    I think that Merritt Wever is absolutely brilliant. But the show doesn’t have magic. I agree with whoever wrote (sorry, no disrespect, I just hate looking for a specific name) that this would have worked better as a movie. The episodes are too brief and this is all like the College episode on The Sopranos.

    I remembered seeing that part of being a movie and went to look. Haha, I wrote it and I forgot I did. Lawd bless my dang heart.

    I don’t care about the low ratings. It’s not relevant to the high content of the actual series itself. That would influence possibilities of a season 2, which might not have been a consideration for the show to start with given the premise. Also, who knows when we’re getting next seasons of anything at this point? We’ll get the full duration of the season regardless b/c it’s HBO, and there’s always the chance that people will discover “Run” in the long run over various platforms. None of that has anything to do with what Emmy voters are watching or not watching either. All is most certainly not lost currently.

    That’s true. College does happen to be one of my favorite episodes of The Sopranos, though.

    Finally caught these first 2 episodes. I enjoyed them. Idk why people are being so harsh (maybe I came into it with lower expectations?).

    I love Merritt Wever in this! I think she is hilarious and a force. I like Domhnall, but his character/performance isn’t as strong.

    I get that this can be “dramatic” given the mystery of the whole show… but not anymore so than something like Dead to Me. So I don’t necessarily understand that argument. It’s something different so I’m down for the ride.

    Looking forward to seeing Emmy winner Archie Panjabi in Episode 3!

    Those ratings are dire. If a show has enough critical cache it can sometimes overcome being tiny but not sure if that’s the case here. Tempted to drop it in comedy series lineup for Insecure…

    First episode was fine but not funny. I even forgot I was watching a “comedy”. The second one was better and was actually funny on multiple occasions. Mess at her calling herself “Dolores” though lmfao!

    Episode Title: “Fuck”

    Synopsis: Ruby and Billy decide to spend a day in Chicago before making any rash decisions about their next moves. As the two anxiously await check-in at a lavish hotel, Ruby meets an exciting woman at a department store, while Billy tries to handle a relentless Fiona. Later, Billy comes clean about what drove him to run.

    Discuss.

    I watched the pilot just because there are people from Fleabag involved and you guys said that Merritt is very good. But I thought everything was forced. I’ll wait until the end and follow your comments here to see if it’s worth watching.

    It’s simply not for me. Wever is very good in it though

    Now we’re finally getting into the meat of things! Merritt Wever is just giving me everything right now bitches, and I can’t get enough of Ruby here! The introduction of my beloved Archie Panjabi was fantastic. I’m instantly compelled to know more about Billy and Fiona’s relationship. It feels like much more than just work at first glance, but maybe not. I know that one of the criticisms from the critics’ reviews is that future episodes overwhelm the dynamic of these two fantastic leads with unnecessary plot contrivances, while not trusting in the star power of the two-hander to see the series through. I hope that’s not the case. It remains to be seen if the story is strong enough for more than one season, or if HBO would even bother with the low ratings and no guarantees of when studios can start shooting again. But whatever, I’m in for this great thrill ride until the bitter end!
