I KNOW BLACK FOLKS LOVE DENZEL WASHINGTON ACTING ,AND HE,S A GOOD ACTOR AND HE,S HAD MANY ROLES OVER THE YEARS.LET,S BUT LET,S BE HONEST HERE HOLLYWOOD IS VISUAL AND DENZEL HAS BEEN GIVEN A LOT OF ROLES BECAUSE OF HIS LOOKS THAT HOLLYWOOD CAN SELL BECAUSE IT,S REALLY IN IT FOR MONEY FIRST. NOW ON THE OTHER HAND I FIND THAT JEFFERY WRIGHT IS A MORE POWERFUL ACTOR WITH MUCH MORE DEPTH FOR MY TASTE IN BLACK ACTOR TODAY,AND OF THE LAST THIRTY YEARS.

I'm black and I'm actually not a huge Denzel fan. Sure, he's done some spectacular work here and there, but when I consider his total body of work, there are uninspired performances in there that I just can't get behind. He is kind of one-dimensional. Wright, on the other hand, is on another level. He is a true character actor who can dive deeper into the psyche of his characters than Denzel seems to be able to.

Good "brain muscle" training is watching stuff from Lynch. It doesn't give you necessarily absolute answers, but surely new ways of thinking.

I didn't see this twist coming but the William one was pretty obvious. Like some else said, people figure out twists all the time. The mark of a good show is whether it's still enjoyable after the reveal

I found the reveal itself to be one of the series’ few clunky moments. I saw big answers congealing, but then they kind of whomp you over the head with the funny “doesn’t look like anything to me” bit, and suddenly Ed Harris is spilling details to Delores, and it all felt a little rushed and inelegant. One reason I saw certain reveals coming wasn’t that I’m so damn smart, but that I was and am really fascinated and enthralled by WW. I am paying close attention, invested in my understanding, and thinking about it later. On the other hand, Star Trek Discovery had several big, interesting reveals that I didn’t see coming, and that was because I was not that engaged with the material. STD has some great ingredients, but it can’t compare to the sort of care and quality that WW shows us most of the time.
