Not sure what the hell you're talking about but I hope this is a euphemism that means what I think it means and I intend to use it as such.

Only means Terry has lowered his standards. Precipitously.

Seeing some neg reviews about the finale, which is a bit surprising, I thought it went to its logical conclusion. Loved the series. One of the very few shows I've seen recently which rewards multiple viewings. Like a good novel does.

Pretty much all of the negative reviews I saw were from people who expected every little thing to be wrapped up in a bow.  They didn't like the small handful of loose ends, and they also expected a major, last minute plot twist.  I think the big networks have trained many people to expect a very certain, cookie-cutter format with cop shows...and I think the big star power of the show brought in a lot of those "mainstream" viewers. 

Anyhow, enough of my snobby metacriticism.  I thought the finale (and the series as a whole) was fantastic.  I'm pumped for next season.  Assuming it gets officially picked up, which I'm sure it will, the creator has given a little teaser about next year's plot.  He said it will be about, “hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.”  I'm not quite sure what the hell that means, but I'm glad they're already working on it.

I, too, thought it was a stellar use of the medium. 8 hours of drama allowed for some deep character development, some high tension action, and enough metaphysical bs to keep the blogosphere busy deciphering for months to come. And, honestly, the two stars carrying this thing both put in outstanding performances throughout. 

I will probably watch the whole thing again in a few months to pick up all that I missed the first time through.

Great show, and cool idea for a series. Season 2 has a lot to live up to if they want to compete with Woody and Wooderson.

At a certain point in the series I kinda stopped worrying about the confusing mass of tiny details and disparate threads. I'm not sure if the intention was ever for the audience to keep it all straight, or if it was just to give the impression of a very complex, extended episode. I certainly enjoyed the show for what it was -- as much as everyone had their theories about this reveal or that twist, in the end the series was about the two of them, and it always had been.

Episode 4 tracking shot was one of the best things I have seen in a while.

it was epic, for sure. The suspense of the chase through the Carcosa labyrinth was beautifully shot, as well.
