Unless there is a twist coming ... the time jumping in Season 2 seems to be simple enough


Can't believe

It's engaging stuff, but I'm becoming more and more worried as to what the endgame of this all is. More random complications, past revelations, etc. are being introduced and hopefully this isn't going to become like Lost...

That said, I really enjoyed the stuff with young Logan/William here. And the meeting between Maeve and Dolores really let the sparks fly.

I'm assuming that Anthony Hopkins has been recruited for voice over work, otherwise that was somebody doing a damn good impression.

You always hope that - post-Lost - TV runners have a better sense of the long game, perhaps building in several 'jump points' if cancellation comes a-calling but also knowing where they're ultimately going (and how they're going to get there).

Yep, and generally I think TV has learned from those mistakes. The thing which is bugging me here, though, is the revelation that Robert has left all this messages for William. As if he was able to predict exactly what William would do after he died and planned out all this stuff. It doesn't ring true, at least not at this point.

Maybe she's hidden in... (wait for it) ... a secret bunker. Imagine if they did that.

I was actually bored this week. It doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Season 1 worked so well because of Hopkins and the intrigue - both of which are now absent.

It’s just awful.

The acting is like a B movie from hell, the plot non-existent.

Certainly after the first three episodes, it's not been up to the high standards that the debut season set, but this week's (ep.4) was fantastic & as good as its ever been. Reminded me a lot of when "Lost" was at its peak...

These split narrative, multi-threaded storylines look great on planning whiteboards, but rarely on screen.

Completely agree miles better then anything else this season so far. Hoping that it continues like this now.

Yes right back on form and the 75 minutes flew by - it seemed better without Dolores and Maeve.

It was a bit better this week, but the LOST stuff wasn’t even subtle, it was a direct rip off.

Agree with both of these.

But you could tell what was going to be written on the paper a mile off.

Interesting that

Back to snorefest-mode this week. Are we really supposed to care about a load of robots fighting each other?

It didn't advance the plot much but I was entertained from start-to-finish.

Great production values & I'm sorry but how can ANYTHING be boring when
are involved?!?
