Thank you, @ChitHappens...I wasn't sure if it was right to have it there yesterday and wasn't sure if there was a thread.

 

Still looking forward to Episode 2 and 3 this weekend for me. When does it normally come on?

I was a bit confused myself and then realized what I was doing wrong.

 

Sundays.

You guys probably haven't gotten around to the eppy so I will just say "RED HERRING".  

 

I'm so damn tired of one note Kidman!  Ugh!

Last night's ending gave me CHILLS! 

 

I don't believe it was him but that was great.

So are we allowed to talk about the final episode? Lol. Will put it under spoiler tags.

I thought it was your pick as well, Cat.  In the end, she was as useful to the show as a 98 year old hooker.  I saw no point to her other than a Red Herring Wench!

 

Jonathan's Plan B was atrocious and Grace did the right thing.  

 

Underwhelming ending that didn't match the high powered lawyer hired to defend Jonathan.   

 

And YES!  Noma Dumezweni was positively marvelous!  What I love about streaming and all the new shows is that some wonderful talent is being missed otherwise.  Major networks don't believe in this kind of talent.  They just recycle the same mediocre actors.  It's boring.. 

 

Finally, the less said about Kidman, the absolute better.

I'm on Episode 2 and watching now so I just skipped right over it all.  

 

I didn't realize the last episode was a few days ago and saw it trending during POTOMAC.

 

I'm half way in and wow...still loving and trying to figure out what could be going on. She just found out that the husband's job is not his job. So...?

 

Nicole Kidman's mane is boss.

Cat & Chit, agree with both.

 

When Jonathan wanted to blame his SON, he made (another) fatal mistake.

 

The killer/ending was slightly underwhelming but overall I'm very happy with the series.

 

Hayley was AMAZING. I will never forget "I am not funny."

Moving through Episode 4 (and will probably take a break)...

 

...if the Husband did not do it, he is doing a great job of acting like he didn't. And yet so many questions off of him. 

 

I agree with his lawyer though.

 

He and Grace are both withholding. But the question would be...what?

HAHAHAHA!!! Episode 5 and the lawyer got that officer all the way together. 

 

LOVE.

 

Great scene over what was said as well as the subtext I suspect the writers were going for by saying the officer was more interested in the rich white man than the not rich ethnic man.

Just got done. And agree.

 

It had great flow, twists and turns, and I had so many ideas for how it could end. All shocking.

 

But...that ending?

 

Meh.

 

lol. 

 

The acting was spectacular though.

Red Herring is right. I read an article somewhere (can't remember where otherwise I would link it here) that posited that the entire show is basically red herrings. The fact is, the murderer is very obviously right in front of our eyes but all the way through, we kind of disbelieve that he might be the murderer -- the same way Grace questions it throughout.

 

In effect, the audience goes through a process of self-delusion too -- part of which, of course, is due to the way we have been 'conditioned' by shows like these never to believe that the actual murderer is the first and most obvious suspect.

 

Noma was great, and apparently a highly acclaimed British theatre actor! The prosecuting attorney was played by a Danish actor (she was lead in the original The Killing in Denmark and was brilliant), and Edgar Ramirez who played the police officer is Venezuelan. I love that we get to see actors we wouldn't necessarily find in mainstream US TV. Noma inhabited the character of Haley like a second skin and stood out in every scene she was in.

So, rumor is there may be a S2...?

    • There is this weird denial about what is going on. Cases are rising again and some variants are more communicable and infect younger people at a greater rate than the original virus. Good lord, Michigan is in a state of complete disaster. But sure, let's open up when we should probably be closing down again.   I've been volunteering at a nursing home and you wouldn't believe (actually, I know you would) how many people give me flak about needing to mask up if they want to hug their elderly relation. I admit, the rules are a lot like prison visitation. A thirty second masked hug before and after the 20 min visit. But it's like people seem not to understand that even if they are vaccinated a variant could break through and infect all these vulnerable elderly people before anyone realizes it's happening. This pandemic is not over.
    • @Mr. Vixen It's really good. I like it.
    • Wait... So on top of Queen Giner, Lydiot is gone too? The dumbest but most entertaining villain in RH? That's me out. Sorry, but Shine Shine Shine can't make up for the loss of Gina and Lydia.

    • First...*waves @Mr. Vixen* and congrats on the next book.   I think...it's Brenda so what could go wrong? Please register in order to view this content   But seriously, it is a great concept. And ohhh how my mind sees so many angles and what you wrote. I would love to see a series like this.   As for me...I might have to chew on what I would do as a spinoff for a spell...:)
