No, I really, truly, and honestly don’t. In the old thread, in the spirit of just wanting to set the record straight, I went over the detailed circumstances of George’s death, just in case it was a mis-remembering thing on your part, but it didn’t seem as if you believed me, or acknowledged it, or appreciated my efforts, when I explained it. When someone points out a detail in a story that I get wrong, I welcome the correction, and am at least polite enough to thank them for helping me get the facts of the story straight. I was hoping you’d take it in the way it was intended… one fan of the show helping out another. Certainly not interested in playing “gotcha.”
But yeah, Trey certainly has it in him. His getting arrested for George’s death was wrong, even though he does have comeuppance due, at the very least, for covering up George’s death, and trying to frame Daniel for it. I am glad there will be resolution to this. I do hope and trust they will stick the landing. I’ll miss these characters.December 3, 2016 at 5:05 pm #1201961080
If it’s Trey all along, well, what can you do with that really when he killed off George in season 1? He’s capable of anything.
I believe we had this discussion before, but George killed himself at the end of the pilot episode in season one. Trey didn’t have anything to do with it. They talked about Hannah… but Trey left. George then shoots himself in the head.December 3, 2016 at 5:03 pm #1201961079
Seriously? That would have been so disappointing as a series ender. Good episode, but it wouldn’t have made sense to end it that way. They didn’t go full Coen Brothers, but they did go for the old redneck joke (“Watch this!”).
Did you like it? Ted shooting himself? I did not like it that much. I seriously thought he was gonna kill himself.
No, I didn’t necessarily like it… but I didn’t think he would kill himself, either. But you just knew something would go wrong. It was almost laughable, though, since it was preceeded by his “All right, watch this!” comment. He’s definitely in a bad place, but I hope this is as bad as it gets for him. In other words, I hope this gives him a wake up call, and that he doesn’t contemplate suicide. I’d like to see the show end a little more hopeful, for Teddy.December 2, 2016 at 4:25 pm #1201960679

The Chloe character may be the only weak aspect to this season in my view, and I wish it weren’t there, but I can live with it. It would make sense that Daniel would meet new people there, but I’m not one who feels the need to insert a potential love interest into every story on television, particularly one this close to its conclusion. I am still actually quite interested in the Hannah murder, too, and it does feel like there might be a resolution to that. But I love the show because it’s about so much more than a murder mystery. It’s one of the more geniunely human shows on television right now, and one of the few, if not the only one, that makes me feel honest emotion.November 24, 2016 at 8:11 am #1201956429
I agree. That scene between Tawney and Teddy was incredible. All of the actors are doing such great work. This is the one and only show that’s working for me on all levels right now… acting, directing, writing. Sad that there are only three episodes left of this amazing series. It’s truly a pity it doesn’t get the audience it deserves, or Emmy recognition, for that matter. Those who do watch it know what a gem it is, though.November 21, 2016 at 5:02 pm #1201954434
You have more faith than I do. I don’t know what to think about this episode, except that most of it was quite dull. I find Noah so unlikeable now, that this entire episode of only his POV was not very enjoyable. Now we have this PTSD issue, too? If the next two episodes don’t give any indication that there is much hope for this season, I’m out. Nearly bailed last season, but hung in there to the end. Was hoping we’d pick up where that left off. Instead we get this odd hour… and of course, since Noah is so appealing, the French teacher just had to come on to him. No woman can resist, apparently. I just did not think this was a very good seaon premier.November 14, 2016 at 1:38 pm #1201950630
If all goes right, I think the show can get up to 21 Emmy nominations. It will at least get nominated for 10. Claire foy, at least one other actor, at least one writing, at least one directing, cinematography, costumes, production design, casting, hairstyling, makeup, title design, score. That is 13 right there and that is basically bare Minimum .
Main title design is the one thing I wasn’t that impressed with, to be honest. I think Westworld outshines The Crown for main title sequence, by far, and that’s the one I’d root for. Doesn’t mean The Crown won’t still get nominated for it, though.November 9, 2016 at 11:59 am #1201947828
Days later, even after the election crazyness, I find myself still thinking about this series, and may even watch it again. Shocking, since I’ve never been one to care one whit about the monarchy. It’s my least favorite Jeopardy category. But this was immensely watchable. As amazing as Harris and Lithgow were, I think I continued to watch merely because Foy was just so captivating and mezmerizing. She really was perfect. Well done, you. She would have my vote for the Emmy, so far. I also thought the writing and directing were wonderful… as well as the cinematography. Can’t really find much to criticize, which is so unlike me. 🙂November 7, 2016 at 11:43 am #1201946464
I don’t even want to think about how much I’ll miss it when it’s over. Looks like there are still only 10 reviews on MC, all 100% (which makes it the highest rated show right now). But that’s sad. Even mediocre shows have at least twice as many reviews as that. What the hell.
On Rotten Tomatoes, it also has a score of 100%, with 12 reviews. Clearly, not enough critics are watching.November 7, 2016 at 11:20 am #1201946444
Finished it last night. I think Harris was in six episodes? But I wasn’t really trying to keep score, so that might not be right. He was certainly a standout, but I thought everyone was actually quite good. I nearly passed on this one, after reading so many negative reviews on Netflix (“boring” “slow”), but I didn’t find it boring, at all. Glad I stuck with it. I’m a bit surprised by its score of 82 on MC. Thought it would be higher than that.November 5, 2016 at 10:00 am #1201945338
I’ve only seen the first two episodes, so I was wondering about that, too, considering. Unless he appears in flashbacks, how can he be in seven episodes?November 4, 2016 at 3:54 pm #1201945085
So, I was right about Quinn not being dead, then. That’s good, and I’m glad, although it’s a freaking miracle that he survived. Hope he doesn’t spend the entire season in a coma. Last season was horrible enough for that character.
