Easy for you guys to say in hindsight, but yes, I’ll hope for better material for Groff in the coming episodes. That’s the downside of these catch-all threads. Thanks in advance for not spoiling things.September 6, 2018 at 11:27 pm #1202625415
I’m surprised that he couldn’t make the Emmy cut in Director for this episode.
They submitted the finale across most categories actually.
Okay. I see that Fincher directed the finale too. Doesn’t change the point made that his snub is conspicuous.September 7, 2018 at 1:40 pm #1202625854
Finished season 1. I was really trying to stretch it out for at least the weekend lol. Groff certainly got more to do, I’ll give you that. I didn’t think a character like this would afford him that much material other than “just the facts, ma’am” procedural realness. But by the end, that was all turned around when the BSU caved in on itself and all of Holden’s demons came to a stirring head. I’m just excited that Groff was as convincing as he was playing a straight character and no one having an issue with it. It’s as much a breakthrough for representation in serialized television as “Pose” was for trans actors in my view. Not all of it worked, but I couldn’t stop watching until the end. The “area crime of the week”-murders wore on me at times, and I didn’t follow the logic of the weirdo Kansas guy that they kept following. There was a drabness to some of the proceedings that I would have wanted some levity brought into it instead. Stretches felt overly didactic, especially the pilot. Groff felt too modern at times. The killers had the juiciest material, of course, starting with Cameron Britton, who I honestly couldn’t get enough of as Ed Kemper. I had to immediately go to Wikipedia to look up if this guy was for real, and he absolutely is! Get that Emmy win this weekend! The “Big Red” guy was also interesting, and the women’s shoes fetishist. The actor playing Richard Speck kinda overdid it for me, but I did enjoy the complexities of those latter episodes. B/c I know all of my “Mad Men” writers like I do, once I saw Erin Levy’s and Carly Wray’s names in the opening credits, I rightfully anticipated potential greatness from them. The “foot tickler” principal episode might have been my favorite episode of the season, give or take Britton’s debut. I thought for sure that Debbie was a goner, and then that would make things “personal” for Holden. Anna Torv was fierce and reminds me of a younger Cate Blanchett. Fincher should have submitted the pilot, like I expected. The show itself deserved more than a single Emmy nomination. I’d venture that its early debut killed it (no pun intended). Who knows what could have happened if season 2 had dropped in June 2018 to jog voters minds? Anyways, I’ll immediately binge next season as soon as it’s available and won’t make the mistake of waiting this long for lack of “buzz” or whatever. Hopefully that’s on tap for this fall since it’s almost the one-year mark, and I’m impatient as fuck. Who knew?September 7, 2018 at 1:45 pm #1202625856
Nope, they are unfortunately shooting through the end of November for some reason. I did not buy Groff as convincingly straight here, but he got better as the season went on, so he should have a strong second season, especially with the girlfriend gone.September 7, 2018 at 1:52 pm #1202625863

It’s ridiculous he didn’t win, maybe some redemption is in the future.
Big fan of Better Call Saul, Sex Education, Barry, BoJack Horseman, and, especially, Survivor
