    Oh I thought he became president after Selina and was impeached before his first tenure even completed then Talbot became president after Jonah (two terms) then Richard Splett… but it turns out he was impeached while serving as the Vice President… lmao mess.

    Just finished watching this show. It wasn’t easy to get into it, the first 5 episodes are not that great. They’re good enough to set things up, make you maybe sorta wanna care about the characters and actors in order to prepare you for episode 6 which is where everything changed. After that, it was the best show I’ve seen in a while.

    Definitely a contender for everything and now that it got those key Emmy nods, there’s nowhere but up for this show. My picks for nominations would be Cox, Strong (both leads) Snook (supporting where she belongs), MacFadyen and Culkin (season 2 wasn’t as great for Roman until the very last episode. Other than that it was just one liners. MacFayden was better).

    Really glad they fixed Shiv (like so many other things). They didn’t quite get her in the first few episodes. The terrible clothes alone made her seem less part of the family than Willa, honestly. She looked like the bastard child instead of Connor. The haircut and the suits were much better for the job she had and how wealthy and serious she is.

    The finale was fantastic. I love that I got to binge this show like this, but now comes the annoying path to accepting that this it until August 2020 or something.

    I was wondering if Annabelle Dexter-Jones was a guest possibility since Hunter is ineligible but then I remembered Cherry Jones

    When you rewatch season 1 you realise that it wasn’t really a jump in quality, but just a jump in forward momentum in the back half of the season. For example I thought the 5th episode was as good as the show got in season 1. The dinner/dessert scene at the end of the episode was absolutely hilarious, and the confrontation between Cox and Cromwell was brilliantly written and acted.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)

    Getting closer and closer to the end, just wanted to pop in and share a thought. I’m more than enjoying this season so far; the show has become great instead of just good. But after the wonderful Dundee episode – now I can’t name Logan Roy without thinking of Uncle Scrooge! – my very one and only complaint had to become explicit: why so little screen time for Marcia? Hiam Abbass is a joy to watch, especially when supported by such terrific writing. I’m saddened by the fact that she felt like a guest during this season; I was curious to know whether anyone else felt the same or not.
    In any case, rooting for this show at next year’s Emmys.

    Acting nominations in the last year:

    Golden Globes: Kieran Culkin
    Critics’ Choice: Matthew Macfadyen
    Gold Derby: James Cromwell
    Satellites: Brian Cox & Jeremy Strong

    No consensus.

    Predicting Drama Series, Cox, and Culkin for Globes. I doubt Strong can also get into lead. Actress is too competitive for Snook to break through. Maybe another nod for someone in supporting actor? Macfadyen would most likely benefit if that were to happen, but the catch-alls don’t normally have double nods. Was very close to predicting Holly Hunter for supporting actress, but I decided against it. Seems too much too soon when the show needs to establish its awards presence more first.

    Still no consensus.

    At least we have our first actor on the board with nominations from two separate groups.

    IMO, Matthew Macfadyen is better than Kieran Culkin.
