Review: Bloodline Season 3 Episode 10 “Part 33”

Within this over-stuff, exposition reliant, and hardly satisfying series finale, there is a sequence between Sally, John and Kevin that really encapsulated what this series could have been. It is a powerfully treatment of the illusion families put up of love and care and the coddling we do to try align each other with our … Continue reading Review: Bloodline Season 3 Episode 10 “Part 33”

Review: Bloodline Season 3 Episode 9 “Part 32”

I appreciate the writers' ambition in attempting to resolve this series in an interesting way but this was just so incredibly pointless, self-indulgent and ludicrous that for me it just became background noise. Portraying John's paranoia, his relationship with his brother and his position within the family hierarchy, this episode relied heavily on exposition and … Continue reading Review: Bloodline Season 3 Episode 9 “Part 32”

Review: Bloodline Season 3 Episode 8 “Part 31”

Just as John Rayburn is, 'Bloodline' is spiralling out of control. I really see very little cohesion throughout this episode as it stacks contrived circumstances upon poor, underdeveloped storylines and a random death that is slightly degrading to the audience. The writers seem to have very little plans for what the overall course of this … Continue reading Review: Bloodline Season 3 Episode 8 “Part 31”

Review: Bloodline Season 3 Episode 7 “Part 30”

Loyalty to ones' family has always been of incredible significance to the 'Bloodline' brand, a concept repetitively discussed throughout the series as justification for actions. A viewer may even begin to believe such reasoning, with┬ásuch superb performances as the show often presents. However, this episode really went further than others in the sense that it … Continue reading Review: Bloodline Season 3 Episode 7 “Part 30”

Review: Bloodline Season 3 Episode 6 “Part 29”

Despite excellently direct court-room sequences and the common tone of desperation and labour scattered through the show's many disjointed stories, the lack of urgency is significantly hurting this season. While it began with an excellent punch of tension, suspense and paranoia, there is noting keeping the stakes high. We are constantly showcased gloomy, morally ambiguous … Continue reading Review: Bloodline Season 3 Episode 6 “Part 29”

Review: Bloodline Season 3 Episode 5 “Part 28”

There is a tone of unwilling acceptance set throughout this episode that is quickly disrupted by Kevin's actions and the pressure for him to 'behave' for Roy. It is repetitive and does at times feel contrived in pushing Kevin down a specific path that will ultimately hurt him, as the ending suggests, but at least … Continue reading Review: Bloodline Season 3 Episode 5 “Part 28”
