    Looks excellent! Hope that this series completely drags the Sacklers. It’s the least of what they deserve.

    This is a really well cut trailer.

    If this is good I can see it cutting past some of Hulu’s other stuff.

    Watched the first, it’s not a groundbreaking thing but it’s okay
    Kaitlyn Dever is a must.

    Watched the first three episodes. Really, really compelling. The various timelines make it a bit confusing to follow at first but I got used to it by the middle of the second episode.

    Dever blows the rest of the cast out of the water. She’s devastating, especially in the third episode which is a great showcase for her. Keaton is also reliably great.

    Three episodes in and Dever is phenomenal.

    I finished this last night and was really emotional. Addiction runs in my family so the subject matter hit very close to home.

    It’s unimaginable the amount of lives that were lost at the hands of OxyContin and, ultimately, the Sackler family. And to know that true justice was never served is unfathomable.

    I didn’t think this series was perfect by any means, but it was really solid. Compelling, informative, frustrating and devastating. I’m not sure everyone really knows about OxyContin and just how many lives its affected across the US. It’s truly an epidemic. If nothing else, I’m glad this could shed light on the topic and possibly introduce it to people who were frankly unaware it was even a problem.

    Dever deserves the Emmy and Keaton should be nominated alongside her.

    Seen three episodes. It took me a while to get into it – mainly because the storytelling is quite scattered (although understandably so – and it’s by no means a perfect series but by the time episode 2 ended I was absolutely gripped by the show and I honestly can’t wait for the remaining episodes to air over here! It’s a really tragic story and just from an educational perspective (as someone who isn’t from America and thus had no idea about the origins of the epidemic) it’s been really informative.

    Michael Keaton is SPECTACULAR. I don’t think the show’s writing particularly has such a great focus on the backstory of the victims of the epidemic but from the moment he comes on screen you really feel like you know his character because he imbues his characterisation with lots of warmth. I was a bit worried before watching that I’d see a bit of Kaitlyn Dever’s other performance in this characterisation but that’s been from the case here so far and she’s another standout who deserves note.

    FYC: Better Call Saul and The Good Fight in all categories including Bob Odenkirk, Christine Baranski and Rhea Seehorn.

    Michael Keaton’s character feels like a real person and I mean that in the most complimentary of ways. It is probably a bit under seen but I would be completely delighted if Keaton won SAG.

    I think the Hulu of it all might help it but I worry it might go the same path as The Good Lord Bird (nominations across the board for its lead but no series nominations which hurts it at the Emmys).

    I feel like one of the things that will help it is it’s an interesting, discussable, relevant topic which might give it some legs.
