Boring .

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.

Total waste of time.

Painfully slow .

It was suspenseful and had a good story line.

Bingeable slow burner .

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

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

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

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

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

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

Slow boring mess .

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

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

Disappointed and bored .

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.

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

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

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

WASTE OF TIME .

I love slow paced unique stories.

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.

Very slow, heavy to watch.

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

This one dragged hard in the beginning.

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

Boring .

The leading actress is so dull and monotone.

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

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 even when it's not predictable.

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.

This was definitely a "slow burn.

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

Just long , messy and boring .

Rather slow sequence of events.

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

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

It is boring and very slow.

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

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

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

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

Another tedious series labeled as "original".

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.

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

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

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.

Highly recommend it

Okay show, boring ending .

Enjoyable show!

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.

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

Boring as hell.

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

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

Gripping and unsettling .

It's worth the watch.

The OA is another great slow burn adventure.

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

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

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

This show was too slow and very anticlimactic.

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

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

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.....

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.

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

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

The characters are also bland and lifeless.

I enjoyed it .

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

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.

The characters are wholly unlikable and in an uninteresting way.

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

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

Entertaining at best .

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

The ending seemed very last minute and contrived.

Slow and boring .

Don't waste your time...

Boring .

Sounds really cliche to me.

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!!

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.

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

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

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

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

Engaging thriller that holds all the way through .

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

Smart and intense thriller with an amazing cast .

Engrossing .

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

It's a slow burner.

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

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

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

" But it's kind of boring.

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

Slow.. pretty boring.. .

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

My wife and I both enjoyed it.

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.

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

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

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

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

I absolutely love the slow pace and intensity.

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

Interesting but slow .

The twists are unpredictable and keeps your attention drawn in.

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

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

Slower than an asthmatic ant with heavy shopping.

And a bit confusing at time.

Excellent show, a bit slow to start though.

Don't waste your time.. .

Worth the watch .

Worth a watch if you're bored.

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

It goes pretty slow and actually nothing happens there.

Engaging.

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

The show is interesting, albeit a bit slow.

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

Boring.

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

The story is thrilling and entertaining.

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

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

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

Boring and dull .
