    "Split" gave me renewed faith that Shyamalan had recovered some of his early (and perhaps undeserved) hype.

    "Glass" took that faith and drowned it in a puddle.

    That the man still finds work, and somehow contrives to have his name put in the titles, is kinda baffling.

    Hold on WTF, is that baby dead or a robot?


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice

    Is this their creepy horror show or something?


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice

    D'oh.. thought it was out this weekend! :(

    Looking forward to it..

    So the Shyamalam twist at the end of the first season won't really be the twist as that will come in the second season now or the third season or the fourth season.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    It's sooo borderline creepy for me in deciding to watch or not.

    First 3 episodes drop tomorrow looking forward to it now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,482 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Damm I liked that first episode creepy as fcuk then the final scene.

    Going with 30 minute episodes by the looks of it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 43,449 ✭✭✭✭ Basq


    Watched the first 2... decent!

    The cast are decent, but Kebbell is the standout IMO.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,482 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Finished the first three and its developing into a good mystery.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    1: WTF!

    I was all like... ah ye, shur the twist is gonna be about yer man and how he's coping

    or maybe even.. this could be way in the future and the nanny could be a robot or something


    but awe no.. nope.. it was that end scene!


    I did spot the M. Night Shyamalan cameo though :) The delivery guy.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    2: I dunno.

    Is it about him coping with something? Is he imagining the brother? But then she would be too. Unless she's just going along with him (like he thinks he is with her). What's he doing to himself with the splinters? Did he eat the yoke?

    OR is it supernatural, is the girl doing something, did she steal a baby, is it her baby?

    I'm kinda leaning towards the idea that something suspicious in an M. Night show.. might well not be the twist.. and the unsuspicious things could well be.

    The wife staring off into the distance like that could be her going catatonic but it's also got me back to the Robot theory!


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    3: Awe now I dunno.

    Now it looks like Leanne is up to something... unless yer man is imagining loads of stuff.. but if he is then the Tobey stuff is odd.

    Definitley a mystery!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,333 ✭✭✭ Doodah7


    This is so good!! The whole lot of them are so narcissistic and neurotic but you can see from how the story is unfolding why.

    The series almost works like a stage play with the small cast and the pretty much only one location.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    4: I don't know. It's like a lower-everyones-defenses episode or something


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    5: Right, I'm lost again.

    Maybe the husband + real/imaginary bro has started paying people to get rid of her or there's a few people scoping the house out to rob it

    What about Uncle George??


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    6: Right... Yeah, No, the brothers real. Something definitely up with Leanne :eek:

    Yes indeed, What about Uncle George and that doll! What about Aunt May! I'm not sure I want to find out about Aunt May! :eek:


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 333 ✭✭ Martin Tyler AgueroooOO


    It really confusing and intriguing and the dog this week. Ron Weasley is great in it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    7: That was really confusing. So the brother isn't imaginery. Now wondering if Leanne actually brought the baby. We just saw the husbands imaginary take on that. Maybe her and her Uncle (and the dreaded Aunt May) are just some really religious family that had something wierd happen. Now Shyamalan is throwing a curve ball with the brother and this therapist agreeing they did something terrible.. like are they just talking about the illusion? Is there some bigger conspiracy... I dunno, it's all really confusing.. or maybe like.. back to wide open on what the big THING Shyamalan is gonna have been there the whole time.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,333 ✭✭✭ Doodah7


    More weirdness! What’s the story with dog/wolf/lion cub? What was it? Dorothy not looking delighted with Julian copping off with her friend!


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    A lot of it has gotta be Shyamalan dodging and weaving around us trying to figure out what his big twist is gonna be. Dogs could easily just be the part of the stray Dogs in the city news bit that Dorothy had been covering.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    8: Well, I'm a bit more lost after that one. Though it definitely pushes the question of WHAT DID THEY DO!? a bit more into mind now.

    It's like.. whatever about Leanne .. it's as if they did something pretty bad.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 333 ✭✭ Martin Tyler AgueroooOO


    Ok I can safely say I have know idea what the hell is going on.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,333 ✭✭✭ Doodah7


    Interesting that Julian went looking in the bath and the washing machine!! It is also interesting to google the meaning of a pearl in the mouth and how it relates to Chinese burial customs.

    The programme is getting weirder by the week...

    I'm starting to wonder did one of them kill the baby.
