^she's very good looking, agree there.

Not enough to convince me to watch though, from the few commercials i've seen it didn't draw me enough,

Anybody still watching? Three episodes so far. It's getting better with each episode so far imo. Love how Norman's intensity's picking up.

^ Haha.

 

Okay, so I was lagging it for a while hence my inactivity in this thread purposely so. I just saw the last two recent episodes last night on my DVR. I'm still tuned in. It's getting better & better imo. Pretty satisfied with this show so far. Love the seriousness of it, creepiness, the music, acting, etc.

 

I think Freddy Highmore's doing a pretty good job. Good job hiding his Brit. accent for the most part as well. I like the dynamic between he & his big bro & their relationship and I like the older brother's character overall. Norma at this point, easily seems to be way more of a nutjob imo than Norman, but that could change with time.

 

So messed up what Norman did to Emma revealing all he did with and how he feels with the other more popular type chick. Douche move. I'd prefer a girl like Emma. She's cute enough, but more importantly, probably not as stuck-up, more humble, & much less high maintenance.

Pretty much what I'm feeling.

The characters are good. They got layers.

I wish Norma was locked up a little longer.

I think it leads up to Norman killing the cop.

^ Yeah, probably, & speaking of that cop, he does a damn good job as well. Guy is very intimidating, a no non-sense no BS type of guy. Actor playing him is fantastic. Seen him in several other works including "The Dark Knight", just a solid solid actor.

He was in Lost. Nestor Carbonell. The eye liner master.

Hate that it's Modernized.  But the story is pretty good :)  It almost killed it for me when I saw someone on an iphone. 

I sort of face palmed.

But I'll ignore the "time" and go for the "lore" and lore wise they are doing a really good job.

^ I believe they said part of the reason they chose to "modernize" it a bit was so that they wouldn't be as held back or limited on certain creativity.

Did any of you here finish this? Thoughts?

 

I think it was a pretty solid first season, not great, but solid in my opinion. I'd give it a high 7 to low 8 out of 10 in my book, but I really feel the way they had things building up (& especially that last episode) and have set things up, the second season is especially due to be the better and more amazing one. I believe we will see a lot more of the true Norman. Can't wait.

I just finished it. I'd say 7/10. Some of the acting (Vera and Freddie)<br />is over the top. Still a decent show that I'd follow. <br /><br />I expected a little more from the finale. <br /><br />People seem to think Bradley or Dylan killed Ms Watson.
