That makes sense. It just seems that they won’t bother campaigning. I’m actually thinking of putting Insecure instead.May 12, 2020 at 1:40 pm #1203478411
I don’t love the turn the series took in this one, but at least it was executed well. Wever and Panjabi continue to impress, and nominations would be deserved.
PWB did nothing this episode, kind of blows my mind that people found her hilarious lol.
Agreed. She was… there. Next week looks more promising for her character.

This last episode was SOMETHING. It’s kind of going off the rails, but I don’t hate it? This show feels so unique in how sparse it is. The entire story so far could be told in a few-sentence summary, yet it never feels boring or empty. That twist was crazy. I think the show is best when focusing on Ruby and Billy’s strange relationship, and this latest bit was a complete about-face. Panjabi was fantastic, so she made her character really work and pop.
This is a weird show, and I don’t even know if I can still assign any sort of letter grade or quantification to it, but I know I’m definitely going to watch until the end, which has to say something.May 15, 2020 at 11:24 am #1203483170
I finally watched this week’s episode and, well, bless its heart. It’s trying ain’t it, but it really isn’t succeeding except for Wever’s performance. I like the show that she is on, but the show that is written and that everyone else is on just is not good. It is a jumbled mess. Wever even makes you like and sympathize with a character doing such unlikable things. I’m probably kind of hate-watching it now, but I want to see how it ends.May 15, 2020 at 11:42 am #1203483198
I can’t wait for PWB’s appearance on the next episode only because I feel like she’s gonna have a longer screen time and it could end up as her Emmy guest submission in the ballot.May 15, 2020 at 11:47 am #1203483208
This show has good bones, characters and acting, but its concept is gonna get boring after a few seasons. It won’t hold people’s attention when the main story runs out of steam or repeats itself.
It should be peaking now like Handmaid’s Tale, Mr. Robot, Homeland, Lost, Killing Eve did in their first season, but the quality isn’t there. If this is the best the show can be, then I don’t think it should keep going.May 15, 2020 at 12:46 pm #1203483304
If you want to see a way better show with a similar premise I advice everyone to watch The End of the F*cking World on Netflix. I promise you won’t regret it.May 17, 2020 at 1:45 am #1203485762

The last episode (5th) took a very dark, unexpected turn. I don’t necessarily hate the show but I wish it was more funny.
PWB was… boring to say the least. I hope she has better and funnier material moving forward. Archie Panjabi was great and I wish she scores an Emmy nomination.May 17, 2020 at 3:27 pm #1203486705
I hate when characters make stupid mistakes. It takes me out of the show immediately. I’m over this.May 18, 2020 at 12:37 am #1203487296
I’ve given this show 5 episodes and it does nothing for me. I actually liked the pilot but every episode since then has been a different version of the pilot. I kept watching because Weber’s great, but I think I’m done. I started episode six and I am writing this as it plays in the background- that’s how invested I’m in the show. It’s an interesting premise, but it’s not going anywhere. The main characters are not interesting enough, and we know very little about them, especially Ruby, to even care for them. Billy and Fiona’s storyline is meh and it’s hard to know if Billy is even completely telling the truth. I think it would have worked better if you could binge all the episodes at one go, but watching this weekly has started to become a chore.May 18, 2020 at 3:33 am #1203487377
Loved it! I actually thought this was the funniest episode I’ve seen since the pilot. “I didn’t want ginger babies” lmao. Merritt Wever lept off of the screen here, and it was also the first time that Domhnall Gleeson matched what Merritt Wever was bringing to the table. They felt more like equals to me, in a “Bonnie & Clyde” sort of way. I’ve wanted that dynamic to occur and sustain itself from the beginning, so better late than never. Totally here for it, bitches! I’d assume that this would be Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s tape. She was deadpan in most of her line deliveries, which some will like and some will hate. The actress playing the scatterbrained cop surprised me in some of her acting choices. I usually loathe the “bumbling cop who’s really savvy” routine, but it worked for me here. Can’t wait for the finale and see what happens to these characters! The about-face plot developments from last episode could have been a disaster, but it’s thrilling to see how things will conclude. Also, HBO is calling next week’s episode a season finale and not a series finale, so take that for what you will.May 18, 2020 at 5:23 am #1203487457
“Tell”: What a cracking episode of television. Not quite flawless but driven by a packed and funny script with both Wever and Gleeson turning in their best performances so far. Also who would have guessed that Waller-Bridge wouldn’t even be the best guest star in this episode? Tamara Podemski was divine and so full of life.May 18, 2020 at 7:51 am #1203487620
LOVED this epsidoe: A+
