Off to a good start. Ali is always strong, if maybe a little too understated. The story is very interesting, at least so far.
You seem so excited and I hate to burst your bubble! Saulnier only does the first 2 episodes so enjoy them while you can. I agree, he was a perfect fit, and I lean towards agreeing with @nelsonmuntz's take on the show.Whoa, first episode was absolutely stellar. Saulnier was a great choice. His slow burn type of direction fits really well with the story thus far. Shame he only did half the season I think. @Walker11 if you've got HBO, check it out.
Gonna watch the second ep, hope they can keep it up. Would be pretty cool if this somehow ties into the first season.
Oh yea, I knew he dropped out after a few episodes. Didn't realize it was just two.You seem so excited and I hate to burst your bubble!

The only other director who I actively look out for and will watch anything they do is Fukunaga, ironically enough. You may recall that he was the guy who directed every episode of S1. Sin Nombre was awesome.
Yes have to agree on Ali rewinding it a few times myself and a couple times unsuccessfully. Scoot has been great and liked him on HC&F also.I started late but breezed through the first 5 episodes and saw 6 live last night. Really liking the show and the acting has been fantastic. Ali, Dorff, and McNairy are knocking it out of the park. My only nitpick is sometimes not understanding Ali when talking.
Like seeing Scoot again after playing Gordon in Halt and Catch Fire.
I've really enjoyed it, not everything needs to be a twist. There still probably will be some sort of twist though.I enjoyed the beginning episodes, but I'm starting to think it's going off the rails storyline-wise. One more episode to go, but I think they've already telegraphed the conclusion.
Because she's gorgeous. intelligent, and challenges him.Through Episode 5. This season is almost Tarantino-esque in that there are several incredible scenes throughout the show but it isn't quite tying together.
Also, I don't know if it is deliberate, but I hate the wife. The actress is fine, I think, but the character is so unlikeable, that I struggle to see why he married her.
And then Purple wisened up, she was the best thing that ever happened to him.What was the brilliant analogy he used about her being a pretty bird that was scalitoing on his head?
She was manipulative, insincere and ruthless. That isn't challenging him, that is abusing him.
