My posts are better.

No, I think your body was right: it was a snoozer.

Too bad it's not fun to watch that way!
IncantatioN said:I didn't get the point of keeping Ray alive like that ... does that mean the Birdfella was expecting him and didn't have live rounds or he didn't intend to kill him specifically or didn't intend to kill anyone who walked into the place? Fire these kind of rounds to help with an escape?
It really didn't make sense considering that, besides the opening that they could have used either way, this was his least vital outing.
If he's going to continue like this, he might have been better off dead and a TV martyr. Anyway, the only way they can redeem this whole thing is if they payoff the line, "like cops use." Otherwise, the whole thing is completely dumb. BTW, so you the prophecy from the opening dream will come to pass and he's going to end up with those fatal wounds?
IncantatioN said:But what's with the sexual direction this season? Crime scene full of weird sex stuff, Frank and his infertility, Ani and her weird/ hardcore sexual side, Woodrugh's repressed gay side ...
Yeah, and it's all sexual and parental issues 101 stuff. *yawn*
IncantatioN said:With the media war between those two directors, notice how the film maker in this episode had a slight resemblance with Fukunaga? Think Pizalatto's written the character as one of the bad guys?! aaii yaaii yaaii that's spiteful.
Incredibly so, and it really only reinforces the bad press Pizzolatto has gotten.
Update: Well, as I somewhat expected, something finally happened last night! Or did it? Considering it's already almost certainly a red herring, even to the principals, what's this have to do with the case or by extension the show? I'm no wizkid novelist or TV writer, but you should probably make the case the show is about inherently interesting, rather than something you need to invent interesting diversions from. Just sayin'. =)
Anyway, I saw an EW headline this morning calling last night's ending divisive, which I immediately thought was a good thing for the show since previously everyone was pretty much in agreement that it sucked.
