Did You Know?


The opening scene (in which Wayne helps Becca move into her college dorm) is the first scene that does not occur within the established time lines of 1980, 1990 and 2015. By using the ages of Wayne, Becca and vehicle models, it is likely that the time frame is set in the early 2000's. See more »


While Wayne is examining the phone records, his pager begins buzzing. He places it on the desk and ignores it as it continues to buzz. The shot cuts to Amelia listening to the phone ring as she tries to page Wayne. That is not the way that pagers worked. Instead of listening to the rings, Amelia would have called the pager number, entered her phone number when the system answered, and then would have hung up and waited for Wayne to call her back. The shot should have cut to her holding / looking at the phone receiver waiting for the call. See more »

The Ending Had Better Be Good!
21 February 2019 | by dougmacdonaldburrSee all my reviews

The last episode of this season had better be incredible or I will be furious. Season 3 has been such a slow build and there are still so many questions left to answer. If the final episode does not deliver it will be extremely disappointing. I probably will not even watch Season 4. I'm not confident that they can tie it all up in one more episode, but, I hope they do.
