But the thing is Laura Linney’s character isn’t even that interesting. People watch her and then be like « oh, that’s it » they don’t overthink it. Walter White is something different.
If you say so. You are the smartest one in the room after all.May 5, 2020 at 2:01 am #1203464015
Laura Linney is a great actress and everything but she should never be compared to Bryan Cranston, neither should their characters, the nerve! Ozark at its best isn’t even half better than Breaking Bad at its worst. That show been overrated here, or it’s just bandwagoning either way, it’s laughable.
We fucking get it you don’t like the show.May 7, 2020 at 12:45 pm #1203469748

Watching Fire Pink rn.
I’ve watched it enough times now to be somewhat desensitized to its impact, but I do like to see how much it affects people for the first time.May 7, 2020 at 3:57 pm #1203470041
It was intense and emotional. I already knew about the episode being a Emmy tape for Pelphrey, but I am amazed about how good was Linney. The last scene when she calls Marty broke my heart.May 7, 2020 at 4:08 pm #1203470055

Seriously, to have that episode be bookended by both actors’ powerful performances, especially following that sheriffs dept scene in episode 8… It’s so, so good.
Linney has been doing all these interviews and none have touched on the craft side of those episodes. I’m hoping she gets to discuss it more in-depth later this summer.May 24, 2020 at 1:04 pm #1203498838
Marty Byrde is trending on Twitter because of that pool party video at Lake of the Ozarks. 🤣May 27, 2020 at 11:05 pm #1203504536
I have been slowly catching up on Season 3, and Fire Pink was easily the best episode of the show in it’s 3 year run (I haven’t watched the finale yet!). I knew from the first two seasons how great Laura Linney was but she never blew me away like she did in the last 20 minutes of this episode. You could feel her helplessness and her frustrations, and that final scene in the car whilst on the phone with Marty was an absolute gut-punch. She’s my personal runner-up for leading actress after Viola Davis. And Tom Pelphrey should win Supporting Actor for that opening scene alone.May 28, 2020 at 12:37 am #1203504635

Okay I watched All In, and that ending I did not see coming even though I wanted Helen Pierce gone for 3 whole episodes now. I was sure they were going to leave us hanging and I kept looking at the time thinking no way they wrap this up in 3 minutes and then bam! Fire Pink still imo is the superior episode and overall Season 3 was easily the best paced, written, acted and directed (the show was always well directed but I’m glad they got rid of the blue filter this season) season thus far. I really hope we get season 4 next year.June 30, 2020 at 8:27 am #1203558618June 30, 2020 at 8:32 am #1203558630
Split into two parts with 7 episodes apiece. It really is going the BB route, lol.
