    Haven’t seen a post about it yet, but since it came out on Friday, figured a few people may be watching.

    I love this series, and I am probably in the minority on this board. Season 1 started as a slow burn but picked up quickly in those last few episodes. Season 2, I thought, was strong and lead the family down a deeper rabbit hole. Kyle Chandler’s performance on this series has been so good, and Mendleson (while I didn’t think he deserved a win for Season 2) was a great foe.

    So far (and I’m only on episode 6), this season has been just as a strong. The first three episodes moved insanely fast with the cover-up, and FINALLY, Sissy Spacek has Emmy-worthy material!

    I too am on the sixth episode at this point and, while I’m delighted to indeed see Spacek have some meaty material to chew on, the season otherwise isn’t much resonating with me. Terrific acting but boy, this thing moves like molasses at times.

    I was very hesitant of season 3 because I felt season 2 was sooooooooooo slow. I felt like this def. should have been a one-season show. However, this season has been really great. It is on par, if not better than, season 1. It’s a shame that it will not be on the Emmy radar this year. Sissy Spacek is a revelation in “Part 30.” What a damn amazing performance. Norbert Leo Butz is underappreciated as well. Meg (Linda Cardellini) is the only smart one, getting away from this fucked up family. I absolutely detest the Rayburns, save Meg. They are horrible people. And they get away with whatever they want. It is kind of a perfect show for society right now. People getting away with all kinds of shit because of their ties and who they know and how to work the system. Chloe Sevigny has been amazing this season, too.

    I have three eppies left. Will be sad to see it go.

    Chloe Sevigny has been amazing this season, too.

    Is she guest-eligible? She was only one episode off last season.

    She is in the main credits and has been in every episode (save a couple) this season.

    I think people need to watch out for Kyle Chandler staying in Lead Actor in a Drama Series. “Part 32” is pure, pure, PURE Emmy-bait. And it was horrid. Reminded me of “Fly” (“Breaking Bad”) and “That’s My Dog” (“Six Feet Under”), both episode of which I also hated. With so many loose ends and such with only TWO episodes left, they wasted one with…THAT? It was intriguing at first, but it fell flat. HOWEVER, Kyle Chandler is in EVERY frame. He is a favorite at the Emmys. They could just blind vote and check him off again. If he submits “Part 32,” he could actually WIN.

    I still cannot get over Sissy Spacek in “Part 30.” What an amazing performance. All of those I know who have finished this season were so excited for a fourth, and I told them it was not coming back. It’s done. That makes me believe that there is not a lot of closure in the series finale.

    Indeed, I think folks need to prepare for the very real possibility that Chandler upsets for the win.

    Short thoughts on the season:

    This was the weakest of the three seasons. The first three or four episodes dragged on a little too long. The pace picked up on in the latter half of the season, but there were a lot of subplots that went nowhere and characters who were either underutilized (e.g. Meg, Diana) or made almost no impact on the main storylines whatsoever (e.g. Ozzy, Nolan).

    On the plus side, the performances remained as great as ever. To no surprise, Kyle Chandler was once again given the best material and thus delivered accordingly. He definitely deserves a nomination and/or win. I agree with Shawn’s post above: “Part 32” is a made-for-Emmy episode for Chandler, even more than his previous two submissions (“Part 12” & “Part 23”). He’s in every scene and goes through almost the entire emotional spectrum. If episodes even matter, even a little, watch out.

    In addition, Norbert Leo Butz, Chloe Sevigny, and Sissy Spacek (the latter two were underutilized previously) all got great material this season and turned in their best work of the series. Nominations for all three would be deserved. I’m not quite sure on episode choices for Butz & Sevigny, but “Part 30” is the obvious choice for Spacek. Her speech in the latter half of the episode is riveting.

    Overall, I’m glad the show got to end on its terms. I just wish the showrunners had stuck the landing a bit better.

