I loved the scene in episode 2 where Jason tells Ben about teaching his son to bunt. Not sure I’ll keep up with the rest of the series, but that was beautifully acted.January 22, 2020 at 5:05 am #1203298354
I liked the first two episodes, but I didn’t love them. It’s gripping and creepy and what not, but the case seems, for a lack of a better word, silly to me? In the sense that there’s all this conflicting evidence that just genuinely doesn’t make sense and it’s kind of taking me out of things. There’s obviously a rhyme and reason behind it that we’ll definitely find out about, but I just hope that whatever it is – it is actually believable. I thought Bateman was realllly great here as was Mendelsohn. Nicholson was also a stand out, but it’s one of those cliche roles so far. That hooded guy who keeps showing up is genuinely freaking me out. He obviously has something to do with how there’s conflicting evidence, but like I said before – I just hope it’s believable/realistic. Anyway, I could see so far how critics are mixed to good on this. I don’t think it’s anything that hasn’t been done before, but it’s still entertaining to watch. But yeah, not breaking new ground.
That’s the whole point yeahJanuary 22, 2020 at 5:09 am #1203298358
Is it just me or does anyone also think that there is always a show like this on HBO every year ever since True Detective S1 came out. I liked the show but nonetheless I started to get tired of watching crime shows with southern gothic vibes, dark neutral color palette and nature landscapes.
I’m the exact opposite. The more the better but few succeed in achieving a similar quality.January 22, 2020 at 6:35 pm #1203299567
That’s the whole point yeah
I know, which is why I said a sentence later that whatever the reason behind it is, I hope it’s actually somewhat believable.
I thought the third episode was of the same standard as the first two. I still find this to be just good, not breaking new ground or anything. Erivo was really good here as was Nicholson. I’m not really caring for Mendelsohn much so far. He’s serviceable, just nothing memorable. I’m hoping this picks up a bit in quality as the story moves forward/things start to connect, but as of right now I could still see why critics were okay-good on this.January 23, 2020 at 10:10 am #1203300337

I liked Erivo as well and I think she has great chemistry with Mendelsohn. At first I didn’t recognize her lol.January 23, 2020 at 11:03 am #1203300461
Huh? She literally looks exactly like herself lmao.January 23, 2020 at 11:07 am #1203300478
I don’t know what happened. Maybe because of the hair lmaoJanuary 24, 2020 at 10:05 am #1203302479
This show is so boring. Looks like Jason Bateman is coming for a guest nomination. This seems like a Watchmen situation where HBO is promoting it as a drama because they want more, but the people making it might not necessarily have that intention. I wonder if Bateman submits this or Ozark for directing. I do not remember Ben Mendelsohn having this lisp on Bloodline and he does not have it in clips from it that I am watching on YouTube now.January 25, 2020 at 11:08 am #1203304203
Glad, I’m not only one finding this so boring..January 26, 2020 at 12:41 pm #1203306968
Cynthia Erivo was excellent in this installment. I think this series is engrossing and standout so far. Can’t wait to see more!January 26, 2020 at 12:44 pm #1203306997
Episode Title: “Que Viene el Coco”
Synopsis: Holly retraces the Maitlands’ recent family vacation in Dayton, Ohio, and pursues a possible connection to an eerily similar case, gaining valuable insight from local former detective Andy Katcavage; Glory faces increased scrutiny in her daily life; Jack’s behavior grows progressively more erratic.

One of the better recent King adaptations in my view much like Mr. Mercedes except not as much shock value here, but mystery, creepiness and slow burn. Fine by me. Mendelsohn is great as usual and Erivo who I’ll admit I am not a fan of nailed Gibney, which shocked me a bit. Best work Bateman has done in years.January 27, 2020 at 6:30 am #1203314156
This is clearly not going to be HBOs main push in the limited categories but I’m really hoping it can managed to be remembered come voting time.January 27, 2020 at 7:08 am #1203314192
Just watched the new episode. A+
