as that the main kid continues to piss me off.

i feel for his guilt, especially as that burden continues to pile on, but he's been doing stupid shit since even before the accident. every time you see him, you know he's just gonna make everything worse.

but the cause & effect of the show is pretty crazy/depressing. Love the setting too.

The kid is typical emo trope which is lazy writing imho..hopefully he gets more fleshed out as episode 4 shows...I get being effected by what did but a kid like that in 2020?


That cause and fact is what gives me The Wire vibe..how so much is connected and the lives of those intertwined in the incident(s)

The BB vibe with Cranston being.a more realistic human Walter White with his reaction and later decisions

why the teacher is even into this kid. because he's thoughtful and takes nice pictures? She's surely come across more impressive students. I get she has a surrogate mom thing going on with him, but the attraction doesn't make much sense, including physically. Maybe we'll learn more about her (and as you said, him) that it could come together.

Right now its my only gripe

That teacher seems like a kid herself and no, I dont see the attraction. Maybe the hurt butterfly kind of guy is her type. I cant believe she'd chance messing with a judges son...hey!

After watching the first 2 episodes, my husband thought Adam was mentally challenged. I told him was a young dumb kid making young dumb decisions on the anniversary of his mother’s death. You can imagine his reaction when they introduced the student teacher relationship.

And honestly, I don’t see how Michael pulled Lee.

My heart went out to Kofi. There was no way for him to win.

I’m wondering why Cranston didn’t push harder to make sure Kofi was secured before or once the older Baxter boy was brought in to the parish prison (OPP). He made that one call. Maybe I missed some words. And then again, maybe the officer was so concerned with the game that he paid that caller no mind.

Kofi seemed like another good kid that just got caught up in the twist.

He could’ve called so many different people to make some shit happen. Meanwhile Adam is pretty much doing everything to get caught and no consequences. Money and privilege is something else.

Another sad part (out of many) is that even when the Baxters find out Kofi didn’t do it, they’re not gonna care about what they did to Kofi’s family. And the wife has the nerve to talk about the daughter turning away from God. Crazy.

Yeah the contrast is crazy. Also Kofi was a really likable kid. Considering all the weight he was carrying had a pretty breezy personality, while Adam is an emotional wreck.

None. Plus Desire will probably clap back now. which should be interesting because even dude in prison who was breaking it down to Kofi knows they don't really have the connections and resources to go head up with the Baxters

while she is grieving and is definitely conniving.

The Mrs. played him like a fiddle which seems to be the story writers and/or director harkening to the influence that wives have over their husbands. Whether we admit it or not, they run us.

All that to say... (spoiler alert) I HATE HER because of what happened to Kofi and his family including the one surviving brother. When they talked about making a statement, I didn’t think that would be it. I thought they’d go for the gang but not the family.

i suppose the 'making a statement' was since they think Desire went after his son, it wasn't enough to go after the guy who did it or other soldiers. they retaliated by taking out the 'killer's' whole family.

And yeah the wife is terrible and manipulative but any empathy or respect i had for Baxter is out the window. This was ultimately his call.

they hinted that at least rumors of an inappropriate relationship between them go way back to when she clerked for him. it doesn't make much sense looking at the two of them now, but i bought it due the history.

WTF is this kid doing?!!! Now he's hanging out with Baxter's daughter, and he can't give his dog his meds. I have no sympathy for Adam. None.

But episode 6 debuts on the 10th.

As y’all stated above, I hate Gina and her righteous indignation.

But I’m loving Big Mo! She strolled in, said what she said and strolled right back out. Wonder if Carlo is gonna tell Jimmy that Kofi confirmed what Big Mo said. Still won’t matter, but Carlo had a noticeable reaction to what she was saying.

Was the store clerk illiterate, dumb or trying to be funny? The judge’s picture is in a newspaper, connected to a crime...he knows Michael deleted the security footage and the first thing he asks is if the bodyguard is the man Michael’s ‘wife’ was running around with.

And once again, Adam is about to pull another girl he has no business pulling.

Closing in? Nope! They’re closed and nailed shut. Will never be opened again. His Honor is stuck in the matrix now.

Your Honor is caught up and won’t ever be able to get out of the game now.

I’m waiting to see how this all works out for the son though. I think he’s the worst and dumbest son ever. And Big Baxter gon light the whole town on fire now because of the daughter.

Carlo is gonna end up pushing daisies regardless. He’s making some dumb moves but I guess Momma Baxter is always there to protect her oldest boy.

He's battling morals and probably the principles he grew up with.
And now the person who taught him those morals about being a good person
is the same person telling him to lie. He can't take it.

I think him trying to sabotage his father's plan is how he's dealing with the guilt.
People are saying he's doing stupid things to get caught,
well, that's because he WANTS to get caught. He knows he's guilty.
And if his ol' man won't listen, he's going to take matters into his own hands.

He should now though since he knows that Kofi’s family was killed.

Baxter thinks (at least for the moment) that the Dad is the one that hit his son. Other wise the son would be dead already.

In response to Reply # 0


          


Watched all of the eps, and as intrigued as I was going in it hasn't completely managed to hold my attention. Maybe its the son (lol) or maybe its not either dramatic enough or believable enough, its more silly to me than anything. And unlike that ridiculous show The Flight Attendant this show doesn't seem aware that it is completely ridiculous. That to me would be a saving grace, the same way it would work better if it was darker, if the villains were more vicious, if the son wasn't so dumb

Its aight tho! I'll probably finish this season, but please let there not be a 2nd season lol

To form the most annoying pair of characters in television history. I would angrily watch that show for years just to see both of them get what they have coming.