    Season Grade: B
    Series Grade: B+
    Season (and Series) MVP: Kyle Chandler

    Note: Ben Mendelsohn has to be submitted in Guest. Even more so than last year, there is no way Netflix can justify submitting him in Supporting, as he’s only in two episodes. And, if my math is correct, Linda Cardellini (woefully underused this season) also could submit in Guest this year, as she appears in four episodes.

    Wow, this sucked. I thought the first season was fantastic and the second pretty decent, but season three was exhausting and stupid. The above commenters are right that Chandler’s performance throughout the season and especially in “Part 32” is impressive…but the episode itself is an absolute trash fire (I sort of got what they were going for, but the artistic techniques applied were incredibly obtuse; how it could be compared to Breaking Bad’s “Fly”, which is entirely different on almost every level––structurally, thematically, emotionally, etc––is beyond me). If the argument is being held that tapes still matter, I think it has to be considered that voters (especially ones unfamiliar with the show and emotionally uninvested in this episode’s downright schizophrenic filmmaking approach to John’s breakdown) might not even be able to watch it all the way through. Flat out, it’s not an even remotely enjoyable hour.

    The same argument holds for a potential guest nom for Mendelsohn (the appropriate parties should remove him from supporting in the prediction center asap). Even though his screen time is significantly less in “Part 33” than 32, I’d suggest that he submit the one of his two episodes that is at least watchable. Lack of screen time didn’t seem to be a problem for him last year.

    I guess I am in the minority, but I thought season 3 was much better than season 2. The whole “Danny-as-ghost” bull shit was just not well played out. In season 3, I like that we saw the ramifications of the actions of these characters coming back to haunt them so much that they either flee, try to flee, or just stay to die/wallow in their misery.

    Sissy Spacek gave another stellar performance. Sally’s speech to Kevin and John was chillingly hurtful, harmful, and mean. BUT, Spacek played it to perfection. I love that she will just die there. Her line about the sea and it taking everything was so well read. I do not think I have ever rooted for hating a character like I did with her this season. What a cold bitch. So well done by Spacek.

    I love that Kevin attempted to go but that even in that attempt, his dumb ass actions caught up with him. Belle forgot to turn her GPS off. Ha!

    Meg was the smartest one out of all of them. She was absolutely right to get the fuck out when she did. Marco’s murder was the final nail in the coffin for her. Looking back on it, I love the way they ended the last episode she was in with her being able to finally lock the door. In that, she was able to lock her family out. She is the one I wanted more of this season.

    John Rayburn is such a victim of co-dependency and taking on the feelings and actions of everything and everyone close to him. It is something so real in American families, especially in the South. Kyle Chandler was a wonder this season. I loved him more in the finale than I did in that shitty penultimate episode, which is still such a pointless stinker to me. I love the questions at the end. Is he going to tell Nolan? Is he going to kill him like he did his father? Is he going to take Nolan in and raise him to make up for what he did to Danny? A closed ending but still open. Really enjoyed it. Once again, played wonderfully by Kyle Chandler.

    The stuff with Roy and Leguizamo’s characters kinda went nowhere, but I still very much enjoyed this season.

    I am going to miss the visuals of this show. I have been to Key West the past two summers on vacation and seeing Highway 1 and the long highway with those sunsets and the water will be missed.

    He was great but if he submits Part 32 most jurors wouldn’t even get to the end of the episode. Yeah, is that bad.

    Hard to read but it looks like Mendholson is guest and Cardellini is supporting even though people in the forums said she could qualify for guest. Another easy nom Netflix flushed down the toilet.

    Also, Beau Bridges is in supporting and they are not campaigning Sam Shepard. The three episodes that voters got on DVD are the first two of the season and the finale. I do not see an actress breaking through with Linda Cardellini, Sissy Spacek and Chloë Sevigny all going head to head and given their roles this season.

    Bridges appeared in too many episodes for Guest and Shepard did not appear this season.

    Finished the series. If not for that hot mess of a penultimate episode, I’d say this was about on-par with the second season. So much fabulous acting (would love to see Spacek nominated) but the writing and story structure were, per usual, aggravatingly haphazard. Still, in spite of my qualms, I will kind of miss this show, if exclusively for the cast.
