One-line Reviews (147)

Engaging.

Good acting, good story telling - steady speed throughout, stays gripping and good suspense throughout.

While I will not spoil the course of the story, Chambers touches upon many intriguing concepts: cult behavior, narcissism, drug addiction, spiritualism (particularly related to Native American culture), possession, anxiety, and the paranormal.

Boring .

My advise stick it out if you feel it's slow.

WASTE OF TIME .

If you are going to be a slow series, it must have a good story line and good acting.

The premise of the show is intriguing and the horror elements are used well to build tension and develop the characters.

I loved Bloodline, which is an extremely slow burn thriller.

I actually fell asleep not 15 min into the last episode and didn't even bother to attempt to go back and watch.

Boring even when it's not predictable.

This was definitely a "slow burn.

Total waste of time.

Okay show, boring ending .

Slow but good, watched it in two evenings, very enjoyable, and at some moments, maybe 5 times my hair on the arms stood straight up with delightful horror.

Worth a watch if you're bored.

This was so painfully slow, and to get away with this pace the characters need to be likeable and have depth.

The characters are wholly unlikable and in an uninteresting way.

That's what is so great about mystery, it's intriguing.

It's worth the watch.

I get slow burn shows, I love slow burn shows, but this is so slow, it went backwards.

Show started out good, kept my interest, then slowly, but surely, got silly and boring.

The slow burn was great.

The episodes came boring..with no actual development in charachters.

And a bit confusing at time.

So I see all these great reviews and I feel like it's some overly pretentious person who walks into an art gallery and sees an elaborately painted scene and dismisses it as mediocre, then strolls over to a plain white canvas with a single red dot in the center, then raves how brilliant it is!!

The narrative of the show is disjointed which adds to the idea of the shared heart of Sasha and Becky.

Boring and dull .

This oversight is indicative of the disjointed nature of the show!

Slow boring mess .

I wont go into details or ruin anything, but it keeps you guessing, and the ending was very unexpected.

Worth the watch .

Very slow, heavy to watch.

As a 3 episode mini series Chambers would h as ve been great but as a 10 episode season it's just dull with flashes of style and horror and tension.

An engaging first few episodes quickly slides into moody, melodramatic, nauseating supernatural-murder-by-numbers.

Uma Thurman played her part well and is what got me through the boring parts.

It was suspenseful and had a good story line.

The ending seemed very last minute and contrived.

It's a bit slow and characters are a bit all over the place.

That alone is an intriguing dynamic to watch- no need for the extra confusing crap they throw in there.

" But it's kind of boring.

Boring .

Rather slow sequence of events.

The main actress is as boring to watch as it is to watch pain dry, and her acting ability is as deep as a shallow pond.

The OA is another great slow burn adventure.

It was such a mess and a boring one at that.

People complaining that its a slow burner, guys it takes some time to build a story.

This show was too slow and very anticlimactic.

I really enjoyed it because it was nothing like I expected it to be.

Give it 2 or 3 episodes to get sucked in, it's worth the slow start.

The plot seemed interesting - as the writers threw in everything that could make it as thrilling and tense as possible.

Don't waste your time...

Just long , messy and boring .

Confusing (not in a good way), weird dialogue, strange vibe and a lot of questionable overreactions by characters that make zero sense.

There were too many times during the first season where I found myself losing focus due to her monotone acting.

Over pretentious wannabe fusion of stranger things and 13 reasons why .

At the beginning is good but then is slow, boring and confusing.

At points you start to loose interest because it gets really slow and makes no sense.

Good chance for a lot of new actors to shine, but it was uninspiring and misinterpreted, and even a big name like Uma Thurman couldn't wake up the slumber this one went into.

Interesting but slow .

Some of the plot was obvious, some over done tropes, but there was a sense of having no idea what exactly happened to Becky, and who did it (although most of my guesses ended up being correct), so it kept me guessing, and there was enough original material to make it worth the watch.

Engaging thriller that holds all the way through .

Bingeable slow burner .

I just couldn't go on after the first episode, just bland.

When I saw that Uma Thurman was in this series, The first thing I thought about was the movie "Pulp Fiction" uma And Travolta We're the stars of that, Ok this series is pretty slow.....

Uma was the standout performance and also her character was the most intriguing.

Sounds really cliche to me.

Those things aside I really enjoyed it, especially episode 8, it was filmed brilliantly to give the feeling of each character.

I wanted my time spent on this back, just like when I watched season 1 of The OA, similarly slow and too many loose, non capturing ends.

Definitely worth the watch, can't wait for Season 2!

Engrossing .

That said it's entertaining and constantly changing works of nuttiness.

The leading actress is so dull and monotone.

Slow and boring .

Don't waste your time.. .

As everyone said it's a slow burn which isn't a bad thing.

