The Fallout series on Amazon is pretty good. We're only 3 eps in, but I like it. FO 1 and 2 are my favorite games ever and they've done a good job with it so far.

Is it really a musical? I want to look forward to it but I hate musicals.

I'm the same as you. Fallout 1, 2, and New Vegas are my favorites in the series. I've been pretty disappointed with what Bethesda has done on their own with the IP, and I've been more disappointed with each new project. I had low expectations going into the show as a result, but I've been pleasantly surprised.

They've stuck to the source material, and the set designs have been very good I thought. The acting isn't superb, but it's adequate for what it is. I think the story has been decent. They've done an excellent job writing a love letter to the fans with the Easter Eggs and references, but they've written the show in such a way that someone can watch and enjoy without needing to play the games previously. They haven't shied away from the gore aspect of the setting, and I'm honestly a bit surprised at the edgey-ness of the show. I thought they might dial a few things back, but they haven't really. I'm 4 episodes in myself, and I'm going to reserve full judgement till the first season is finished, but so far I've been fairly pleased.

I guess the director is the same one that did Westworld, which was also well received by fans. Never saw that, but I think he's done a great job with this show so far.

It's most definitely not a musical, not 4 episodes in anyway.
