It came back a while ago. Nobody is talking about it. I loved season 2 so I’m hoping season 4 is an improvement from the disappointing season 3.July 4, 2018 at 8:08 pm #1202579466
After watching the first episode, I will be hard core stanning for Tierney to get back in. She was so good in the premiere.July 4, 2018 at 11:54 pm #1202579501
Ugh. Thanks for this thread. I’ll get back to it once THT is over. But the show has literally zero buzz so I don’t think Tierney has a shot at a comeback.July 5, 2018 at 8:33 am #1202579661
Ugh yes! I was gonna start a thread today. Season 3 was indeed disappointing, but Season 4 seems much more focused and with the addition of new characters elevates the storyline even more.
Maura Tierney has been great. Christopher Meyer and Sanaa Lathan shine in the limited screen time they have so far, but holy shit Omar Metwally really blew me away in episode 4. I see some great material not only for him, but for Tierney too through the rest of the season.July 5, 2018 at 9:12 am #1202579683
I loved this series so much, the first two season were incredible. But I didn’t even watched season 3, because all the bad reviews. I miss this cast, so maybe one day I come back.July 19, 2018 at 2:48 pm #1202590635
I’ve watched episode 1 and episode 2 and it was satisfying. A promising start which already makes this season look better than the previous one. I have to admit that I feel more invested in Noah and Helen than in Alison and Cole. Also, for the very first time I thought Joshua Jackson was better than the however very good Ruth Wilson but if anything, this show really is a showcase for acting by pretty much every single performer working there.
Everyone of them is a very flawed human being, but to whom of the four leads can you relate the most? In my case, while I don’t usually consider myself an asshole as Noah sometimes is, I often understand how he feels or why he acts in a certain way.July 19, 2018 at 7:40 pm #1202590723
Episode 5 is the show’s best episode in a very long time, mostly because of the new perspective from Vik (Omar Metwally) who delivers a tour-de-force performance. His monologue on how he’s never made a decision of his own was gut-wrenching stuff. The show is finally back on track again.
Joshua Jackson was great too in his perspective, but his arc, particularly in this episode feels rushed.
Interestingly enough, he’s the only actor among the 4 leads who hasn’t received a Golden Globe nomination (or at least a major nomination) for the show. The Globes need to play catch up. Or give Omar Metwally his due.August 16, 2018 at 7:52 am #1202610470
Just watched episode 8: what were the writers thinking? Were you guys expecting this? I’m shocked. But that was a great episode. I don’t even know who is the lead anymore. Emmys nominations for everyone in a just world.August 18, 2018 at 2:06 pm #1202612005
Episode 9 and episode 8 managed to give a whole level of additional sense to the entire series. This season has just evolved from being just good to being very good, back on the levels of the first two. I will miss it once it’s over.August 18, 2018 at 2:11 pm #1202612007
Episode 9 was brilliant.August 18, 2018 at 3:18 pm #1202612020
Having seen the first 4 episodes, this season is really pushing my patience. I will only finish because of what I’ve heard about the later episodes, but it’ll be tough. Sarah Treem is yet another writer who has no clue about the voice of youth. The high school scenes are so bad because the dialogue for the students is awful.
Moira Tierney needs to come back to the awards conversation though.August 18, 2018 at 9:36 pm #1202612163
Got caught up on Season 4. There was some wacky stuff, but it was an improvement on Season 3 all the way. But then Episode 8 and 9, wow, maybe the two best episodes they’ve ever done.
That said, Season 5 may be a tough sell for some people based on who will be absent.August 18, 2018 at 11:51 pm #1202612185
I also loved the final scene in ep 6 (hopefully I’m not confusing episodes) between Alison and Helen. That was the most “meta” moment of the entire series and it came natural and at the right time.August 18, 2018 at 11:54 pm #1202612186
I have just finished episode 9 and all I have to say: Ruth Wilson. Most actors when over the show phone it in and it shows. But she’s an absolute pro, gave her all and broke my heart. Haven’t seen a better dramatic performance in a leading role this season.
Btw that’s not an ending I have imagined for Alison Bailey. She deserved so much better.
Without many spoilers, what did you believe of the two perspectives? Is one the dream and the other, for the first time, the objective truth? Or are the both still two subjective perspective and the truth is a synthesis? Or, still, the second perspective is just some sort of mental fear?August 20, 2018 at 10:30 pm #1202613401
The finale was really good as well; that’s a good a run of episodes as this series has ever had. It’s still a show with some very whacked-out plotting, to be sure, but, the level of talent in front of, and behind the camera was very evident the past few weeks.
It’s interesting that this could easily have been a series finale. I don’t really know what’s on tap for Season 5, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but..we’ll see..
