I also watched Project Almanac for the same reason as Freeza. And do concur that the chick was hot.

Also IN on this. Gonna watch the pilot today.

So really enjoyed that pilot. Has the making of a good show.

Naz made a lot of dumb mistakes that are unrealistic in real life.

Spoiler:
Brb beta virgin so change my whole night for this shady girl. (this one is realistic Laughing  )
Brb leave her alone in my car while I buy her shit even though I just met her.
Brb take a pill while being peer pressured by this shady girl without even asking what it is.
Brb go to her place and drink (even though I don't ever drink).
Brb she's crazy and playing with a knife and is about to seriously hurt herself.
Brb snort coke because she offers.
Brb get pressured to do the same dumb shit with the knife that she did.
Brb do it to her and actually stab her.
Brb she's bleeding but let's forget about the fact that I just stabbed her and lets start making out.
Brb let's have sex with this crazy bitch even though she's seriously *bleep* bleeding and is crazy.

After he woke up and found her dead his stupidity can be explained by the panic of the situation so no qualms after that.

Also he didn't seem like a *bleep* dumbass retard, he was a college student who should really have enough knowledge of criminal law to ask for a phone call and call a lawyer ASAP and not talk to anyone. But whatever he was in shock so still understandable.

None of them were dumb mistakes. From his point of view, he did what most irrational introverts would do, which he was. He was pretty much seduced by her mysterious persona. From his background and the way he was brought up. He just wanted to 'live a little'.

I don't think they were that unrealistic. I'd suck a fart out of that girl's unwashed ear.

Cmon, prior to finding the girl dead his decisions were totally dumb and unrealistic. Nobody would do all of those things.

After him waking up, I have no qualms, because the shock of the situation and still being under the influence explains his decisions.

Anyways, show is very suspenseful and the pacing and score fits it beautifully. Really like it and I have plenty of questions.

The guy at the gas station. The motorcycle guy. The black dude that gave him the death stare when his buddy called him towelhead(?), his friend later claimed at the station that he was alone so trying to hide the fact that this death glare guy was there. Plenty questions about the girl who clearly seemed suicidal or scared of something.

Yup. I hope they can do an anthology so something like this every season.

Think they wanted to re-create something like TD season 1.

I hope not. A new story every season is a tough task. Evidenced by the debacle of TD. If Night Of decide to go the same route of TD then I can see it becoming another tedious pretentious and extremely dry tv show just like its predecessor. Fargo was a success mainly cos of sarcastic black humor approach they took. Also the source material written by the Coens were so good. You could just feel the world and the characters they created in the film had so much more to offer in terms of new storylines.

Anyway watched the 2nd episode. Was decent. Tight flawless screenplay like the 1st one. Nothing really happened tho as far as the story is concerned. Felt as if they were setting the stage for grander things to occur in the future episodes which is fine. Acting once again was really beautiful from everyone.

I don't know who the director is but this show really has phenomenal directing and cinematography. Some of the scenes were really well shot. Specially the scene of Naz going to the prison.

Really liked the 2nd episode despite not much happening. The level of realism is great to see. Thought his parents were amazing.

Tom yates though Laughing Thought it was quite weird of him to deny that was Andrea and then say it was her. Not saying he is a suspect because I doubt it but that was definitely weird.

I don't think Box is a bad guy in this. He doesn't think Naz did it either but he has to do his job and all the evidence is pointing towards Naz. He is desperate to find the motive which he doesn't understand.

Unfortunately the way this seems to be going. I don't think Naz will have a happy ending. I think he will be charged and sentenced. They might show us what really happened at some point but I just can't see him getting out of this with the way this show is going. Too much realism for a happy ending.

Felt the same way near the end of that episode

That Box fellow looked like very similar to Healy from Orange is the New Black. I mean their characters. Both have straight innocent faces. Both are extremely helping and do things with good intentions. But if shit starts to go wrong their dark sides will be extremely dark. I can see a similar character arc to the guy.

I hope this doesnt become just another prison drama though eventhough its one of my most favorite genres, lately I have been seeing that shit a lot even to the extent slowly its becoming an overkill of sorts.

Anyway agree with both of you that its chartering a grim and depression laden path.

