Does anyone else think that Bill Hader purposely sidelined Barry these last two episodes as he was more focused on writing/directing? If it was anybody else playing this character, it would’ve never happened.
Still, I think it was a fine ending. I’m gonna miss this show and certainly rewatch all 4 seasons.ReplyMay 29, 2023 at 4:50 am #1205444371
I was seriously expecting Kendall to kill himself. Glad to see Roman finally being free. Shiv… well, she did reasonable thing after all – went with power as she knew she would get none from Kendall.
What a ride it was. I feel bad for Kendall, really. A showing of raw emotion in a moment of vulnerability (the killing admission) a season earlier came back to haunt him, not dissimilarly to Roman being finished as an important player for showing real emotions during the funeral.
It’s a total collapse of the family and that’s what Logan really started.
I don’t know if anyone saw it but I absolutely loved “Succession” redone as “Arrested Development” (done with AI) – hysterical: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJ7m0h1KtbkMay 22, 2023 at 2:26 pm #1205437851
I must be a naive person because I bought Gene being changed and yet here we come. I think it’s poetic ending as he really loved Janice but his hunger for fame and attention will bring him a punishment – much severe than expected but somehow fitting.
Barry once again got away too easily but it’s finale so… let’s go!
A rocket missing was like typical, top-notch “Barry” absurd moment. NoHo Hank wouldn’t normally survive this as well, another plot machination.
I think Sally gets to be a martyr in the end with Barry being dead. Fingers crossed for top-notch finale.ReplyMay 21, 2023 at 11:02 am #1205436390
“Sunset Boulevard” musical with Glenn Close
A collaboration between Audrey Hepburn and Alfred HitchcockReplyMay 21, 2023 at 10:54 am #1205436377
That sounds really intriguing. Can’t wait for Portman and Moore to score double Best Actress nods (hopefully both will stay in this category if their roles warrant it). I wonder if it’s a player in screenplay, direction or below-the-line recognition.ReplyMay 21, 2023 at 10:46 am #1205436372
It might be cheesy and sentimental, but if I was a voter, I would want Strong to have a chance to win in front of his peers. This season might not be his strongest of the four (his bar is too high, dramaturgically speaking), but every season he has delivered consistently breathtaking performances episode after episode, and after all the shit he has had flung at him, including by Cox, it would be nice to see him get his flowers on stage for bringing us the iconic and devastating Kendall Roy.
I’d not only say that this is not his strongest season but it’s also clearly his weakest out of the all four (as of right now, 2 episodes unseen). He’s great as always and Ep. 3 would be a more than worthy submission but he had much more impressive stuff previously. It’d be fine to see him win but if he lost for season 3, I can see him losing easily for season 4.May 21, 2023 at 10:22 am #1205436348
Can’t wait!May 20, 2023 at 3:56 am #1205434252
Yeah, I think he will be nominated, he was nominated at SAG because every scene he is in Better Call Saul, he steals it. I´m not very confident in Giancarlo Esposito because only appears in two episodes, Banks appears in four. But he can still happen, I remember Olivia Colman did absolutely NOTHING in Fleabag and she was nominated, Stuhlbarg did NOTHING in The Looming Tower and he was nominated, so yeah, injustices happen a lot in Emmys more than in Globes. But Giancarlo is great in the two episodes he is in for Better Call Saull 6b.
Colman was Emmy-worthy in the premiere which she sadly didn’t submit (does it matter?). Certainly far from doing nothing, not to mention absolutely nothing. She was a scene-stealer.
As much as I like Banks, I wouldn’t nominate him for 6B. He should have won for season 1 over Dinklage. Esposito only has 2 episodes, that’s true, but those two are his best in the entire BCS run. He would be my preference for an episode including his final confrontation with Lalo.May 16, 2023 at 12:00 pm #1205430522
That made me feel anxious. Oh well time for me to watch this week’s Barry to calm down.
Yes, that is one calm show. 🙂
Intriguing episode. They all backstab each other so I felt for Kendall but not as much as he did for himself. It’s ironic how bad of a father he is given his own relationship with Logan.
Sarah Snook totally dominates this season. I support her winning Best Actress!
Greg finally has something interesting to do. He was even willing to betray Tom for his own purposes. He is not to be underrated by Roys.May 3, 2023 at 1:39 am #1205419692
I think Chris must know something about his submission, he wouldn’t slot him in Supporting just because he can, if that was the case, Brian would be available in Guest also.
I thought he’d stay in Lead no matter what but with Culkin going there, I can see him switching to supporting. As of right now I still think he’ll stay in Lead, though. Guest is out of question.May 3, 2023 at 1:33 am #1205419686
That’s gotta be the bleakest episode so far. Sally making that decision in the end plus switch were shocking, especially given that Jim Moss was following her already.ReplyMay 3, 2023 at 1:28 am #1205419683
My feelings are mixed. On one hand I think it’s the right choice because if Benoit Blanc was already created before then how the script of the following movie can be considered entirely original? On the other hand there are several movies based on real-life famous people like royals, musicians, journalists etc. nominated in original and most of them were portrayed in films before as well.ReplyApril 30, 2023 at 1:02 pm #1205415151
Greg is a pointless character. He’s not even funny anymore. “Inbred habsburg gint” and “two metres of nepotism” got a laugh from me though, The Jonad Files teas.
Yes, half a season has passed and Braun has literally nothing to show for it. Perhaps his talk with Kerry about her audition was his best moment but it’s not much when compared to the highlights from the previous seasons. So far he doesn’t deserve to be in the conversation.April 17, 2023 at 11:41 am #1205393660
Who would have thought that one “I feel safe with you” would turn everything on its head and rearrange the entire way the premiere was set. I can’t see Sally not using the situation to her advantage somehow. One interview in a talk show and she’s hot name again, I think.
I wonder what will happen to make Barry leave prison soon. What a performances, especially from Hader – one of my favourites working today!
Gene will pay for his greed and being hungry for fame, I fear.
Fingers crossed for D’Arcy Carden to reappear!
I loved the scene in the restaurant between two gangs! 😀
What a thrill to watch the newest and final episodes of “Succession” and “Barry” back-to-back.ReplyApril 17, 2023 at 11:31 am #1205393639
I agree with that so much. Near the end of season 1 I was shocked how little that guy did matter in the end.Not now
