    Mostly filler episode, which makes me somewhat down on this series being ten episodes instead of maybe six or less. I agree that Lamar Johnson is a compelling presence that draws you into Kofi’s plight in a way I don’t find with Hunter Doohan. I’m so fed up with Adam’s nonsense that I can barely stand seeing his character doing one stupid thing after another stupid thing. Bryan Cranston carries the series beautifully. Isiah Whitlock, Jr. and Carmen Ejogo are starting to get more material to work with, as well as Hope Davis. Her character is still underwritten, but there’s a few glimpses of something there.

    This show relies on too many cliches and plot holes to move the story forward. I can’t take the story seriously as a result of that.

    Finally! La Martindale had to swoop in and show ’em how it’s done! That’s the jolt that’s been so sorely missing from these mostly drab episodes so far. This is the best work done since the pilot. Loved the dinner table sequence and pretty much anything between Cranston & Martindale. I’m saddened by Kofi’s inevitable demise, though it should set the stage for what’s to come in future episodes. The last scene rocked me! Not really buying Hope Davis’s unconvincing Lady Macbeth posturing, but Michael Stuhlbarg, wow. This is why you cast him for these types of slow-burning roles. Can’t wait to see where things go from here! And Adam can go jump off a bridge like yesterday, seriously.

    I watched the fifth episode. It was more thrilling than the other episodes.

    I need to know who the blackmailer is! This is getting better and better as it continues, and Bryan Cranston is fantastic in every single episode.

    Just when I thought this was going to be a filler episode, the last scene happens, and then everything becomes exciting and vital again. Can’t believe how stupid they’re making Adam, or the coincidental nature of how characters just happen to be at the right place at the right time to jump start another series of events happening. Cranston sells all of it beautifully though, and now Stuhlbarg is emerging and matching him.

    Some conveniences of the script bother me, but Bryan Cranston is as fantastic as ever and deserves a nomination. Same with Stuhlbarg.

    Michael Shuhlbarg is really going for it now, which is what I wanted to see all through this. The walls are closing in on Michael, and just when I think he couldn’t sink any lower, he does lol. Can’t wait to see what happens when all of his loved ones start to turn on him, and all to protect Adam. We get Maura Tierney now prosecuting Carlo’s case, which is a treat. This role should be a nice showcase for her in the closing episodes. Lorraine Touissant also was memorable in her short screentime. Off for two weeks.

    Now we’re beginning Carlo’s trial. Love that Maura Tierney is getting more to do. They’ve brought in dealing with the pandemic, which I wasn’t expecting. I tried placing the time period with this, and it’s just “modern-day”-seeming, but now we have a specific era in 2020 that gives it a new relevance. This must be the early days when mask-wearing was spotty and optional, particularly in state and federal buildings. Bryan Cranston is still flawless here. I hope the writing pulls him through well to the end.
