Not sure why the writers think that we should be rooting for Karen & Jimmy. He's borderline emotionally abusive. His guilt trips and temper tantrums only make me wish Dev would come back into the picture. Sure, he cheated but even with that, I still like him better than Jimmy.
I loved that no one knew who Brooks was until they said "Mousy". lol.
I was kind of hoping the billionaire would buy the hospital. He was very Christian Grey-Esque which I thought would bring more steamy-dreamy-whatever into the mix.
But that last twist w/ Mama buying Jackson a hospital was pretty great.
At first, I was in full agreement about the wardrobe. But I think that the bigger issue is w/ E's HAIR. It's much too well coifed for a late 30's mother of 2 in 1981. That's what's throwing me off & not giving her look an 'authentic' feel.
I really like this show - but I'm finding it hard to be sympathetic to the 2 main characters (mostly E actually). Even a show like Dexter, which is about a serial killer, you find yourself rooting for the serial killer. And with this show, there's not enough subcontext in the character motivation to make me root for them to win over the FBI/American Gov't. ESPECIALLY after this last episode where I do think that they (at least in their subconscious) knew what was going to happen with Joyce. I'm not even surprised that E had a lover...I'm only surprised that she had actual feelings for him. That's how cold she is to me. P is great though. He's the real standout of this show.
