I’ve mentioned this show here before but only now were we able to finish watching the whole first season.
It’s a crime drama series with a clear nod to Lovecraft’s Cthulhu myths and it explores certain moments in the lives of two detectives who are investigating the horrific murders of several young women.
It’s intimate, slow paced, intricate, and it has a beauty to it that convinces you that the people involved in it truly loved what they were doing.
We’ve been re-watching this amazing series in the last few weeks.
Funny how, even though it’s set in 1980 in some small town in the US, it’s really close to my experience as a teen in high school in Portugal around 1995.
It’s brilliantly written, and the actors do a great job in bringing the characters to life.
The series was canceled after only 12 of the original 18 episodes were aired. We still have one more episode to go and I’m already sad to know they will be gone soon. Maybe in 15 years I can watch it again and love it all over again.
If you don’t know the series, watch the (annoying) trailer:
Last year I talked about how much I liked Breaking Bad. Since the beginning of the show five years ago, there was never a disappointing moment. Now it’s over and I just wanted to say: Well done!
This is one of the BEST SHOWS ever made for television. A cohesive piece of work with a beginning and an end that takes us through a myriad of situations and emotions that are matched by no one in the industry at this time.
Thank you for so many hours of nerve racking, nail biting, belly aching quality entertainment.
30 Rock – It’s better than ever. I’ll be very sorry to see Jack Donaghy go, though.
Alcatraz – Because of what I learned with Lost, I’m not expecting a good ending to this plot. Yet, the journey until now is pretty enjoyable. I love the use of historical facts mixed with science fiction. Gives everything a much more plausible thread.
