Solid opening to the season, I thought. Very impressed by the opening transitions, compacting the post-Patrick period into a series of exits and entrances through doorways. Having had a few friends go through the trapped-in-a-mothers-group situation, the sequences in the pool had me laughing. And kudos to the moment between Nina and Clegg, when its him that breaks down over his loss - it was played beautifully. Not sure how I feel about the consistent presence of Patrick, although his response to the orgasm attempt was fantastic. What I can't figure out is why the hell Zara is pregnant again, so quickly. Jesus, give yourself a break, woman. (*and for what it's worth, that awesome curved art deco house that served as the exterior for Lawrence's house is on the corner of Glenlyon and Nicholson in Brunswick, Melbourne. I drive past it constantly - it's incredible*).
I'm on Season 4 on Metfix and need some place to vent. When Nina's dad called her selfish and self-righteously said that's how he was before kids, I wanted to punch him in the nuts. He was nothing but a 60 yr old man child for most of the series. Finding out he wasn't Nina's bio dad is the only thing that made me even kind od compassionate towards him. Ugh.
Episode 406 confirmed why I hate Billie.
The ending for season four was heartbreaking, but I have to say, season five is almost as sad. I haven't finished the entire season yet, but I've been crying while watching every episode so far of this season. I'm having a bit of a flashback to "Truly Madly Deeply" every time Patrick pops up.
Why didn't anyone warn me that
I'm sobbing right now!!
I just started this show and am on episode 11 of season 1. I love it!
I think it's great how they keep showing Patrick, and Nina's continued grieving. So many shows kill off a character, they have a funeral, and then it's back to life as usual. This show really shows what it's like to lose a partner, and how the loss continues to affect and inform everything you do. I love this show, although I have cried so much!
Oh I love this show so much. I wish we had a separate topic for each episode. I love love love how Nina constantly has her inner voice talking to her - mainly about her anxieties. She is so lovely and so put together but has issues. As we all do. I love all the characters and hope this show never ends. I can't stop telling people how great it is but nobody seems to know about it. Why isn't it more well known - It's a top rated show in Australia right?
I also love this show! I keep trying to get people to watch it, but no one takes my advice. I relate so much to Nina's inner dialogue and the way her anxieties manifest in imagined scenarios that then lead to goofy-looking real-life reactions.
I'm in season 4 on my second re-watch and Jimmy is annoying me even more than he did on the first run. He's so self-absorbed and entitled. He just refuses to care that his actions affect other people and that they aren't all obligated to go along with what he wants. I can't believe how much everyone lets him get away with. He's not nearly charming enough for that! Zara should have dumped him like a hot rock LONG before she ever got pregnant.
