In response to Reply # 2


  

          

My dad is a retired AP Photographer, having witnessed all the new stock agencies undercut & underpay pros, using lesser quality amature photos as leverage, the way it changed the industry was groundbreaking--but also more difficult for journalists to earn a viable living. So, maybe foolishly, but out of solidarity with underpaid photojournalists everywhere, I didn't sell it to any of the agencies.
Instead, I gave it away to ABC News and Univision--for free, but just for the initial story and not for print use.
I now have the screen shots with a visible credit and news logo, adding to my NYPD Press Credential eligibility. Which I'll apply to, so I can get my "Lou Bloom - Video Production News, a professional news-gathering service" on.

i dig the show alot...not sure how i felt about the ending. I wasn't exactly rooting for their relationship to be a success. I don't think most viewers do.

Lol @ Alison's version of events for when noah came to pick up his daughter tho.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

In response to Reply # 4


  

          

I really liked the way the story was presented. But the finale was totally unsatisfying.

Did you notice how as the episodes progressed, their versions began to diverge into completely different stories? Alison's version vs. Noah's version of the daughter retrieval had zero similarities.

Now you need a 3rd version to understand what really happened.

suspenseful either. His lawyer will probably talk him out of it and the trial'll continue.

granted, no one can really blame her. still, she's doing anything she can to get ahead (just like everyone else).

like i said, the entire cast is made up of assholes.

besides it didn't appear to me that she went after him either, it just happened.

And why do you say she was trying to get ahead instead of just falling in love with the dude?

if anything, the way she went about it was tacky. i'm pretty sure the writers can't wait to delve into her perspective, truly showing why her character fits in so well with this cast.

..she treated his writing career like novelty.

meanwhile, she was struggling to keep her store relevant, but hating on his potential for success at every turn. they were both struggling to find their own way, but he never discouraged her dreams. to top it all off, she used her parent's money as leverage.

Noah was a complete asshole at times, but Helen was far from innocent.

then watched a few episodes at my MIL over thanksgiving break.

I have the Showtime app on Apple tv.

I have no idea what anyone's name is on this show. I call him McNolty and the last episode I watched was the cab ride home from the airport where the FIL said he was getting a divorce.

I read all the post and still have no idea who said what since I don't know their names.

shut up already, damn

mainly too much forced coincidence. they kind of shoehorned reasons for EVERYONE to be at that wedding, then you get Noah, Helen, Scotty, and Alison all in the same place on a road, and hitting scotty just as he's about to sexually assault allison.. then happening to be right near Noah's buddy's house to hose off his car. it's a bit much.

that said, it didn't curb my enjoyment, and I really loved this season. i never thought they could do as much as they've done with this concept. really digging the added perspectives, and how they're mixing up the order to keep it fresh

that hottub scene was as cringeworthy as anything that's ever been on TV

that didn't necessarily make sense that i was okay with it.

I'm growing tired of the dual perspectives especially when they are so different. I be like, ok now what really happened.

lolz @ the hot tub scene. I knew who it was immeadiately.