Prison will play a part but it's not a prison drama. We'll most likely see how Naz will be treated by the other inmates once they find out that an 'arab' killed a 'white girl'.

Hope we see more of hightower lol.

Don't think that Box character is nice at all. Seems like a straight c'unt. Giving him that Harvard shirt on to get him beaten was a really unethical move and we'll probably see him get abused because of it. I could see him getting killed in prison and then they find the real killer. Maybe that's too dramatic though.

I didn't understand why wearing the harvard shirt made him an instant target. Read few posts saying that too. Is it because of the uni lol?


Box has done a lot of *bleep* things and probably is being showed as a bad cop manipulator but I don't think he wants to put the blame on Naz on purpose. The title subtle beast was apt.

Probably because Harvard is the most well know Unit in the world, which means privelege and being born with a silver spoon. That's not something people from poor neighborhoods value too much.

Wish this was a netflix show. Just watched all the eps so far. As always with these sorts of shows I'll notice a fairly 'big' actor/actress that seemingly has a minor role which means they'll obviously have a bigger impact somewhere down the line. If I had to guess right now I'd say the girl's step father had something to do with it, I'd say it'll probably turn out that he's racist and killed her in a fit of rage after going to her place and seeing she was with an 'arab' hmm although that begs the question why he wouldn't have killed Nasir, maybe he started with her and then calmed down halfway through and left. IDK. At least the 'who did it' angle isn't the only thing this has going for it so I won't be disappointed if it's something fairly predictable like that.

Can't see it being Tom yates. But he did look fishy. There is something off about the case from minute 1 tbh.

No one seems to have a motive. Whatever happened didn't have anything to do with Naz and he was just at the wrong place imo.

Read a theory that Andrea staged everything herself and placed someone else's body there. That's why her stepdad couldn't recognise her. Too far fetched but interesting.

Not sure if murder/mystery is actually the main point. What I've noticed is how they are trying hard to make this as realistic as possible with everyone's acting and reactions etc.


Sometimes it's so obvious Nas(Riz Ahmed) is from London lol. It's hard to pull an American accent with dat london tone.

He's a fairly big actor, had some decent roles in House of Cards and Boardwalk so I can't see him just appearing for the couple of scenes he was in as her father tbh

Just read some theory that Stone did it because of her cat being familiar with him and the fact 'he's allergic'  to them which could be aggravating his feet which they focus on so much, I guess he could have met her since she supposedly had a lot of history with the police since her step dad said he isn't dealing with it again or w/e hmm also they kept emphasizing how he was in the right place at the right time when he decided to take on Naz' case hmm I thought it was ridiculous at first but now I'm typing it out I could see it hmm Maybe she seduced him too hmm and he became obsessed with her/it was a crime of passion hmm

anyway I'm down for the ride, love the directing and suspense, seems really dark, the True Detective season 2 we deserved Molenation

and yeah I agree, I wouldn't be shocked if we never find out what actually happened. It seems like they're trying to realistically depict how something like this affects the lives of everyone involved and would play out.

Stones has the nice guy vibe coming from him though lol. Think he will continue helping Naz. Or he will try to blackmail his family into letting him be back on the case or else he would sue Salim for that taxi thing.

I think the cat incident will actually make Stones realise that the back door was open that night and can't be locked.

Speaking of which, the cat being in shelter amongst dogs was an unreal symbolism of Naz being in prison. Even the 10 days left to gas thing. I didn't put that together till i read it but that was clever.

Box looking at those pics of Nasir 99% knew he didn't do it but he is too logical to get his feeling come over evidence.

If it really is Stones then it's going to be that twist from Heavy Rain Laughing

That guy in Prison trying to help Nasir (read he is Omar from The Wire). No idea what his motives are.

Show is filled with amazing actors even the lesser known ones.

All actors in this show are well-known character actors tbh. Most HBO shows are at this point. Omar and Bodie from the Wire Proud It's good to do that which keeps us guessing.

Man this show's suspense is so beautiful.

The symbolism with the cat going into the pound and Naz Proud

The female lawyer obviously has a different angle, probably the scope of this case being so huge she wants that fame. Kicking Stone to the curb like that damn.

Wonder what Omar wants with Naz. but I love the realism of the prison scene, damn. I would be scared shitless if it was me.
