I also think they might put it on Saturdays. CBS did a similar thing back in 2009 with the limited series Harper's Island. The show was put on Thursdays, but it got moved to Saturdays because of low live viewer ratings during the first few episodes.

I liked episode 2 of Gracepoint. The pacing of the story fits with the story and I'm already suspecting a couple of people after the episode and I'm curious about Carver's past.

Tonight is episode 4 of 10


Even though this is a serialized show, I'm not going to waste time doing individual episode threads anymore for shows that aren't getting any activity. Last week no one commented & the previous threads were pretty dead. So enjoy for anyone left watching.

For the record, I have watched every episode so far, but I had a strong feeling this show was going to bomb, especially on Thursday nights and facing NFL. NFL is probably the main reason why no one is watching.

Does Fox do on demand? I have DirecTV and Fox programming isn't available to download.

With a tightly serialized program like this, that's about the only way the can pick up new viewers.

Re: Gracepoint (FOX) -- Series Thread

I get why they make like everyone seem like they are a suspect, but it's mildly obnoxious. Like when the cop's kid when to the guy's shop and then he closes the door all creepy. Like, really? I think the show is well done, but I have no doubts this won't be back. Way too serialized. This should've been a summer show on Fox.

I do wonder if it would have worked better airing in the summer. As a limited series, I think it is a decent show.

Re: Gracepoint (FOX) -- Series Thread

^ Agreed. Limited series runs seem to just work better in the summer months. I haven't watched this week's episode yet, but for what it's worth, I am enjoying the show 3 episodes in.

Early word is that the action doesn't start to heat up until episode 7.

Re: Gracepoint (FOX) -- Series Thread

Is it still pretty close to the British original?

I just caught up on this show thus week. Didn't see Broadchurch, so this is all new to me.

So far, so good.

I haven't the original. I've read a few articles that say that it does follow the orignal closely, but the American producers/writers decided to change the killer.

Money. Buying the rights to remake a show is much cheaper than buying the rights to the finished product. And if the network makes it in-house, then they stand to make tons of money off foreign sales, off-network syndication, ads for Fox\Hulu streaming, licensing to Netflix or Amazon, home video sales, OnDemand ads\licensing, merchandising, spin-offs and more.

NBC could have just aired the original British version of The Office. But, for them, the difference between airing the original and making their own was, quite literally, a billion dollars.

It's still running pretty close with a few tweaks here and there.

My wife and I caught up with the first half of the season last night. I like it so far.
Never seen Broadchurch either.

Re: Gracepoint (FOX) -- Series Thread

I really feel bad for people who are watching this version first instead of BROADCHURCH, which was SO much better acted and engaging. Even Tennant is doing a worse job and he's playing the same bloody character (albeit with a different name).

Watching GRACEPOINT has been like watching Gus Van Sant's PSYCHO in stead of the one by Hitchcock...that's the best comparison I can make.

So are you saying I can watch the first half of Gracepoint, then jump to Broadchurch for the rest of the series? ;-)

More or less...seriously. Only a few minor plot points have been changed so far.

Well the remake changes course and becomes separate from the original around episode 7 or 8.

Re: Gracepoint (FOX) -- Series Thread

What episode are we up to? I've been watching but lost track. I'm certainly interested in seeing how things might change. My main gripe with the show (including when it was Broadchurch) is that there are no real clues as to the killer's identity. They present false clues with nearly every character that they introduce so, in the end, you're just guessing at who it might be. There's no real way to deduce the killer.

For what's it's worth I have several friends who have watched Broadchurch who are loving Gracepoint. They love what Tennant is doing in comparison with the original, as well as enjoying the story with the tweaks.

In my own poll I was advised to finish Gracepoint, then watch Broadchurch, but YMMV.

Re: Gracepoint (FOX) -- Series Thread

I'm enjoying it, but it really takes me out of the drama when a scene ends, we to go commerical, and its the Fox ad for "Who Killed Danny!!!" Go to Fox.com to Vote on who YOU think is the killler!!!!

Its like every character is on a cereal box top and you tear them off and mail them in to vote. It removes what weight there is to the subject matter.

But then thats Fox. After this I will seek out Broadchurch.

Re: Gracepoint (FOX) -- Series Thread

Just finished watching last night's ep... and now we get a 2-week break until the show resumes with Episode 9.

Things are getting heated as they start closing in on the killer... and I still have no clue who it really is.

After this, I will watch Broadchurch.

I agree those commercials are annoying. Years ago on TV, when networks that did the "Who killed or who shot?" promos or commercials for shows , they didn't hit you over the head too much. These days with the Internet and social media, that stuff has become annoying.

Re: Gracepoint (FOX) -- Series Thread

Ellie asking Susan "how did you not know?" pretty much confirms that Ellie's husband is the killer.

Broadchurch will be available on Netflix on December 12.
