    Oh, and I never thought it would be possible for me to dislike Alison Pill so much, but her character on this show is simply unbearable to me. 

    Well she is supposed to be kind of a damaged person. Didn’t someone comment this week about what an odd girl she always was? (The reporter I guess.) 

    I think Allen stands a good chance at a nomination. (if it is renewed).

    I’m actually coming back to reverse what I said earlier. These past two episodes have been really good and amped up the drama, which was so desperately needed after a few middling installments with no real action in the story. That’s all changed within the past two episodes and we’re really getting somewhere now with this show. I hope it’s not a fluke and it pushes behind those weak first few episodes and reverses course for a great first season.

    I don’t know how many of you have stayed with this show, but to me, it’s Alison Pill and not Joan Allen the MVP here. Her character easily is the one with the most layers and around which the most interesting things happen. I could totally see a supporting nomination for Pill, though it will probably be hard considering the ratings, but you never know. Show’s whack though.

    Did anyone else follow this until the end?

    I did. It had a few problems, but it was pretty good overall. Joan was really good.

    Pill was the MVP IMO. I don’t see this getting any Emmy nominations. The whole thing was just too overdramatic and hard to believe. There wasn’t a single likable character, which might have killed its chances of being renewed.

    This got way better than I originally expected about halfway through its run, and I would’ve liked to have seen a second season. I found Liam James to be the most impressive cast member, and Joan Allen was really good too.
