Can't imagine that rules aren't broken in this thread.

Anyone see it yesterday?

I liked it a lot. Had a very Wire-esque feel to it, giving you a 360 view of the events just in a very different setting.

Oscar Isaac is the GOAT actor right now (slight hyperbole), so I'll be sure not miss it just for that.

Agreed. Simon's work always feels so authentic and realistic. Part 1 was excellent. Part 2 was even better.

This show has been extraordinary.


Could use less Springsteen tho. My goodness. It's Yonkers, not Jersey.

How are they airing this? I was watching it on HBO Now. They started the previous Sunday, so I figured they'd have the next part this past Sunday, but when I went on they already had part 4?

Anyways, I watched the 3rd yesterday. I love how they illustrate in detail how the public doesn't care about understanding complex issues, they're just like children who want what they want and they want it now. That scene where the guy on TV was pissed off about the library closing was hilarious. Laughing

Another thing I really like is is how they give a lot a screen time to the most interesting parts (the council meetings, the behind the scenes with lawyers, judges, politicians, etc.), but the brief screen time that the people at the ground level get is masterfully done. It's a lot less focused but it's so well executed you still feel for those people the same as you do for someone who dominate the screen.

They are airing 2 parts per Sunday night from 8-10 pm (EST). So the finale - parts 5 and 6 - will air on Sunday night at 8.

And yeah, great point. Also illustrated by the fact that Alfred Molina's character did the same exact thing and made the same argument after he got elected as Wascisko did.

The scenes with Oscar Isaac and Catherine Keener have been incredible. Esp the scene at the building site when she was in her car. Not a single line of dialogue but that eye contact. Wow.

What was the point of repeating the opening scene at the end of part 3 as if we're at this part and we're about to find out what happens, only to completely not do that in part 4? Or did I miss something?

Very well done by David Simon & Co.


Winona Ryder's character was cold blooded.

Yeah.

Double Yeah if you like David Simon's work and/or the subject matter interests you at all.
