    Fantastic show, it literally gets better with every episode so all I hope now is that in case the ratings aren’t good enough for F/X, it will somehow live on Damages/The Killing style…come on people, you know it is pretty much tailormade for Netflix…

    I have watched the first 5 or so episodes and did nothing for me.

    reasonable (costing only cents in cities by the beach and online through Quality Shells) and tie a ribbon through one of the holes making an ornament as well.

    wonder if the music stopped or if something is wrong with the computer.

    Why is it on with those awful ratings?

    I recorded it and watched it today but the last few minutes were cut off. Did it run over?

    Keri getting involved with matthew rhys which broke up her marriage I think hurt the show. I couldn’t care less, the show is awesome but Keri lost some of her darling charm which translates into viewership loss unfortunately.

      Yes, because SO many people care about Keri Russell’s personal life….And what darling charm? WTF are you even talking about?

    I thought the episode was amazing. I like how they’re addressing the family theme this season. I do think it’s the kind of show that would do well as binge watching, a la Netflix, or similar. There’s a lot of players and plots occurring at the same time, with some carried over from last season. It can be confusing if you don’t keep up. I almost gave up last season, but stuck with it and glad I did. It looks to be a great season.

    FX Ratings are not as high as they can get on TNT or USA which are watched more.. In my case, I watched live and recorded other stuff.. … The extreme buzz this show has should help.. It has been available on Amazon Prime for catchup purposes though FX ran repeat marathons in the middle of the night from last year this month…
