Episode One: Severance

Putting the rushed start, and the cheap, and useless, jump scares aside. This pilot promises everything Stephen King fan would expect; creepy mysterious characters, gripping story, intense atmosphere, and masterful way the plot unfolds to reveal a new thing that makes you even more engaged and thrilled while you're already on the edge of your seat.
