This is pretty good. Slow burn...creepy as hell. Great acting everywhere.

Yep the gravesite scene with his wife asking him if he stripped everything away, what did his gut say, was gold as well.

Definitely has a True Detective feel but the quality of some of these scenes has me flashings back to Breaking Bad cancer scenes. Like when Walt gets his diagnosis then tells the doc he's got a mustard stain on his shirt. Really good stuff going on here.

Totally agree. Bateman is a terrific actor.

I was watching a detective show, and the 3rd episode turned into the X-Files. Definitely some weird shit going on!!

Watched the first 2 episodes last night and X-Files is exactly the vibe I've drawn so far. A labyrinth of stories with no conclusion or closure on the story you just invested a portion of your life viewing. Like having to eat your breakfast cornflakes one at time and never feeling full.

I've learned to despise the X-Files.

This show is where I thought True Detective (S01) was going until I watched episode 4 or 5.

I am quite intrigued to see how The Outsider will wrap up this season. There is a lot going on, but nothing seems wasted or filler yet. However, It's easier to tell that at the conclusion of a story.

Watched episode 4 tonight. The director likes to introduce new characters before you know what their importance is, then springs them into action. So we have a trail of 3 people starting with the female in NYC, why she lied about having sex with person #2 I don't understand. The new detective with the strange abilities does make it interesting, in fact they are making the show about her and forgetting the cops in Georgia, except for the one that went hunting. We now know there is some ugly freak in a black hoodie responsible for all this mayhem, I guess he is the devil and it's not really about aliens. This is not a spoiler, because it almost too hard to figure out even if your watching.

I'm not overly versed in the entirety of the matter, partially out of desire to enjoy the show, but;

Spoiler!

I could see her spinning off into a new HBO series.

If you are sufficiently intrigued, this is an existing narrative that has someone else providing another interpretation of the character and milieu.
