    Nick Robinson is so good. It sucks that less talented people like Tom Holland and Timothee Chalamet are taking all the roles for actors at his age.

    I do not understand why Tom Holland keeps getting so many roles he’s a very underwhelming actor.

    I watched four episodes of this and it’s so good. Qualley and Macdowell are both amazing.

    Even if this gets lost watch it anyway, it’s very good.

    It so sensitively handles an abusive relationship. As somebody who has lost a sister to this, I was really nervous to watch. I applaud the storytellers. It takes many forms, isn’t always obvious.</p>

    Maid broke into the top 10 in my country. Maybe some people are watching it after all

    Ah the creator did write for Shameless, so there’s logic to those vibes.

    I think if this remains low viewership I can see this pulling a William H Macy and it only really getting Qualley in anywhere as opposed to the show.

    This show is a beast, watched the first six today and i couldn’t stop focusing on Alex’s journey, it’s such a well made, well written character study. Margaret Qualley is the perfect fit for the role and, as of now, should be winning the Emmys.

    The whole ensemble is perfection, everyone is already hot for Andie McDowell for a reason, she nailed. But i wanted to take a minute to talk about Anika Noni Rose, so far her screentime was so little, but she nailed that particular scene that you’ll know if you see the show, it gave me Julianne Nicholson vibes and she should be getting praise.

    10s across the board.

    FYC:

    All things Succession, Severance, Ted Lasso, The Great and The White Lotus! Also, Colin Firth and Janelle James while you're at it.

    Such a beautiful, sincere and humane limited series. Truly loved it. Qualley was simply outstanding and conveyed everything that needed to be perfectly. Alex must be one of the most likeable character of the past years and witnessing her journey has been hard but fulfilling.

    I echo what Victor said above, Anika Noni Rose was incredible as well and deserve a nomination, if not win. Also appreciated Andie McDowell and Nick Robinson continues to show he is truly a great actor, there is nothing of Simon or of his A Teacher character in this and he pulled it off greatly.

    I finished episode 4 and it is my favorite episode so far. I also noticed how this show is gaining more viewers. It was at #9 in my country the moment I started watching and now it is up to #5 spot in my country.

    I finished this last night and I thought it was really well made. I loved that it wasn’t so bleak. The injection of humor here and there was a nice touch. I was actually afraid it would end up being something like I Know This Much Is True, which was just a brutal watch all the way through. They also did a great job of making you feel the desperation, loneliness, and despair single mothers in these types of conditions face. Really uncomfortable at times, from a viewers stand point. Loved the ending too – it felt extremely earned. I don’t think it’ll end up being my favorite of the season and it didn’t necessarily reinvent the wheel, but it bought an important topic to light and told this woman’s story in a compassionate, honest way.

    I also really appreciated how well rounded of a character Sean was. As someone who’s had experiences with alcoholics, they aren’t always bad and that’s not normally how they’re reflected on screen. They’re often very charming actually, and obviously not fully in control/responsible for their addiction. Robinson navigated the character flawlessly. Easily his best performance (that I’ve seen) to date.

    As for the other performances, the entire supporting cast is perfect. This is why limited series should have an ensemble category at SAG! MacDowell, in particular, really impressed me. Playing that type of character was a real tight rope walk and I thought she absolutely nailed it. Anika Noni Rose was brilliant as well. Her character’s relationship with Alex ended up being one of my favorite parts of the show. And then there’s Qualley. The show really relies on her performance and she delivers in a big way. I felt every moment. A real heartbreaking, heroic turn.
