    Anybody check this out?

    The Outsider is an adaptation of a Stephen King novel about a high school teacher/Little League coach named Terry Maitland (Jason Bateman) in a small Georgia town who is accused of heinously murdering one of the small boys he coaches. When Detective Ralph Anderson (Ben Mendelsohn) is satisfied with the evidence, he decides to have Terry arrested in front of the entire town while coaching a game and this solidifies Terry's status among his peers. What follows is a confounding mystery with what might be a supernatural twist...?

    Only 2 episodes have airred so far but at the end of ep 2 we had kind of a WTF moment. It's a bit of a slow burn but I think it's on track to be pretty good. I understand that the recently Oscar nominated Cynthia Erivo will make her appearance next episode.
