    Again this series just goes way above expectations.  Arquette, Del Toro,  Dano were all brilliant this week.

    Episode Title: “Part 6”

    Synopsis: In a deep dive into the minds of these individuals, we finally see what Matt and Sweat are capable of outside the prison walls. Tilly’s natural instincts aren’t much better.

    Great episode. It was necessary to see exactly what Matt and Sweat were capable of and what I’m guessing are the crimes that sent the both of them to Dannemora, though this is the kind of thing you would normally see much earlier on in a miniseries. As much as I wanted forward momentum with the manhunt, this was insanely compelling and interesting. I might have focused less on Richard and more on David. I wasn’t too surprised that Tilly’s adulterous ways were cyclical and didn’t just start with David. I was also very taken by guest roles from Jim Parrack and Charlie Hofheimer. Eric Lange indeed got more to do as this story continues, so maybe the CC nod isn’t all that unfounded. Loved the 90s realness soundtrack choices: Wu-Tang Clan, Soundgarden, Dave Matthews Band, Ini Kamoze, Fatboy Slim, etc. Extended finale next week, and I absolutely can’t wait for it!

    We should’ve seen more of David this episode. By the way, the real Joyce called Ben Stiller an idiot, claiming she never had sex with neither of them.

    Were you expecting anything else from that woman? Of course she would deny every negative thing about herself presented here.

    Episode Title: “Part 7”

    Synopsis: Matt and Sweat run for their lives as the tension between them is pushed to the extreme. Tilly gets out of the hospital and does her best to evade the authorities. But as the law closes in, all three are confronted with hard truths about who they really are. Limited series finale.

    Overlong finale that didn’t need to be 100 minutes. It’s the one time this entire series where I found Ben Stiller’s direction to be self-indulgent and novice. So don’t submit this at the Emmys! Since he’s the sole director, I’m guessing he has to submit for the entire series, unlike the different writers who have to submit parts. I think the Emmys will latch onto this pretty easily since it’s very accessible and recent. I didn’t know any of this story beyond a few headlines, so I was completely riveted throughout. Dano, Arquette, Del Toro, and Stiller should be squarely in the Emmy race next year for nominations. All should fare better than at the Globes or SAGs. If voters really like this series, then David Morse and Eric Lange are possibilities for supporting actor. Bonnie Hunt wasn’t around much at all or made a significant impression, so I’m not predicting her for supporting actress. It was nice seeing Michael Imperioli pop up here, but it was essentially a cameo as Gov. Cuomo. Overall, this limited series knocked me for a loop when I wholly expected next to nothing from it. This should have been on numerous critics’ top ten lists if they didn’t come out so early.

    Loved this one. A+. In a perfect world, there would be a tie between Arquette and Adams at the Emmys 🙂

    Loved the finale and the series. Dano was my MVP. I thought he was brilliant throughout the whole series but I was blown away by him in the finale. Great work, I hope he’s recognized at the Emmy’s. Arquette was great as well, but I’m more of a fan of Adam’s performance so I’ll be rooting for Adams in that race. Still can’t believe Ben Stiller pulled this off. Very impressive. And what a crazy story, coming from someone who had no idea about this incident prior to hearing/watching this show. Definitely in my top 5 TV of the year!

    I haven’t seen/read much about this. I didn’t know what to expect, so I think I enjoyed it much more than if I would’ve known anything about it. The flashback episode puts so much in perspective and why every character does not deserve a happy ending and why we shouldn’t be rooting for them. Ben Still directed this very professionally, might be the first time ever for me to say something about him having talent. Patricia Arquette was something in it. I was never a fan of her acting, starting by her always awful line-reading but it fits her character so well here. Very much in character, just like Eric Lange was. I would need to see footage on the people they were based on to see how faithful they were. About her recent awards, I’m still pissed she got to beat Amy Adams in the role of a lifetime (even if I’m not a fan of her either). On the other hand, even if she’s far from what she looked like in True Romance and having all the make-up and gained weight, everytime they made a close-up of her breasts I was still like:

    Finally caught up with this one, and holy nuts. Arquette is absolutely winning. If she goes Supporting for THE ACT, she is likely taking home two Emmys in one evening. I adored Sharp Objects, and thought Amy Adams gave her best performance to date. However, no one is beating Patricia this season. No one.
