Spoiler alert but this was on one for the other forums I go onPosted 3 years agoseosamh77Subscriber
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.Posted 3 years agoDanny79Member
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.

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.Posted 3 years agosadexpunkSubscriber
Alan Pardew could pick up a few pointers from Ep8
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.Posted 3 years ago
