Re: Counterpart - JK Simmons

If anyone dropped this they more or less explained the entire thing in yesterday's episode. Pretty good but man if I hope this is a 3 seasons and quit show but to be honest if its not I won't be there.

Re: Counterpart - JK Simmons

That may have been my favorite episode of the show.

They did such a great job assembling and explaining the backstory.

The only real quibble I have is why did the rats want to kill the other sides rats so bad. (Outside the parallels with the humans)

As shown by most of the characters, they hate their counterpart when they figure out they’re out there. They’re jealous about their life or what they have. Main character is jealous that his ex wife is fine in the alternate universe. The scientist is mad his son and family are gone due to the incident.

Re: Counterpart - JK Simmons

Like the show, but I need an app that explains which character is which and what their current motivations are to keep up. Emily Silk living in the Alpha world (our world I guess) is especially confusing since she has apparently lived in both worlds and worked for both worlds. (I find her quite attractive for some reason). The whole bloody conflict seems to be based on the tenuous assumption that the Alpha world intentionally start a flu epidemic in the Prime world which I'm not sure was ever shown to be proved on the show as far as I know. Still like the show.

Re: Counterpart - JK Simmons

I suspect it'll end up somewhere else. FWIW - they stuck it in a very tough time slot.

Hopefully Amazon Prime or Netflix will pick it up. It's a good binge show.

I guess some do, or only have one of those DVRs that only lets them record 2 things and then they can't watch something live, like sports, while those are recording.

Re: Counterpart - JK Simmons

wow what a shame.

there's literally 60 other prime time shows that shouldve been canned before this show was even considered.

i dont suspect anything close to a finale we deserve either. yuck.

Re: Counterpart - JK Simmons

IDK. Great premise ruined by bad directing and even worse showrunning. Half the time its difficult for even those paying attention to figure out what's going on any one scene or even what side it is. And awful stuff like Ian suddenly being from the other side is just lazy. If you're going to make a show like this at least plan out an arc before hand. Even Fringe of all things got that right.. mostly.

Is it possible they switched so Howard prime ends up with wife, kid, no flu; and Howard 2 lives on because immunity from his side?

No. Howard Alpha was returned to his world as part of some agreement one of the Emilys (I think) made in e9.

Howard Prime crosses back to his side with Baldwin in e10.

But I may have to rewatch to be sure. hard to do from memory.
