It's a different tone. Not even really a comedy.
 

He did this in Season 2.  Did you not see Season 2 ?

He did what? Change the tone? Each episode of Season 2 had a different feel but there was still the under current of his relationship with the Italian girl.

The tone of this season isn't even remotely comparable.

Yeah, I thought so ... by the end of Season 2 I recall it to be distinctly in the style of European art film which he seems to be continuing.

Maybe I misremember.

I'm talking about long, slow moving scenes with little plot or camera movement.

I've only seen one episode, and it's been years since I saw the previous episodes. But the tonal change is obvious.

Long establishing shots of moss on fences, farm animals and decor. AND the Zack Snyderesque choice of using a 3:4 aspect ratio.

1. Yes, from season 1.
2. I don't think it's working anymore.

Compelling TV. Looking forward to the finale this coming Sunday.

This model of getting A-List movie stars to do limited Miniseries' seems to work well.

Here's a funny parody.

The small town motif where everyone is everyone else's business seems weird.

Not new but does anyone watch Moosemeat and Marmalade? I really enjoy it.

So ... we're posting about TV and Movies again.

Has anyone seen COUNTERPOINT ?

Although it flagged near the end of season 2 for a few episodes ... I thought at a time it was better than Breaking Bad.
