The Haunting of Bly Manor was a disappointment for me. Thanks 2020. It was watchable, but boring. Even the scares were uninteresting, and hardly at par with the first season which had deliciously creepy scenes. Bly was ok to keep the audience guessing, but eventually the repetitive motions felt too much like fillers. Nine episodes felt like a long walk when it could have easily been told in five. Maybe Hill House set the bar too high, but Mike Flanagan was floundering on this one. Some parts I wondered if the production was writing it on the fly. I think I'll rewatch Hill House again just to clean the palate from Bly's mediocre aftertaste.
