Summer Finales

Looking forward to a refreshing Fall. In the meantime, two excellent series had their finales.

The Affair tied up all its loose ends in perfect knots. The best season since the first. Noah & Cole’s excellent adventure with Anton was hilarious. Until it wasn’t. Everyone’s character honestly portrayed to the climax. A parting shot of Lobster Roll on the Montauk Highway. Empty without Alison. Cannot imagine why a Season 5. What will they do?

Sharp Objects. More a mood piece than story. Twin Peaks-y when it was good. Music brilliant. Ensemble cast stellar. Patricia Clarkson the perfect quiet witch of a mother. Watched it twice. So rich in detail. A fun if unsavory summer side dish. Parlante!
