Starts tomorrow.

New credits sequence on-line now - much better than last year's. I like the song.

Justin Theroux -- Kevin Garvey
Amy Brenneman -- Laurie Garvey
Christopher Eccleston -- Matt Jamison
Margaret Qualley -- Jill Garvey
Chris Zylka -- Tom Garvey
Carrie Coon -- Nora Durst
Liv Tyler -- Meg Abbott
Ann Dowd -- Patti Levin
Janel Moloney -- Mary Jamison
Regina King -- Erika Murphy
Kevin Carroll -- John Murphy
Jovan Adepo -- Michael Murphy

Out from 1's Main Cast - Aimee, Lucy, Dean, Adam, Scott, Christine
Promoted up from Recurring - Moloney as Mary.
New - The Murphy family.

The billing sequence switched a little - was Meg/Tom/Jill/Nora in slots 4/5/6/7 last time, but now it's Jill/Tom/Nora/Meg...
I like that Ann Dowd is still a regular.

I thought the visuals for the credit sequence were lame last season but I did like the music better than this new song. Surprised to see Amy Brenneman on your cast list, as I have not noticed her in any of the previews for the new season.

WTF was up with that opening scene? I paused the show and looked up Sepinwall's review to see if I wanted to continue watching the episode.

Actually enjoyed the rest of the episode. The Murphy family was interesting. I liked the ending. Poor Darius McCrary.

Nora didn't admit that Matt helped them get the home (maybe she's hiding something?), so I found it odd that Kevin and company showed up there for seemingly no good reason.

I didn't expect Mary to still be alive.

Yeah that was up there on the f**** up scale. I didn't know what to make of that.

Interesting 'reboot' in a way. Murphy family was interesting and now I want to know more.

After reading the recap for the episode at Vulture, I found this where they talk about that bizarre opening scene....

Interesting. So hopefully we will be able to figure out what the opening scene meant. Cool.

Haven't read that yet - or this, http://www.hitfix.com/whats-alan-watchi ... angers-gag from Sepinwall (bits of the Damon interview we shouldn't have seen until after watching the premiere), but I didn't think the opening scenes were THAT oblique... It's background info for Jarden. We see the tremors for the first time, a couple tragedies, and a couple of 'miraculous' saves from near-death. Made enough sense to me.

I thought it was a really interesting and bold choice to keep us from seeing anybody we knew until 40 or so minutes in.

Seemed John was very cruel to Isaac... Even if Isaac IS a fraud (looks like his reading was pretty on point, though), burning down his house like that... Not very nice.

I wanna know more about the lady in the wedding dress watering her lawn...


Edit, after reading the Vulture - I like that. 'Except this time, the baby makes it.'
- after reading Sepinwall's review - I didn't notice that the rescuer looks like Nora, but that makes sense, given Nora's recent 'adoption' via baby-on-the-doorstep...

Yeah that was interesting. Maybe husband or fiancee was AWAY during the event and he is now gone.

I also was wondering if baby had connection to Nora's new 'adopted' baby.

Discussed 1-4 some in the HBO thread, and Krystal asked if anybody was watching in the Watching...

Just a reminder... This does have its own thread...

#5... Poor Matt. His life is not fun.
