Bloodline: Part 25 (2017)
Keep on going Bloodline
Wow... are we still watching Bloodline? The same show that always slowly built up rhythm to the grand finale? Forget about slowly moving things in third season. I mentioned in the first episode that the pace was very good, but in the second one we have even more sharper action. An hour with Bloodline feels like 15 minutes.
We're still at the same night, that we were in the second season finale. Everything is dark and tension gets higher and higher with every minute. Well written, well acted, as always. Every situation involving Kevin is amazing in this episode. The conversation with John over the phone, the scene in Marco's house. Everything. I also like the actor who plays Gilbert's man. His calm voice compared to panicking Kevin makes their scene incredibly tense.
What happened after that was unecpected, very emotional and kept me on the edge of seat. Superb opening to the final eight hours with the show. Good job, Bloodline crew.
Bloodline: Part 24 (2017)
That's how you start the final season
Very dark, haunting and tense opening. The whole episode takes place through one night, which I loved, and continuous the events that ended season two. Cold, black, rainy atmosphere, very nicely shot.
Literally every character is a mess at this point of the story and hasn't have a slightly idea what to do next. We can feel their loneliness, fear and confusion. Incredible emotional episode.
And what surprised me the most is that the action is well paced. The two previous seasons started slowly and the tension rose at the final episodes. Not the case with this opening, we are thrown at the center core of the action. Creators stopped messing around, it's full steam ahead now. Hopefully they can keep up the pace in the next few hours and we will experience a very entertaining season with satisfying finale.

Emotional, sad and down-to-earth episode
This is one of the best episode ever in TV in terms of dealing with death. Probably right after "Six Feet Under".
Josh's mom dies and I didn't expect that to happen at all. She was suicidal and dealt with a lot of problems, but I find the show rather positive. There is a lot of life drama throughout the series sure, but still for most of the time it makes me laugh, so I didn't think they would put such an emotional bomb on viewers right on the very end of the show.
The whole episode feels very real. I like how literally everyone is sloppy and doesn't know what to say and how to behave after Josh's mum death. First his father who is completely shocked, worries about irrelevant things like the fridge. Then Tom who wants to help, but doesn't exactly know how and is even angry at himself that he can't say anything that would cheer up his best friend. You can feel his pain in that conversation they have in the kitchen when he says that was the most difficult thing that he ever had to do.
I felt sorry for Josh so much, he was such a good son and yet he had to dealt with this horrible ending to the person he loved the most in his life. He is completely devastated. I had tears in my eyes at the end when he lay huddled in bed and cried.
Every conversation that he has in this episode is incredible sad and every person is affected by his problem. He tries to talk to his friends, try not to cry, try not to loose control, but ultimately ends the day alone in his bed.
Right before that he phones Claire and she has completely blank in her mind after she hears the news. I love that scene so much, as it's very realistic. She tries to tell him that it will be better for him as timegoes by, which is true, but she does it in very awkwardly way.
I just admire that in the entire episode not a single person says something extremely wise out of the blue like he or she knows the exact solution to every problem. Emotional, sad and down-to-earth experience.
Big Little Lies: Once Bitten (2017)
Nicole Kidman is the MVP of "Once Bitten"
All three leading ladies are separated in this episode. Every each one of them is going her own way to confront her man. Jane wants to find out if the guy found online is the one who raped her in the past, Madelaine meets the guy she had an affair with and Celeste deals with the issue she and her husband have.
The peak of the episode is certainly the conversation between Celeste and her therapist. We can see that she's lost, uncertain about how much should she tell her. Afraid, but willing to get help. The scene is very well made, the room is full of darkness, characters are covered in shadows, we can feel the tension between the two ladies. The therapist pushes her and pushes. I like how Celeste opens up, but at the same time she is withdrawn. We know she's telling the truth about her husband being a good father, but she tries to tone down the real issues. The dialogues are well written.
Nicole Kidman nailed it. This scene alone could earn her Emmy and Golden Globe wins. The only opponent of her I imagine could be Reese Whiterspoon as she's also amazing in the show. I wonder how is it going to turn out between them, as I think Shailene Woodley is a little bit behind them.
I also want to add, kudos to the creator of the show. I love how he handles the situation between Mr. and Mrs. Wright. I've seen a lot of couples in television and movies and 90% of them are basically the same. It's not the case with the Wrights. Their problem is very rare and yet so realistic. I'm very curious about how are they going to solve it. It's interesting, because they really do seem like a loving couple. Perry is great with kids, she's a good wife and mom and yet they have an issue that needs to be solved right away before it goes any further than violent sex and few bruises.
I have to say the only problem with the show is that it only has seven episodes. Would love to stay with those people for at least three seasons.
