  1. Is this going to be like Maniac, where you tell everyone to watch it, then I watch it and want to talk about it, and you confess to having quit after three episodes?

  2. I Loooooooooved it. I want to go back and watch it again. The Tom Waits part was excellent, but if no one else has watched it, I will refrain from saying anything else about it.

  3. I’ll have to watch it a couple more times to see what really rises to the top. Meal Ticket was haunting.

    When Tom Waits got shot it made me think of Will Ferrell’s “You shot me!” from Austin Powers … because I’m an idiot.

    1. I completely missed what was really going on in The Mortal Remains (the last one) until I heard the Coen brothers discuss it on Fresh Air. That might be my favorite.
