    I don't think there's a lot of love for this series, but it's getting better. It's definitely settled into full-on "creepy" mode, but I'm intrigued by all of the characters.

    I still think it's a shame that Jack was killed off, but if he stays around to haunt the cop, that's ok.

    Does anyone know if Markie dug up Jack, or did Danny's handler dig up Jack? I thought at first it was Markie, but later the cop has some nasty words for the handler. Only after he says something to her does the handler whisper back, "windsong", so we know she's the one who gave that to Danny, which makes me wonder why she' protecting Danny ...

    I was wondering if anyone else was watching this. It sort of reminds me of a British Twin Peaks. Definitely dark and creepy, the Windsong scenes were nightmarish.

    Jack was an interesting character, it's too bad the actor couldn't maintain his accent.

    Jack was (is) played by Tom Hardy, born in London, England

    Definitely a creepy show - not one that I have to watch each Sunday. Usually get around to it towards the end of the week when I've exhausted my other options.

    Me too. I only watched the most recent two episodes last night, which is why I started a post Thursday afternoon. :)

    I figured he was English doing a creepy version of American hillbilly.

    The golf instructor had a few slips too. It's not a big deal, just something I noticed.

    As to the question of Jacks body, I just don't see "the gloved one" doing the work, although clearly he does have "stamina" (ewww). I didn't understand how he knew about his father getting released, maybe it was a joint effort with the handler?

    However, if the golf instructor is supposed to be an American living in Meadowloands for a while, he most likely was in Great Britain when he entered into protective custody, so he may "naturally" have picked up a bit of a British accent while living there. (For real life, consider Gillian Anderson. She's lived in England for several years and has a slight British accent on certain words.)
