    Between this and The First Purge, we're on Purge overload this year. Thanks Trump!

    I for one love the Purge films looking forward to the 1st Purge on July 4! The TV series not so much just like Chucky getting a TV series I'd rather have another movie. But hey ash vs evil dead is amazing but it ended after 3 seasons.

    The series that should be over keeps going. I won't watch these anymore. Not the TV show or the origin movie.

    Premieres tonight at 10PM. Same time slot as the Mayans MC premiere, so I doubt it will do very well.

    Anyone watch the premiere last night?

    The first episode is pretty much the two hours before the start of the Purge, with the Purge kicking off in the last ten minutes.

    It doesn't seem like they're exploring anything beyond what we've seen in the movies. All the character set-ups so far have all been identical to ones we've already seen. So basically, it's more of the same, only with a made-for-TV aesthetic.

    Seems fun though. If you enjoy the movies, I can't imagine you wouldn't like it.


    Also, one of the leads is from the excellent indie horror What Keeps You Alive, which is currently OnDemand. Her boyfriend is the lead from Blumhouse's Unfriended: Dark Web, so they're keeping it in the Blumhouse family.

    Saw the first episode. It was pretty good, like you said it was just a set up leading to the Purge. I have the second ep on my DVR waiting to be watched. Probably get to that soon. Lot of people saying the series is shaping up to be better than the movies. Plenty of time to develop characters. We'll see, it's still early.

    I hope it doesn’t fall into the soap opera trap, like most other horror/genre shows seems to do these days.

    Episode 1 was a fun set-up, but episodes 2 & 3 have been a huge bore.

    Hope the show starts heading somewhere soon.

    Just ahead of tonight's season finale, The Purge has been renewed for season two.

    I thought a majority of this season was pretty boring, but I did really enjoy episode 9, which ridiculously ties all of our main characters together. For the most part, there's no reason this entire season couldn't have been just a normal two-hour Purge movie. Hopefully season two will take advantage of the format.

    So... that's over.

    I liked episode 1 and episode 9. The rest was pretty meh.

    I hope season two will follow a new group of characters, because they killed off the most interesting character here. The rest are all pretty boring.
