    I feel like Connie Britton will sneak in at the Golden Globes and get a nomination. Also where did you hear the show was already cancelled?

    Connie Britton was great here, but ironically when I listed to the podcast awhile ago, I always pictured a Jean Smart-esque woman for Debra. A little sad she was cast as the mother here, but nonetheless, the first episode was very good.

    Loving this past week’s episode, and wish the whole series was bingeable. Britton plays Debra so well.

    This episode gave Jean Smart one of her best performances (and this is coming from someone who has seen all of her nominated work and more). She was outstanding. Too bad she likely won’t get a vehicle like this in the remaining episodes.

    Overall, a great limited series. I found it to be gripping each episode. I’d say Connie Britton doesn’t stand a shot against Arquette and Adams, but she should be a contender and is a worthy lead actress nominee. Jean Smart gave the best performance in her specific episode, overall (and a career-best).

    I have watched every episode thus far except the finale which is sitting on my DVR. I thought given the story it is based on, it was poorly plotted, poorly executed and that Britton got almost nothing of worth to do.

    I’m all for subtle acting, but aside from a vague accent she’s done almost nothing in this show.

    Bana on the other hand has given what I consider to be tour de force work and truly deserved to be acknowledged by Emmy. I also think Jean Smart has done some remarkable work in this show.

    As for the characters, I’ve had a difficult time rooting for the daughters who come across as spoiled, petty and annoying the entire show. They did a poor job of trying to make these girls likable.

    Writer/critic Mark Harris has summed this up perfectly. It’s a throwback to those movie of the week (Gail O’Grady or Jean Smart would’ve played  Debra back in the day). I haven’t finish watching, but it’s breezy with a committed performance from Eric Bana and Connie Britton.
