Idk about everyone else but I thought that was the best episode of the season by far (…)
for sure, and one of the best in the series. There were so many amazing, well written scenes.
btw, I enjoy this season more than most of you in this thread, but I still don’t see KE with writing nomination. Without Phoebe they just don’t have that well known name to put it out there. I know that writing nominations work a bit diferent, so maybe name is not everything, but still..May 20, 2019 at 11:57 am #1202901669
I hope Pose could be a strong contender with many nominations.
I would be okay with that.
But honestly, the only alternative I’m seeing here is BCS and Succession. But with massive Netflix campaign who the hell knows how dangerous Bodyguard could be.
I don’t know, this is messy as hell. GOT will win no matter what.May 19, 2019 at 9:49 am #1202899724
Wow Sian Clifford on Fleabag was so good. I think that she does the best acting on the show. Such a contained, emotional, hilarious performance.
I know right!? I love her.
I don’t care how this will mess up my predictions, I’m putting Fleabag in every comedy category possible.May 18, 2019 at 2:46 am #1202898391
I guess the show wants to tell the story of love&obsession. Each season will put them into the next level of hell (or heaven, depends how you look at it) and it will eventually lead to their “end”.
Waller Bridge said that for her it was always a love story. Toxic, unhealthy and naughty, but a love story and I think that’s the kind of story they are trying to tell. It doesn’t work for everyone, and I totally get why some don’t buy it and are bored with it. But I like it and I’m ready for more. Even tho I saw some shortcomings in both s.1 & 2.May 17, 2019 at 8:47 pm #1202898219
Just watched ep 7 and damn, on the one hand it felt uneventful, but it’s misleading, because it did some tremendous job with showing the characters and their struggles so to speak. The whole thing was actually pretty tense.
Sandra had an amazing scene with the character that we met in ep 5. It was probably one of the last moments where Eve voiced an honest opinion about the whole thing. Deep down she knows this is a trainwreck and where this is heading and she can’t stop it.
Also, we got a recipe for shepards pie!
I’m not sure which ep should be Sandra’s tape. Her work this season almost feels more subtle (and I love it?), but boi did I like her performance in this one.May 16, 2019 at 2:18 am #1202895905
Yes, imo this year’s drama field is simply to weak (some of them in terms of quality, some of them in terms of buzz/hype etc.) and there is no real competition for GOT.
Killing Eve is too wild and bizzare (even by the show’s standards) to be a real competition. I won’t be surprised if this year will be the only year where they will get a nom for best drama.
Better Call Saul – the show always offers a quality stuff, but it’s almost too low-key to beat GOT.
Ozark – I don’t think so.
Succession could be the dark horse, but again…I just don’t see it.
so yeah, Game of Thrones imo will win this.May 15, 2019 at 11:38 pm #1202895804
I started my rewatched of s.1-3 last week.
Truly an amazing television.
I do agree that hype/sentimentally is strong with this one. But at the same time, in terms of awards this has Twin Peaks comeback written all over it.May 15, 2019 at 10:02 pm #1202895762
This season is very odd. The last episode was fantastic and thrilling, but there is seems so much that isn’t plausible. This week’s AV Club review really nailed down how I felt. Jodie Comer is outstanding, however.
But was KE plot ever plausible? What do you guys think has changed?
It doesn’t bother me in the slightest, because s.1 set standards for it, where I knew it’s Spy level, and not The Americans level of probability and the show is very much aware of that.
That was the part of the joke, at least for me.
But I wonder what happened, because clearly people have problem with it? Is it simply too over the top?May 12, 2019 at 4:14 am #1202889831
Does this have any chance, and I mean ANY chance to get some Emmy love this year?May 12, 2019 at 4:10 am #1202889827
i know i shouldn’t laugh but ….May 11, 2019 at 9:50 am #1202888997
I like where this is going. Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh have great quemistry. I’m hoping next seaaon they hide together from the twelve or something like that, I don’t want another season of the good and bad guy.
Same. I’m hoping that after s.2 finale there will be no coming back for them and it seems like this where they are heading.
Because as much as I love, and oh boi I do love Phoebe Waller Bridge, she did leave a beautiful mess after s.1 finale. Emerald Fennell didn’t have an easy task and after some uncertain narreative steps at the beginning of the season, she eventually steadied the ship and started to do her own thing. At least that’s my impression.May 11, 2019 at 8:29 am #1202888893
pffft, talking about amazing Emmy tape for Comer. As Stefon would say: that episode [2×6] had everything.
If both will be nominated, and let’s face it – both deserve it, then sh*t is going to be intense and third party will probably win.
overall, I would say season 2 is having very solid second half and by the look of things (Riley post) – great finish. Tho I’m biased, because I was waiting for the show (and Eve) to lose it, to go even further into the wild, funny and crazy stuff. But how the audience and critics are going to react to this? I honestly have no idea.June 4, 2018 at 10:21 am #1202558703
Without Villainelle there is no Eve. Eve by herself would be fucking boring.
Yeah, maybe not boring, because I love Eve, but it is a story about that duo. It’s not about Eve or Villanelle, it’s about both of them.
The guy who wrote the book sees the story as trilogy, and while he won’t be part of the team for s.2 (he wants to finish the final book) I think Phoebe Waller-Bridge won’t be draggin the story for god knows how long. I don’t think it’s her style. I give it max 3 seasons.
But question for you guys: let’s say PW-B will want to do other things, do you think BBCA would continue the show without her?June 2, 2018 at 11:44 am #1202557742
I’m starting to wonder whether Westworld is that safe in Drama Series. I feel there’s little passion for it.
Yep. I actually have some doubts about both: WW and Stranger Things. Part of my feels that one of these two will have a rough second year at the Emmys.
