According to a faithful reader, I'm Ordinary Times's "least thoughtful writer." So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

    I loved it as well, as much because it is so incredibly well-acted as anything, though the beauty of the setting doesn’t hurt.

    I assume the second season will undermine everything we saw in the last few minutes of the first. Otherwise, there’s no point in having a second season.Report

    I really enjoyed it also, but I will not watch a second season. Everything that needed to be said was said in the first. The acting was fantastic, but what really got me was the episode where Danny goes to Key West. That was one of the most emotionally powerful things I have seen on TV.Report

      I would have been extra fine with the show ending at about five different points during that final episode. It could have ended on that beach for example. It could have ended at that dinner. It could have ended with, “Your children have been lying to you,” especially if they’re doing a second season. And I’m fine with a second season wherein everybody else gets whats coming to them for what they’ve done but I’m baffled though by the mechanism by which they voluntarily chose to get us there.

      (Would it be fair to say that bender in Key West was Danny accepting his fate? A last meal of sorts?)Report
