I liked it. No UFO.
Bit formulaic I thought. We've got a nice cop - check, a businessman in above his head - check, a blundering criminal - check, and sibling rivalry - check (and a couple of bodies).
Prologue was interesting as to how that fits in.
But close - instead we had an improbably accurate falling object!
Clearly a body double...
Clearly how? Is MEW herself lying when she confirmed it? She even got into shape for it!
Plenty of actresses have denied using body doubles even when it was obvious.
So you chose to dismiss the available evidence and double down with a contrary assertion for which there is no evidence. Okay...
One of my biggest fears in life is our air conditioner falling out of the window and crushing someone..
Available evidence? You mean taking her word for it? She fakes sincerity for a living. I have it on DVR. I guess I could re-watch that scene 50-100 times (would make me a perv?).
Although she may not have appeared naked in any other part before, she has shown some skin. I doubt she would have any issue doing the scene in question.
Anyway, I enjoyed the first episode. I wonder if the brothers end up forming an alliance by the end?
The upcoming preview with the male sheriff now makes for two actors from "Boardwalk Empire" in this. You can't go wrong relying on that show for your cast.
.....especially in the dead of winter.
Carrie Coon is having a moment, what with this show and "The Leftovers" on HBO.
When I hear Ewan McGregor as Ray, I hear William H. Macy as Jerry Lundegaard.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead is a badass (metaphorically), and a pretty good shot.
This is one of those shows where the music is a character. Music supervisors are really earning it these days.
Can we give Michael Stuhlbarg his own show pleeeze? (and I wonder how often he gets mistaken for Joaquin Phoenix)
We're all gonna know a lot more about bridge now.
"Let me flip a b-ward"???
What was that weird music used during the house search and where has it been used before? I feel like I've heard it in another TV show or movie.
Maybe you heard it at a satanist construction site!

I love that I can count on a vibe with this show. It starts slow and methodically. Gives a few brief introductions...and then chaos ensues. It isn't unusual for me to say out loud a "...oh YAH..." while this is on.
That's what I thought too. But there was. Those sneaky bastards. The old man, the stepdad of the lady cop was watching tv. And what was on that tv, for just a brief moment, looked eerily similar to last year's massacre at Sioux Falls when light from a spaceship shined down on them.
Perhaps you could post a continuous animated GIF of that scene so that we could all weigh the evidence. Maybe a 2nd one as well where you a flip a b-ward and she lowers back into the tub.
After multiple "inspections" it seems that I was wrong. It is her.
She's got a real nutcracker back there.
Hate to see her go; love to watch her leave...
Yeah, those squats really paid off!
Plot wise, a good episode, but I'm finding there are way too many dumb/stupid characters designed to get cheap laughs.
What was with Carrie Coon not being able to set off the door sensor? Was that supposed to be a reference to her character on 'The Leftovers' not being able to operate touchscreens or something else? Seems weird they'd just throw that in for no reason.
Anyone else suspect her deceased Hugo (?)-award-winning stepfather might have been the guy who was obsessed with UFOs in the last season? Remember, when Patrick Wilson was waiting in line for gas? Or at least someone who's hidden past might tie-in with the flying saucer. Someone saw something and he'd be about the right age.
Really? On this show you don't need a reason to throw in weird!
