Bloodline - Netflix Original - Full Series - spoilers allowed

Anyone else catch this show? I really liked it and think the actor who played Danny (Ben Mendelsahn) was tremendous. Friday Night Lights guy (Kyle Chandler) is always really good and did not disappoint.

I thought there were some holes in the story (one in particular at the very end), but overall I was thoroughly impressed with the story and series. I think I read that there will be a second season and I'm looking forward to it.

It was also stunningly beautiful. Makes me want to head east for about six months or so.

I watched the first six episodes today. Really enjoying it. The first episode seemed a bit slow, but the last few minutes were worth it and got me hooked. The acting and writing are top notch.

Are we supposed to know who it was that was watching John and Kevin leave Danny's apartment in Miami?

My guess would be Danny's son.

I assumed it was the detective (Lenny Potts?).

I'd guess Danny's son too, he was wearing a Rayburn House tshirt.

Great series, I was slightly annoyed early on when they would have a crazy cliffhanger at the end of an episode, and then not touch on it the next. Eventually you see them as flash forwards/backwards and they were mostly all tied up in the last few episodes. Would have been maddening as a normal show waiting a week in between

How does the t-shirt help us think it's Danny's son though? I found that part to be what was confusing. I actually thought, intially, that it was John's son but something happened later to make me think otherwise.

When he first popped up I had no idea who he was, and it didn't resonate as a known character. When the son visits John and the end my head immediately thought of that scene again, and the tshirt as a hand me down from Dad.

I assumed it was Danny's son too. He probably knew where his Dad lived and was waiting for him to come home, plus as ireland said, he would have an old Inn shirt.

Plus, the person that saw them leave the Inn and Danny's son at the end were both wearing the same necklace.

I really enjoyed the series. The only part that bothered me was the fact that they went to Danny's apartment in Miami in broad daylight. Seemed rather stupid.

This is the bit that confirmed for me that the person that saw them coming out of the apartment was the same person that approached John at the end.

What were the holes that you noticed?

I enjoyed it a lot, but was a bit disappointed in the last few eps, when it became much more of a conventional thriller. Not sure how interested I am in a second season without the Danny character, who was fascinating. Great performance by Mendelsohn.

Like a lot of people, I found this very slow in the first half of the season but stuck it out until I got to the mostly terrific episodes 5-12. Unfortunately, while I didn't hate it, I was definitely let down by the final episode which was a bit too conventional for my tastes... at least where this show is concerned.

Not sure I need a second season.

Just finished this last night. I was thinking that this would have made a great 1 season, 13 episode show, with everything wrapped up in that last episode (by cutting the discussion with Sally and Potts and of course the kid showing up).

Knowing it was renewed, however, I was just waiting for the other shoe to drop and for something to hang us on the cliff.

Like others, I thought the first few episodes were a bit slow but overall really enjoyed it. Great characters and great acting.

I can't remember exactly (especially since it's been so long), but the drunk brother going in to town and then getting back to the car in secret. Wouldn't someone had to have given him a ride and wondered whose car it was or if he had them drop him off near and walk to the car, wonder why they were dropping him off in the middle of nowhere. Seems there were a couple of other problems like that, but I don't remember them.

I also thought the hat/shirt combo was what made me believe it was the son.

I really enjoyed this. I mean, as much as you can enjoy people doing such terrible things. :P

I thought the first episode was slow but after that it really picked up. Holy crap, John really sold the terror when his daughter was out on the boat with Danny.

Maybe the second season will be just as full of flashbacks and we'll get to see plenty more of Danny.

I thought this was a good show. Kyle Chandler really is a good actor. I got the notice that S2 was released today. Not sure I'll have a lot of time to watch anything this weekend but this is high on my list.

Fired through the first 2 episodes yesterday and it's just as grabbing. Chandler continues to mesmerize.
