I kinda wanted to hate it (fuck DC) but it's just too much fun. My highlights

 

The dead cows

Lube-Man

Laurie just being sick of it all

The trap door that didn't work the first time

The Elephant (ahah!! cos elephants never forget!!!!!, Well played Lindeloff, well played!!! I yelled at the TV)

Mrs Cruicshanks big Phoenix Wright pose

The Russian guy eating a bag of wotsits with a fork

There was nothing wrong with him. It was a cracking episode. Can't wait for the finale. 

 

Nah he was a bit shit looking. One thing the movie did absolutely spot on.

 

Also nerdily irritated by

 

Spoiler

The fact he was on Europa. He said he was going to leave the galaxy at the end of Watchmen. 

 

This doesn't speak to the quality of the show at all, just my OCD.

What the fuck are you doing? As she points the TV remote control and frantically taps buttons :lol:

And done. 


It  answers it's questions (well most of them) but like the comic leaves a few unanswered (and the few "what happens next" bits up to your imagination)

 

I think the last episode might be one of the weaker, but still good. And the overall package has been brilliant.

Surprisingly neat ending, which would allow it to stand alone as a single season without needing a S2, but leaves room for more if it gets picked up again.

So, it's the adopted son isn't it.

Yea I could go for that but why no reveal? He’s a guy who slipped down a bloody drain - we definitely need to know what the hell that’s all about but I don’t think he could sustain a whole second season - everything else here was tied up so neatly. 
 

I definitely don’t want a second season. Why tempt fate? That was the best thing I’ve seen all year. Bold as brass and it really delivered the goods. 
 

Damon Lindeloff, all is forgiven.

It was definitely the weakest episode of the series, but that’s like choosing a least favourite child. I was expecting a bit more of a wow factor or an amazing twist from the big plan, which in the end felt very small scale despite its ambition.

 

But it was still great. I did like the resolutions to all the open questions, and the very last shot too.

 

Was I the only one expecting the panning overhead shot of

 

Spoiler

the wreckage after the big ball thing fell to reveal the smiley face and splatter shape, Martian craters style?


I really want to watch it all again now, to spot all the clues I missed on the way.

Well, after watching the whole series I have to say I pretty much hated it! Mostly because I didn't believe the motivation of any of the characters who were in the comic and I didn't care about any of the new characters. Still, kudos to it for not being a lazy retread of the comic

Love the 

 

theatre’s lights at the end only illuminating DR M.


 

Have to agree it was the worst episode in the series but still an amazing hour of TV. Everything tied up and that ending nice and ambiguous.

 

Am I right in thinking there is to be no second series? Would be perfect if not.

On ep3 and the dialogue for Laurie is so glaringly bad. Her entire monologue about the girl who threw a brick in the air. Ugh. “I eat good guys for breakfast” - this is stuff fans of the show think is good writing?

 

i think it might be that it has nuance and irony to it and that you may be missing some of that.

Cool, so it's just garbage but people like it cos Lindelof / Watchmen / superheroes. Cool.

No, it's definitely because the nuance went over your head. Spectacularly. You're just shitposting now.

I loved the show but still annoyed about Dr Manhattan.

He can't be dead. 

 

Spoiler

Of course he’s not. He rebuilt himself once when he didn’t even know how to do it. Doing it again will be trivial.

Somehow I'd completely missed the scene where Veight is given the horseshoe last week. Was it after the credits?

 

I lol'd like fuck when

Spoiler

I realised that the statue of Adrian was actually him. 

 

I know everyone in TV/Hollywood does it but I'm kinda tired of the generic ITS THE FUTURE SO ELECTRIC CARZ sound effect they add to every vehicle.

Also they should probably stop 

Spoiler

hitting people over the back of the head with wrenches and having them not die or at least be horribly concussed.
