  1. Watch episode 1-9 of season two, as well as the season finale (episode 22). You can skip the episodes in between.
  2. Seen the first three episodes now. It's stunningly brave and brilliant work thus far. The campy soap elements has been erased completely from the narrative, and the surreal horror amped up a thousand times.
  3. Good show, 7/10. It started out good and the last three episode were very powerful, but in between that it dragged quite a bit. The girl who played Hannah is a fine actress but the dude they cast as Clay is horrendous. He has more or less the same expression on his face the whole 13 hours, almost ruins the whole show.
  4. Very entertaining episode. Felt good to get back to meat of the story after all the business with Gus and Mike (however entertaining that is). I'm curious though... Why would they not disbar Jimmy after this episode? Sure Chuck was proven to be delusional, and that might explain why Jimmy said the stuff on the tape... But Jimmy still broke into Chuck's home and broke his property. That remains a crime, no matter the context. How will they justify that?
  5. The man that Mike was following in the beginning of the episode: what was he doing before swinging by Los Pollos? Just visiting random dead-drops unrelated to the story, or what?
  6. This show is so fucking beautifully filmed and directed that it makes the most mundane scenes interesting. So glad to have it back.
  7. Extended trailer:
  8. Glenn is without a doubt the best actor on the show (although Danny is fine too). He manages to create some genuinely scary scenes and then revert to comedy in a second. Can't be an easy task. I wonder though how far they will take his psychopathy. Like with Mac's homosexuality (which was "resolved" recently), Dennis' serial killer-esque character arc needs to make a progression before it becomes stale and predictable. The latest episode was great. Had me laughing out loud in a way I almost never do when watching TV.
  9. I was fairly excited for this show before it aired, but it hasn't impressed in in the least. There is almost no urgency or forward momentum. Random scenes of excessive violence doesn't cover up for the lack narrative progression. Does anyone else find it strange how much they focus on the US being the main enemy to Britain? Surely France would have that honour in this point in history? The War of 1812 was just a piss in the ocean compared to the Napoleonic Wars.
  10. So if the two timeline theory is right (which it almost certainly is), when was the last time we saw Delores in the "real timeline" (featuring the conflict with Bernard etc)? Was it when she killed that fly on her cheek in episode 1/2?
  11. Great episode! What are your thoughts on what Ford is building? Seems massive, yet no one on the show seems to know exactly what it is.
  12. I assume we're talking about the US? Electoral reform, just have the person with most votes nationwide win. Perhaps have the French system that you have a second election of no one gets the majority of the votes (in which case the two people with most votes face off). In a country as big as the US the most democratic thing would be to devolve more powers to the states and sub-state authorities, and thus bring the power closer to the people. If people see a need to retain the US as a single country, just have the federal level in charge of foreign policy and the military.
  13. While I understand a dislike for Clinton, come the fuck on America. You guys went to the fucking moon, the universe won't make any sense if you elect that simian Trump
  14. Interesting how differently people think. I imagine this to be at least 300 years into the future.
  15. Quite intriguing couple of episodes. I'm hooked. Bit confused with the timeline though. What do the guests do while the hosts are reset at the end of the day? Thought maybe they leave the park and arrive back on the train again the next morning but Ed Harris seems to remain there constantly. But I guess it'll all be answered.
