Idiots clearly haven't watched it
14 January 2020 | by larryluongoSee all my reviews

The literal stooges givint 3 and 4 stars and commenting about "cop shows" etc etc are literally the dumbest mfers on the planet and obviously couldn't take 2 hours to watch the first two episodes.

Another suggests they don't like it bc it's "impossible" to now solve this.

Are you all really this slow? Or just need to pretend your opinion matters?

ITS BASED ON A STEPHEN KING NOVEL, DO YOU THINK ITS JUST A STRAIGHT UP COP SHOW?
