The Shield is the answer and it’ll be hard to ever budge that one. All of the bad things that had piled up for these characters since the beginning, everything ‘comes due’, and it just concludes so perfectly. There’s one of the sickest betrayals you’ll ever see, and that’s not even the most harrowing scene..
Couple others that come to mind.. Homeland had a great one recently. That one definitely makes the short list.
The one that nobody ever says, because nobody watched the show, is The Knick. Very good series, but that finale in particular was WOW.April 10, 2022 at 2:33 pm #1204911503
Just got caught up on this one. Very good indeed!! Definitely in for the season. Apple TV is having a run right now.April 8, 2022 at 7:23 pm #1204909623
Agree with everyone, that was a great season of TV and an exceptional season finale.
As someone who likes Succession just fine, but finds it to be very overhyped, maybe because there was nothing better, well.. this! This is better! I really hope it gets some award show momentum, not only because it deserves it, but, selfishly, I’d like to care about the drama Emmys again.March 27, 2022 at 8:17 pm #1204883155
The fifth best actor in the category has won his award and completely hijacked the show.February 9, 2022 at 10:00 pm #1204793631
First batch of reviews suggest that this is OK but nothing more — which is pretty much the impression people here were feeling from the trailer.January 11, 2022 at 9:29 am #1204715257
Criticize this finale, sure, but I am profoundly disappointed in anyone who thinks the New Blood finale was as bad as that appalling Season 8 finale. People have short memories, or.. I don’t know what.January 3, 2022 at 4:36 pm #1204695161
Thoughts on the new Dexter..
For anyone who might have thought the series would re-invent itself to some degree, with the new setting, NOPE. It is the EXACT same formula. Whether that’s a positive or a negative is up to the viewer!
Quality-wise, it sits between Dexter 1-4 and Dexter 5-8. It still sometimes gets very silly, but there are some clever touches as well. Overall it doesn’t feel bad to watch like the original’s later seasons; it’s good entertainment.
Clancy Brown is an excellent antagonist. And Michael C. Hall seems excited to be playing his signature role again, he has really been bringing it.December 16, 2021 at 3:11 pm #1204661080

Good to see Yellowjackets in the mix.November 18, 2021 at 3:21 pm #1204587073
Naomi Watts is amazing, and she is well overdue for a top-tier project.October 5, 2021 at 2:07 pm #1204504211
What a great series! How can you not be completely obsessed while watching this? This is the bloodsport/battle royale that finally fulfilled the premise’s potential.
My only disappointment is that I was not familiar with.. that actor that was revealed. Apparently he’s a huge star so that must have been a great revelation.
It’s true that Squid Game temporarily morphed into The Room whenever the VIPs were on screen, but, they were not important characters, so, not gonna sweat it that much. Everything else was wonderfully executed. Loved the acting, the directing, and, more than anything else it was a triumph of writing IMO.September 28, 2021 at 12:50 pm #1204490901
I wish this were true, but I just rewatched the speech and this moment is actually far before the sexy back comment. Sorry to burst the bubble
And here is Anya herself in Vanity Fair talking about bringing the sexy back to chess
“We used to joke on set that we were bringing sexy back to chess,” says Taylor-Joy. “We didn’t really think that that’s what people would actually think. I love the fact that people are like, Yeah, I’m going to go play this guy at chess, it’s going to be really hot.” She adds, laughing, “I’m living for it.”Not now
