  • hollywood ending.

    7.0
    i was absolutely drawn to this from the start. to me this was the show that managed to be different. darker. but it all fell apart in the last episode. although i found the location, set design and everything incredible and so well done, it all happened incredible fast and rushed. we never saw the clear motif and intention of the killer, maybe it was always intended to be like that but i think the character had way more potential. and after all we are left with a sad hollywood ending. they sustain injuries. but they get better become friends and live in a castle happily ever after. i just read that Pizzolato had another ending considered. One where Marty and Rust die in the maze and are never to be seen again. That would have been a great ending.moreless

  • Saccharine ending

    1.0
    After making a fairly complex series for seven episodes it all falls apart in a cliche-ridden last episode The detectives faces a larger than life serial killer, and after some fighting, manage to kill him. Really sad that HBO felt they had to pander to the viewers who would have been upset by a more bleak and realistic ending, with at least one of the detectives killed off, and possibly Maggie and/or her father involved.



    A shame really!moreless
  • Nice ending,

    7.0
    but like some other guys here, I was disappointed about that last episode. I wonder if they left out some unresolved issues for season 2?? I dont really believe that a fat scarred incest redneck can kill so many people unseen, even with the help of the senator.. whatever. It was a nice show to watch!
