3 episodes in and this seems like a winner. Kate Winslet has been phenomenal, very gruff and grumpy exterior. There are aspects of this that seem a little too close to "The Killing" which had a great run about 10 years ago, but my wife and I are really enjoying this show thus far.

I am not watching shows that are depressing for the sake of being depressing. Is this one of those shows?

Winslet is excellent as is this series thus far, very good! I mean honestly a role I would've never expected her to be in never mind be so damn good at.

The finale was the most profoundly sad hour of television I've perhaps ever watched.
I Know This Much Is True might have Mare beat.

What an amazing miniseries. Kate Winslet was fantastic as was the entire cast. Story was phenomenal. HBO continues to give me reasons not to cancel.

Geezus. What the hell is wrong with you people? That was one of the most brutally heavy finales I’ve ever seen.

I hate all of you for getting me into this. I was avoiding the series because I thought it was about a horse.

Seriously though, great watch. And now I am sobbing like a baby on a Sunday afternoon.

This was the best one season show I can remember. Great characters. So much better than a bunch of rich bitches drinking lattes in Monterey. Actually that show wasn’t bad but this was better.

As a fan of the book, I liked I know this much is true, but I feel like Mare was better based on originality. IKTMIT was also way too dark for Covid.

I would put Queen’s Gambit a slight bit above it but agree it was excellent.

I was talking specifically about M.S.G.'s comment about the finale being "most profoundly sad hour of television." I did like Mare of Eastown better than IKTMIT as a whole.

I thought the ending of the book IKTMIT was far more cathartic and surprising than the tv show. It made all the pain and suffering seem almost worth it.
