    BTW, I just read this and it blew my mind. Russia's illegals program was still operating in 2010.

    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    Irish posted that on the last page.

    But it bears repeating.

    I know they have to (and should) end on a gloomy, forboding note, especially this being a finale. But I really wish after Paige and Philip left that house for a cutaway scene of Stan probably congratulating his son, all beaming and gleeful.

    The space between Paige and Stan's son on the couch when the adults walk in = amazement.

    So long, Dylan Baker. You were such a strong surrogate for a questioning Philip, stigmata wounds and all.

    I almost thought the show might consider something happening to Henry, but the Paige scenario should prove equally tempting. First she tells pastor Tim, and next her boyfriend...?

    Saw the very first episode. Promising.

    Matthew Rhys looks like a younger version of bad guy actor Ed O'Ross (Red Heat etc...)

    I tried watching this (first 5-6 episodes) and thought it was terrible, near CSI level stuff. Can't believe it got so much praise.

    I gave it up after Season 2. It's just... boring, I guess.
