    Couldn't agree more.
    I have been watching and finding it hard to grasp that they are both Mark Ruffalo - he's incredible!


    I'm enjoying the general feel of the show and the soundtrack - I can't believe there's not more chat about it - anyone else watching?

    Powerful stuff. Three episodes in and need to decompress after. It's grim, hard hitting but excellent.

    Every actor is excellent. Loved the Juliette Lewis piece

    Watched the first episode at the weekend. Found it more tragic than sad.

    This is the kind of show my wife and I might watch together, with me convincing her by saying ; "It's Mark Ruffalo- one of the most watchable/understated actors around". But as we're in Covid times I haven't even broached it; nothing tragic allowed. I think this will be one on the 'to watch' for a while, but I am looking forward to seeing Ruffalo in a dual role in a strong story.

    finished this last night - Mark Ruffalo amazing in it and deserved awards ! Very tragic story ... not one to brighten the mood in these covid times but I found myself engaged and wanting to watch next episode.

    It's horribly depressing but also quite beautiful and hopeful in places too. I think the overall journey is worth the pain. Ruffalo is excellent in it too.

    One of the best series I've seen in the last few years, but, yeah, don't watch it if you want to feel happy!

    Myself and my wife watched and finished this over a three day stint, at first we were cursing the person who recommended it, as state above its grim, heavy and not at all easy.

    All that said, its superbly acted, brilliant story telling and I would be recommending it to others, obviously advising of the heaviness but its easily one of the better shows to be on tv the last few years.
