    First review is up. Let’s see whether this will be enough for a limited series nomination.

    Ali sounds like an Emmy winner if you ask me

    Looks like a stable 72 on Metacritic with almost 30 reviews in. Consensus is this doesn’t nearly match the peak of season 1, but it’s far better than the debacle of season 2. Review after review mention “return to form” and “byzantine, circular plotting of original series,” so there’s that lol. Mahershala Ali gets most of the positive ink for bringing undeniable “star power” to this and shines in the multiple time arcs. What a time to be him right now! Anywho, it’s almost time for the season premiere! Two episodes on Sunday night.

    Episodes Titles: “The Great War & Modern Memory”; “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye”

    Synopses: Season Three Premiere. The disappearance of a young Arkansas boy and his sister in 1980 triggers vivid memories and enduring questions for retired detective Wayne Hays, who worked the case 35 years ago with his then-partner Roland West. What started as a routine case becomes a long journey to dissect the crime and make sense of it; Hays looks back at the aftermath of the 1980 Purcell case in West Finger, AR, including possible evidence left behind at the Devil’s Den, an outdoor hangout for local kids. As attention focuses on two conspicuous suspects–Brett Woodard, a solitary vet and trash collector, and Ted LaGrange, an ex-con with a penchant for children–the parents of the missing kids, Tom and Lucy Purcell, receive a cryptic note from an anonymous source.

    Discuss.

    As reported, Ali kills it here. This is better than both his Green Book and Moonlight performances, proving once again that TV has the best acting roles. The show itself is pretty good, but of course missing the philosophy and lovecraftian elements that made season 1 outstanding.

    First two episodes were quite good!  Already a big fan of the Ali/Dorff combo

    It’s pretty much impossible for this show to get close to season 1 levels though. I’d quit watching the show altogether if that’s what you’re expecting.

    I just want it to be better than season 2.

    Riveting opening episodes. Already better than anything I watched in season 2. Mahershala Ali is amazing. This makes me slightly more at ease with his pending second Oscar for “Green Book” of all things and how effortless that seems to be unfolding. He’s a leading man now, so hopefully with two damn Oscars and this star turn the rest of the world will catch up to him. The story instantly grabs you. Missing (white) kids will always do that to an audience. The time jumps might become tedious, but for now, I’m fascinated by how the editing is being done. Welcome back from the dead, Stephen Dorff lol! Who knew? Nice seeing Carmen Ejogo getting something like this. I hope it works out for her, since Pizzolatto’s writing for women is so spotty. We might need to watch out for Scoot McNairy as well. Mamie Gummer was certainly … vivid. Totally in for the entire season and on pins and needles for tomorrow night, bitches!
