what they did with that script is a feat - they span like a half dozen tones throughout that show and it never feels inauthentic. Sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's macabre, sometimes it's a thriller. I don't know how they did it. I haven't had that much fun watching a TV show since True Detective 1.

As somebody who still thinks the ending of TDS1 was a little over-extended in its themes (because the villain just wasn't as existential as the show played it up to be) with Mare being just a normal ass woman with normal ass problems in a normal ass town, it made that ultimate message of finding hope, humanity and acceptance through the darkness a lot more affecting for me. They even managed to make you feel weirdly good about juvenile prison!

before I started the series and still binged it this weekend with full enjoyment. Pretty nice how neatly all the characters fit together and none of the plot points felt too forced.

One twist too many, IMO.

I was cool with the twist. But the twist twist just seemed like unnecessary string pulling.

I saw it as more of in interesting moral dilemma, and a layer to characters rather than just an attempt at heartstrings.

Could she have just let this ride? They had their perp. Could she have just gone to Lori first? As sloppy as the planting drugs thing was, we just saw she's not above coloring outside the lines when it comes to protecting your family

I guess there's a risk of the kid someday talking, but I'm not convinced that's why she did it. Aside from just the solving the case part, the cynic in me even thinks there's an element of her thinking I lost my son, why should i stick my neck out to protect yours?

Character wise it now made more sense why Lori was willing to go along with the big lie, than just some protect the family/stand by your man shit, as well as why she would even agree to raise the baby.
For John(?) who obviously was terrible for getting with Erin, in the first place, he was willing to go down as her murderer to protect his boy.

is the only place you can pull off a series like this. not specific to the content, but just the style. maybe I'm just being naïve.

anyway, Kate Winslet was phenomenal and worth watching just on her own. the rest of it was good, some of it hokey, but she makes the whole thing tick.