For slow burn horror to work, the atmosphere and tension need to be relentless, slowly creeping under your skin and gradually building to a climax whilst scattering moments of interest throughout to keep viewers invested; Chambers does none of this, instead resorting to predictable and underwhelming scares within a central mystery that loves to just spout exposition instead of showing audiences - after all, it's a horror series rated Adult so it shouldn't need to skimp on the grisly details.

Another tedious series labeled as "original".

The first episodes was good, then I got bored for a few episodes and thought that I should watch the two remaning episodes when I suffered through the 6 boring ones.

Boring .

Really bad and predictable story telling and had no clue what they were trying to convey in the last 2 episodes.

The characters are also bland and lifeless.

Overall, if you like suspenseful, supernatural and mystery themes in television, I recommend giving this show a try.

The long wait is worth the conclusion and the acting shines even against a plot with some tough spots and repetitive ideas.

Whilst this movie was a slow burn from the start, it seemed quite original and kept my interest.

Entertaining at best .

And on top of all that, the show is thrilling and beautifully shot.

This should have been a 5-6 episodes story, big waste of time !

Painfully slow .

Highly recommend it

Boring as hell.

This series is the best I've seen in a long time, yes it starts out a bit slow and strange but it is very exciting at the same time and if you give yourself time to watch it, I promise you that you are in for an experience.

All the reviews for This show seem to say how slow it is!

Plot is intriguing and moves along without slowly dragging the story out.

The show is far too drawn out and goes off on a tangent towards the end, obviously aiming to set up another season.

It is boring and very slow.

It was interesting and I loved Uma, the serie had a lot of potential but it was a waste of time with that ending.

Excellent show, a bit slow to start though.

Except that, movie actually is boring, another strange Netflix series.

It's a slow burner.

Too often people wanted to see some actions or scare jump, but this series managed to make it so suspenseful without the typical horror elements.

Teenagers in focus as victims of power mad adults involved in a megarich "treatment"-oriented cabal, then as investigators, then as interventionists, & then as rescuers (because adults are sooo sucky) is also becoming very played out & is such a bag of overused, boring ideas.

The contrived storyline does not help either, despite having some cool production values.

Boring.

I enjoyed it .

Smart and intense thriller with an amazing cast .

Gripping and unsettling .

It was different it was exciting and it kept you on your feet wondering what was going to happen next.

Disappointed and bored .

Slower than an asthmatic ant with heavy shopping.

I found the last couple of episodes very boring and uninteresting, and only watched them to find out what happens in the end- I wish I hadn't bothered.

Hands down one of the slowest, most boring, pointless shows ever.

The plot is droll, inventive, thrilling, psychedelic, creepy, cathartic, mysterious and has an ambiguous ending.

It's SUUUPER slow with a lot of build up with NO PAY OFF at the end!

Some will feel the pacing of the show is slow at times, which will inevitably hinder the show's overall ratings.

Well put together, great acting, intriguing This is a really good series!!!

The end of every episode had me wanting more, with thrilling/scary bits at the end of every episode.

It is very entertaining show and much better than hounted house on the hill or something.

There is a massive difference between "slow burn" and "bland", and this latest Netflox series is certainly the latter.

The twists are unpredictable and keeps your attention drawn in.

but it has weak, repetitive, empty dialogue, & characters doing a lot of aimless things that go nowhere, as well as seeing hallucination montages that explain virtually nothing.

It goes pretty slow and actually nothing happens there.

Overall, I think this show has a strong promise and story worth watching.

I love slow paced unique stories.

I was bored the first 3rd, then things go nuts and the show ends in a fascinating way.

The show is interesting, albeit a bit slow.

Slow.. pretty boring.. .

The story is well built up, lots of cliche horror movie hints, which i enjoy.

This one dragged hard in the beginning.

Don't waste ur time..you will not get that time back EVER!

If you're reading this review trying to gauge whether Chambers is worth watching in its incomplete state, I'd say yes.

Felt it detracted from it maybe bc it was too drawn out or the actress couldn't hold the role...

it is slow and subtle, building up what is intended to be a complex character study post traumatic experience.

They could have done a lot more with the intense storyline they created.

Once the boring girl somehow completely turned back into the blonde girl, I knew I was done.

Regardless- as empty as you may feel in the end (or fulfilled) just the glimpse of both lives is entertaining on its own.

I absolutely love the slow pace and intensity.

Too slow, too vague, drags things out & takes too long to tell an uneven, psuedo-mystical, uninteresting/uninventive story.

My wife and I both enjoyed it.

Useless, waste of time.

Enjoyable show!

It's slow with well thought out sound design and cinematography, none of which adds to (or detracts from) the plot.

I am a fan of slow burners, which generally don't get green lit so I had no issues starting this one up and seeing where it led.

Nice horror series with this new idea, but, the sequence of events was rather slow.

The story is thrilling and entertaining.

If you like good, slow, psychological horror and suspense, with some supernatural elements, I must recommend Chambers.

But seriously, it is so boring and I don't like any of the characters, especially the main character.
