Two episodes in and I really like it. But Antony Starr and that haircut...it's tough to get past. I wanna see him in that Banshee buzzcut.


Hearing a lot of good things about this one.Might start watching it.


I’m also two episodes in and man, this is one of my favorite shows of the year. Absolutely love it. It’s basically the Watchmen movie I wanted lol.

Just finished it. I loved the hell out of it. Wish it had been twice as many episodes.

Transitioned from Barry to Silicon Valley and am in S2. There's been a couple all-time funny moments already. Big fan.

Was surprised to look up that it was only an 8 episode season. Thought for sure it was only a part 1 or something.

Went to see "Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood" last night. It's good, not great. I'd give it a 7/10.

Saw it as well. Pretty much agree, Might even go as far as 8/10 IMO. Either way it's a nice volley after the crappy "Hateful Eight"

Grateful to the show runners/writers of The Loudest Voice for saying Fox is mainly the fault of an American dude.

And yet they confuse the issue by casting an Australian to play him...
I dont know who to blame!

Yeah I don't get Barry at all. I'm guessing that's the one with the little girl, which I agree was a funny episode, but overall, meh.

Edit: I see that it's not that episode.

There's definitely a suspension of disbelief element throughout the show, and someone pointed out earlier maybe it just isn't meant to be taken that seriously.

Yep, I agree. And that's something I really struggle with, which is more on me than the show. I get the suspension of disbelief. I mean, I loved the Sopranos, but that requires some of that as well. Like Breaking Bad, I just find it a little too much at times.

It took me into S2 before I came to grips with it. Aka after..

Spoiler:
Barry kills Janice


The great characters/performances carry it. Gene, Noho, Barry, etc..

I think that's the biggest problem I have with the show. I love Gene & Noho, but I really don't like Barry. And that's obviously a big problem. And Bill Hader is the reason I watched it in the first place, because I think he's generally very funny. Weird I know.

He's certainly not the character I expected. The incremental reveal of his past was excellent though.

Barry never really clicked with me like it did with others, but sitting through a show I didn't love was made worth it by "ronny/lilly".

I didn't dislike Peaky Blinders when I went through I believe the majority of season 1. My issue was that I have a hard time watching a show, supposedly in English, that I need subtitles for.
