The last few scenes of that episode drew a tear from both me and my wife. This has, again, become the best thing currently on TV in my book. Oh, wait, tied with Better Call Saul.

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

I finally binged this whole season and I was not disappointed. The death of Nina was a bit of a shock as well as the clearing of the board they did for the end of the season.

Apparently they have renewed this for a 5th and 6th season but will definitely end it after 6. That may be 1 season too many but we'll see. Of course it will be one season a year so the end will be 2018.

CORP POR!

Yeah, so this finally ended and I finally watched the last season. It could easily have been the best season yet because of the setup. They'd shifted the timeline forward and the whole story revolved around the arms summit in 1987 that I remember as a kid. And yet...

The whole season was filled with Mopey Phillip and Crazy Robo Terminator Elizabeth. Even with all that, they setup what could have been a very intricate, cool ending. Instead, we got a conversation in a garage and thirty minutes of mopey everyone montage with sad music and no dialogue and shit just ENDED. No explanation of the historical context, no explanation of what happened to Elizabeth and Phillip, or the kids or fucking anything. It was a very disappointing ending.

Disagree, but I will concede its a matter of personal taste. I thought the finale was one of the best ones ever done for a long-serial drama.
