Hugs (if you want) crying. You are not useless and you are not spoiling anything. Post away if it helps.

I canít sit still long enough to binge-watch anything.



Eta: also I can only take so much Paul. About 25 minutes a day, max.
I don't sit. I walk back and forth and around the room while watching.

Since weíre on the subject...I donít get how Iím supposed to feel about Paul. What did the makers of the show intend? Sympathy? Admiration? Detestment? I only feel the last.

The actor is very good, but I donít get what Iím meant to think of the central character.

I felt destestment for the character as well. I think the actor playing him is very good.

That must be annoying, walking while turning to your head to the screen.

I have to use the closed-captioning, so I do stuff that lets me keep my eyes on the screen, like lifting dumbbells.

I don't quite know yet myself how I feel about him. I think mostly sympathetic. I think the actor is really good, too. I get drawn in and forget he's acting.

It is unlikely that you fail at everything.
Sounds like you are depressed. How are you treating that?

I couldn't get that either. I felt like I kind of got what they were after in season one, which I enjoyed, but I stopped watching mid season 2 when I found myself thinking: Why am I even watching this? Gabriel Byrne was great in his role. I just was frustrated by the story; it felt sort of directionless.

Reading the Couch commentary, I've been wondering if I could skip to season 3 without finishing season 2.

Once published, the author's opinion is completely irrelevant. The characters belong to the audience now.
