My body is ready
Super fucking pumped for this.
Is HBOGo not working for anyone else?
Scoot McNairy seems to be in everything recently
Painting missing on the wall in the Living room between the two paintings
My HBOnow wasn’t working but I’m good now.
They using West Memphis case as inspiration for this season?
Thanks you jerk
If someone said Mahershali Ali was the best actor on the planet, not sure I'd disagree
Someone quote me if this is any good
im hooked after the first episode. starting e02 meow
That first episode was fantastic. On to #2.
I am not disappointed
Pretty lame ass move to bite Fargo’s style through the use of Just Dropped In
First two episodes were fantastic. Perfect slow burn.
Just finished the first episode. Starting the second one now.
Wow. Love it so far
Really strong start to the third season.
I also noticed the missing picture hanging on the wall... wish I could binge watch this entire series Netflix style.
I have no theories as to what the missing picture means.
It’s the daughters from S1
Already better than anything in season 2. Ali is a fabulous actor, and the atmosphere so far is very reminiscent of S1.
Man Alzheimer’s and dementia really sucks ass. Curious to how that ties into the story line.
Shit I haven’t watched season one in a while so I don’t even really remember. Will have to go back.
Ted LaGrange using Robert Hebert as his new identity elicited a laugh.
Maybe the picture in the middle was a photo of the husband and wife? And it was removed because they are on the fritz?
Enjoyed both episodes last night. HBONow was having issues for a good 30min but finally started working.
My wife wouldn’t stop asking fucking questions throughout the entire episode. Does he have dementia?
It was a joke. Many posters were convinced that Marty’s daughters were behind the killings in S1.
Fuck yeah, all in again.
Ali is amazing as the old man, how he uses the facial expressions and lowers his voice. Guy is a tremendous actor.
--yes he is having some sort of memory loss/dementia
--the season preview trailer/spoiler thing at the end of episode 2 is chalked full of potential spoilers...not sure how we want to proceed with that in this thread...
--note card referring to the kids mother as being deceased
--also note of the kids leaving evidence that they planned to run away (packing a runaway pack)
--one eyed black man is going to factor in somehow at some point
I like the "girl is still alive" twist ...
I like like the dementia/3 timelines angle ...
I like the Ozarks setting. Rural America just feels better for this show ...
Stephen Dorff's presence was a nice surprise ...
Welcome back, True Detective
Lol god I totally forgot about that
So are they going to release a new episode next Sunday?
Still team put end of episode preview stuff in spoilers. I avoid them for any show I watch, at least ones where I care about the story.
I was telling Bankz that last night. The show thrives in the rural, dark, small town setting. I’m glad they went back to it. They tried to make it too big and Hollywood for season 2.
Wooo buddy have I had some adventures at Devils Den back in the day. Place is awesome.
Nsiap but West Finger is supposed to be West Fork, AR in case anyone was interested in the area it takes place.
The dolls were also part of season 1 right? I don’t think they are connected to this season but I could’ve sworn they were part of season 1
I’m curious how the mental health issues plays a role in the story. Obviously it’s key since it’s been introduced so early.
Maybe we get two different storylines and endings because of it?
His daughter being referenced a ton in EP 2. They have given different answers to where she is. Obviously the son is frustrated. Looking forward to seeing how her role factors in.
As everyone said the southern small town creepy setting is perfect for this type of show. I didn’t hate season 2 but it was such a transformation of what we fell in love with it they made it impossible to really like. Add in the other flaws and well I’m glad they course corrected.
These dolls are a lot more elaborate then the stick figures in S1.
For sure, it was just a throw back to S1. I like that they did that.
Restaurant in episode 2 with the fish tank is Herman’s in Fayetteville. Really good steak/rib house and the restaurant with the blue walls is Hugo’s, good burger joint. They definitely did a good job in using good local places.
What I'm curious about is everything in the past, is that factual or is it just based off of his memory? Bc if it's based off of his memory it could be tainted and they could use that as a device to start deceiving us.
My expectation for this season's arc:
1. Crime, which is possibly not a crime, is committed.
2. Circumstantial evidence.
3. Evidence fitted to a hypothesis instead of a hypothesis fitted to evidence.
4. Political careers, personal careers, and egos built on expedient hypothesis.
5. Unexpected event leading to denouement.
6. Investigation, coverup, saving face.
7. Crime, which is possibly not a crime, is revealed to have a very simple and possibly innocuous explanation with no real villains except for those developed after the "crime."
8. Self-reflection (for the characters and for the viewers).
"If you’re seeing it, it’s reliable. I’m not playing those sorts of games with the audience, where you find out what you saw didn’t really happen, or it was a dream within a dream or something. So he is a reliable narrator."
My thoughts after smoking a fat bowl: I think the theme of this season has to do with being in a liminal state or being in a state that's in between. In Episode 1, Hayes grabs the book "Forest of Leng" in the little boys room. It's not a real book but it could be based off Lovecraft's fictional character Abdul Alhazred describes Leng as a place where different realities converge, which might explain why its precise location cannot be pinned down.
2. The trashman vet during interrogation who says that he's in a place where he needs to leave but can't at the same time
3. Tom Purcell, the dad, who says 'I can't go to sleep. And I can't wake up' in the backseat of the car.
4. Hayes has dementia so he's stuck between reality and a purple haze.
5. The Purcell parents -- Inbetween the stage of married/divorced, always fighting, sleepin on couch.
