anyway, it
is, for me, a series very much saved by the final
episode- it tied a lot together and packed a helluvan
emotional wallop. It gets a "would recommend, with
reservations" from me.

I also kind of stuck with it... and found the final episode to be the biggest betrayal of the book of all, right down to inverting the 'whatever walked there, walked alone' line that closes the book.

Yeah, I'm curious as to why they didn't just flat out
call it something else. Why bother going with the Hill
House name at all? I'm sure the "fans of the book"
demographic that would check it out based on the title
wouldn't even be a blip on a blip of the ratings radar.
