Looking forward to tonight's episode. There's nothing like a good story, well told.

Yep I'm glad season 3 is off to a good start so far.
I really enjoyed season 1 but couldn't get past the first two shows of season 2.

I feel like you have some unique insight into film. I hope you're willing to lay out your thoughts a bit as the series progresses.

I enjoyed your Boardwalk Empire observations, as well as classic movie insights.

Thanks.

Two episodes in and I really enjoy it so far. Great casting, great acting, and fantastic writing! If it keeps up, it may, just may, replace season #1 as my favorite.......maybe. Big Grin Though I doubt they can come up with an ending dialogue like the first season between Woody and Matthew (about the darkness versus the light).

This last episode made me think of a little ditty I wrote a few years ago:

Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I die before I wake,
Watch out for the Claymore in the hallway.

So, what is your take on the Caucasian man standing among the Vietnamese behind the aged detective in his room? Anybody have any thoughts?

I thought it was Roland.

Yes, it was Roland.

I like when he asked the Vietnamese phantoms "Do they still make Mercury?"

Unfortunately, the writer feels the need to project social mores from this century, onto people living in 1980. One example, the sobbing bullshit remark from the kids' father: "I'm sorry I used that word" and a bit later "Please don't tell him I used that word."

FFS. It just doesn't ring true. A conversation taking place in 1980 should not be lensed through social attitudes forty years in the future.

And, once again, I take note of Mamie Gummer. She strikes me as a capable and talented actress.

Agreed on "that word."

I am also always dubious of Hollywood defaulting to Catholic churches in the South. We'll see if they are trying to tie into the Catholic church's historical issues with children, but the fact is that other churches have issues as well, and Catholicism is just not the major denomination in the south, especially in the rural south.

I thought I noticed Roland limping in 1990? And in the scene referenced above, wasn't he on the house side of their police car heading toward the idiot redneck? I guess we will find out next week.

My college roomy deployed them in I Corp trail ambushes back in the day. Had to set them off one night. He said Claymores will fuck you up good.

He is limping in the future. I want to say one of the after-show previews (maybe last weeks') showed Roland getting shot, though.

Great episode. Anyone note that the kids in the woods were playing Dungeons and Dragons, but they did not actually say it. 1980 was pretty early in its heyday.

I tend to think the boy was secondary to the girls disappearance, which I'm guessing was an abduction, or she went willingly into some sort of cult. We'll see of course.

Yeah I noticed that as well. History is different when you have lived it rather than read about it. Pizzolato was born in 1975. I think one reason the first season was so good was the fact that the writer was from South Louisiana.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I love the fact that Claymores come with printed instructions. Even so I can imagine some being pointed the wrong way.

Did you guys see what was on the TV Producer chicks laptop screen when it was turned to face Hays?
It was a reference to Season 1.
Possible tie-in later?

I've been puzzling over this scene. Perhaps the shadowy men are all the people whose deaths Hayes feels responsible for.

And why the man in the suit (Roland?) is among them is really pestering me. Are we to think that Hayes killed Roland?

Oh, by the way, which one's "Pink?"
