Boodline

Dear Bloodline,

What a great concept for a show.  A well respected family in the community who have a few really ugly secrets.  Everything was going great until you found out the third season was going to be the end of it all.  Honestly, I wish you had pulled a Deadwood and just gotten cut-off with no attempt at closure.

Season three had so much promise.  We would figure out how the writers were going to wrap up the story and put everything to bed.  And then came along episodes 9 and 10.  I was so confused.  There was no attempt to help the viewer understand what the heck was going on.  In fact, I watched episode 9 twice and was only more confused.

I think my biggest complaint about modern TV shows is the idea that the viewer is supposed to know what the characters are thinking.  I invested quite a bit of time in this show and it seems like you guys just gave up.  Breaking Bad.  Now that was how you end a series.  The Sopranos.  Yes.  But this Bloodline; You're not a bad show, but you did a bad ending.

Disgusted,

JFB

Just watched episode 9 last night and was equally confused. Will watch the final episode tonight. Lots of loose ends to tie up, that's for damn sure
