    I've probably seen that episode, about 35 years ago!! Definitely didn't read the story. I might have to go find the TZ episode now!!

    It was cool to see how he really looks. Of course that clued me in that he passed on.

    In an interview the actor who played Harrow said he got to keep a mask.

    I noted that they have often cheaped out on the CGI/makeup of Harrow's uncovered face. This last time they just shot him from the good side.

    Emmy nominations: Jack Huston. Gretchen Mol already won, right?
    Stephen Graham, a Brit playing Al Capone, is gonna make a run at it.

    Eli wins for having the best hat.

    I'd say that Buschemi is due but he does a lot of playing Buschemi.

    There weren't any scenes too dark for me. Maybe all of you need new TVs? :)

    I didn't notice anything too dark either. I watched via HBO GO (if that matters).

    I watched on my 58" Samsung Plasma. :)

    This season seemed so short. I enjoyed it all and wish there were more episodes.

    Poor Mr. White. :(
    Poor Mr. Harrow :(

    Eli has nine lives. Well... now 7.

    [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DocXC-kobmU[/media] Twilight Zone. According to Wikipedia it was the last episode produced by Rod Serling.

    It was also made into a short movie [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuP5kUQro40[/media]

    Also it was an Alfred Hitchcock Presents episode

    The basic conceit has been used many times. Remember that the entire 8 years of Newhart were just a dream of Bob Hartley's. :)

    Technically the 1962 movie was bought by the TZ producers and with a little editing (like Serling's Stand up at the beginning), shown as a TZ episode.

    Whether you watch in a dark room or a bright room can make a lot of difference in perceiving shades of gray and black levels on your display.

    If you've never adjusted the brightness from the settings Costco set for store viewing, you could probably see it bright enough :)

    Mine is 7 inches bigger than yours ;) :D

    So who did Uncle Junior (the elderly lawyer) say hired the Pinkertons? was it him? he said something along the lines of "I owed Louis something". Is Louis the Commodore? and he did it to punish her for turning his house into a whorehouse?

    it not, what?

    Mine fits the opening perfectly! :D

    ..

    That's a good question about why he hired them (I'm sure it was him... otherwise why would he have been there for that scene). I think it really comes down to his "old boys network allegiance". Not so much punishment for the whorehouse as trying to keep things in the control of men (or even boys).

    Yes Louis is the Commodore, and IIRC Gillian suffocated him in his bed (not that she wasn't justified in doing so!), so between that and also killing the Commodore's son I suspect he felt that there was some payback due)

    so he did it for his friend...good enough...

    however, she slapped the crap out of him in bed (when he was still sick from the stroke) but did not kill him. Jimmy killed him in the living room (at her urging, but still...).

    Also, she did not kill Jimmy...Nukky did that. And Uncle Junior knew she did not kill Jimmy and that the boy in the tub was someone else (he even hired the Pinkertons to prove it!).

    So I agree with you that he did it for the Commodore. But the reasons you give were all wrong! :)

    Yeah I misremembered who actually killed the Commodore, but as you say Gillian was behind it.

    You and I knew that Nucky killed Jimmy, but I'm not sure that Uncle Junior knew that.
