    “Sharp Objects” realness, indeed lol. But I don’t think it’s that “simple,” since this wasn’t a last-scene-in-the-finale type revelation. But if all of this was only leading up to an exploration of dull white privilege with the rich, socialite parents protecting their sociopathic son, mehhhh. I’m not here for that shit. Living for legend Rosemary Harris tho! So unexpected and thrilling! Correcting Grace’s grammar? Your favs could never…

    Also whilst I’m here I forgot to post this the other day. I’m neither a love or a hater of this show. I think the actors are excellent and some (Grant, Sutherland) are who I am rooting for to win at the moment.

    However some of the writing on this show is too wacky. It’s entertaining but this scene kind of had me rolling on the floor. Noma is excellent but the writing just fell flat on its face here.

    Episode 5 was pretty poorly written, especially the court scenes which were just not realistic or coherent. There are so many plot holes, it’s getting ridiculous

    Agreed, Miles, that the court scene was very poorly written. The opening statement by the prosecutor was laughably bad.

    Looks like my killer theory comes true. Knew that blender line was important exposition.

    Oh I thought the conversation surrounding Google/Amazon and social media algorithms was by far the most riveting part of the episode, other than maybe the moment in which the two Elena-lovers are face to face at the security of the courthouse.

    Edit: I’m a big Kidman fan but the writing and execution of this show have been pretty shit since day one honestly.

    It was interesting I agree (as I said in my post) but it felt so clumsily executed. So is too much of a euphemism.

    I didn’t mind the writing of the first two episodes though.

    Kidman’s dedicated performance is still anchoring this uneven miniseries. Norma Dumezweni is killing it! I’m actually enjoying this miniseries more than most, partly because I always had reasonable expectations.

    The uniformly strong acting has regularly elevated this psychological thriller. Grant, Sutherland, and Jupe have all had their moments to shine throughout the five episodes. I’m shocked Edgar Ramirez is being wholly wasted; he’s a brilliant actor. Will he be showcased in the last episode? Is there something in the role that I just haven’t seen? I’m still expecting a few more twists and turns as this miniseries barrels towards its conclusion. I am hopeful that Kelly, Bier, and the strong cast stick the landing.

    This show is so uninspiring. Not bad but not memorable at all.

    I wouldn’t call this show uninspiring, yes it’s definitely not perfect but still much better and compelling than 90% of the crap that’s on TV

    Another increase in ratings for The Undoing this week, best live audience to date at 1.28M viewers.

    Considering this show debuted at around 700K viewers a few weeks ago, this is incredibly impressive. An undeniable major hit for HBO but please we don’t need a season 2, just leave on a high note..

    I’m definitely not suggesting a season 2 but several media outlets are already pushing for another season because of the high ratings which I think would be a big mistake.
    This story was clearly only meant for 1 season and doesn’t merit another one, if they continue on after this it would be an obvious cash grab..
