I kept looking because I figured there was a thread on here for this show. Seems very much like that which many of the TWW would enjoy.

I'll leave the FPITT without any spoilers, but the show is a solid 8.5 to 9 out of 10. Much to like and little to vent about.

It seemed like there was something missing that I couldn't put my finger on, but I liked it overall even though it relies on cringe moments that give me minor anxiety.


And in 2018 tww, you might as well discuss it. Chances of this getting past 1 page are...slim.

I’ll preface by saying i have not watched a single episode...yet. I’ve heard mostly positive reviews, but even within the positive reviews, they mostly say it takes til episode 3 or 4 for it to really turn into a good show, and for a show with hour long episodes, I just haven’t been able to convince myself it’s worth starting just to get over the hump where it gets good yet.

The first episode had me into it, even though it is mostly character development. Number two I was definitely a fan. I' say by 3 or 4 I was hooked.

The cast does a really great job of playing off each other without it seeing forced; each character adds a certain amount of value to the show. I also like that even though it is a drama I still get a number of quality laughs per episode.




****Spoiler****

I really liked the ending of this season. It took what was a clear cut path to Kendall winning against his father and how quickly he fucked it up, just like his father always suggested he would. I also really liked how everyone, inside and out, gets how fucked up that family is but it's like the drug they all can't quit.

The 2nd season of this show has been so so good. Really made the slow start of season 1 worth it. The acting on this show is amazing at every character, but Kendall, Shiv and Tom are perfect.

This show is amazing. Brian Cox is PERFECT in this role.

It's crazy that Cox is great but he's barely even in my top 5 performances!

This show does dinner scenes better than any other show in the history of TV.
