I have to admit that I'm REALLY obsessed with it.

 

If you're a fan, do you have any predictions about how it ends?

I'm up to episode 4. Pretty impressed with the acting and character development so far.

I hadn't heard of this.  I might have to watch it on one of the rogue TV web sites, where I watch all of my premium cable shows.

The final episode (#8) airs this Sunday night, and that will be it for the story and characters. If it continues, it will be with different actors in a different story.

 

Great mini-series! I won't spoil the plot if people are still catching up.

 

Typical of HBO, there's some gratuitous sex and violence.

It was still great tv, but they left some significant things unanswered.

Just kidding with you.  I'm still going to watch it.  After I'm done season 3 of Homeland.

Loved this show. I didn't think the finale was that bad although it left a lot unresolved.

Matthew Mconehey has really matured as an actor...

I enjoyed the series. Good writing and good performances all around. The end was disappointing because it was more realistic than Hollywood-istic.

I thought the pace of the story picked up around episode 4.

Just binge watch season 1 and really enjoyed it ......

Good story and the acting of woody and Matthew, especially MM is really good .....

Started season 2 last night, looks promising with Vince Vaughn and Colin Ferrell? buy I've heard season 1 is better .....

Available at the library, definitely worth a watch .....

Finished season 2 over the weekend and it was really a convaluted, twisted story.....

Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell were really good as well.....

While the story wasn't as engaging to me and didn't receive the critical exclaim as season 1, I actually liked the season finale better than the ending in year 1 .....
