    didn’t thnk there was anything weak about it at all really, story was always about them 2 as characters as opposed to breaking open some massive conspiracy(that lots of people have be talking about online ). quite liked the last few lines of dialogue. after all the darkness, a kinda uplifting note to leave it all on imo.

    It was just that last scene really I’d have prefered it without the uplifting note just feel it would be braver to end without it. I’d rather be left feeling slightly raw than feeling warm and fuzzy.

    Sort of like how Disney sanitized Cinderella in the original tale the ugly sisters cut their feet down to size to fit the slipper but are given away by the blood and face a gruesome execution. I don’t want to get too specific cos it’ll give too much away but I felt ideas explored in earlier episodes were sanitized by the last scene.

    Other opinions available and equally valid ๐Ÿ™‚

    All opinions are valid, I just thought it was good that the 99.9% of darkeness in the show was balanced out a tiny wee bit at 0.1% at the end ๐Ÿ˜†

    I thought the ending was bang on with just one exception. Won’t elaborate here due to spoilers. Having said that, it is in fact made somewhat (or maybe totally) possible/plausible when referenced by one of the lines 2 mins from the end.

    Great show, really enjoyed it, there was something about ep8 that just felt a bit off, sort of rushed, like I said though, still great.

    I watched the first ep loved it so I “cough cough” found the rest and watched it in one go from start to finish. good tv and cracking performance from woody .

    I have to say I could not have watched on a week by week format.

    Hmmmmm loved the entire series. Best thing on TV for a while…. But…. Last episode was a little weak. Bit of a let down…… Apart from the dialogue between russ and woody. Awesome show… I think the ending was always going to be a let down.

    Watched it this weekend, and found it a bit disappointing. Never seemed sure if it was driven by the plot or the relationship between the two main characters and somehow fell short on both counts.

    Ultimately the mystery just wasn’t as “clever” as the scene that was set, the cinematography created the tension and mood, but the script failed to match.

    Woody Harrelson was also at best average in it, he was completely out acted by Mcconaughey. That alone just lead to wishing they had spent more time exploring Rust’s dysfunction and back story than they did, and given Harrelson less screen time.

    It is good, but it doesn’t come close to living up to the hype and fawning that has been lavished upon it.

    just finished watching it and im in the same camp. very good, well acted, but i got lost in parts, sometimes cos i just couldnt make out what had been said in that quiet, southern drawl.

    very good indeed tho, it was the acting and atmosphere that made it, as i didnt think the story was really up to that much.

    I thought they balanced each other very well. Two characters of Rusty’s stature would have been overwhelming.

    So, Colin Farrel and Vince freaking Vaughn! I thought Mcconaughey was useless until he did TD so I’ll ‘try’ and keep an open mind.

    Colin Farrel is a good actor. S’all in the eyebrows.

    Been watching ‘Gomorrah’ in the meantime? Abloutely brilliant.

    Have not seen that.

    Yeah Farrel is good but can Vaughn play anything besides annoying? Will Ben Stiller be the bad guy? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    oh sweet jezus

    After the success of the first season, you’d think they could get somebody better than that pair of jokers.

    is disappoint

    Vince freaking Vaughn!

    OOoooof! The man who hasn’t made a decent film since Swingers.

    …apparently the new director did the Fast and the Furious films. Although, he is only doing a couple of episodes. Several directors on board for the season.

    Harumph.

    Don’t know as I’d know either of them if I fell over them. I saw “Vince Vaughn” and thought “oh, the guy who did Breaking Bad?” …

    You don’t know who Colin Farrel is?

    Its’ probably fashionable to not like him as he’s a bit of a celeb. Brilliant in Tigerland and that there one that Jamie posted, amongst others.
