Wow. The real Elizabeth Holmes must have been amazingly charismatic to pull off some of the stuff she did.

Damn, this is such a great show. Strong character actors bringing their A-game.

I like learning about scams and fraud, so the deep dive into the story keeps getting more interesting.

Episode 4 is so good. Alan Ruck is a goddamn National treasure.

Ep 5 is pretty fucked up.

i'm really enjoying this show. Seyfried does a great job and Naveen continues to keep up with her pretty well! I'm sure it's a limited series but I won't be upset with a second season if it came to pass.

Also really love the Megamind from Macy

Watching Seyfried sitting in a prison cell for a decade isn't exactly going to be a lot of fun.

This show is gooood. Reminds me of American Crime Story season 1 and 2 quality.

Adding more strong character actors each episode.

I can't believe that someone saw the dailies of Macy wearing a Kurtwood Smith prosthetic forehead being subpoenaed by the ACTUAL Kurtwood Smith and still decided it was a good idea to go forward.
Still loving the show though.

Episode 7 is great. Laurie Metcalf is one of the standouts in the show for me and she isn’t even in it that much.

This show keeps getting better and better. You can see the walls closing in on Theranos - start sweating!

Last week's episode seriously creeped me out with the masks at the Birthday party and then went a whole new level above it at her house after the party. Felt like it was a real-life Jib-Jab.

Seyfried is next-level good with the dead eye stuff looking at the camera. It's amazing what the real Holmes got away with being cute and bloned.

Holy shit, they really make Holmes out to be a sociopath. Seyfried does an excellent job of it.

I agree I feel this could easily have been ten episodes and the last episode seemed rushed to me like the pacing was too fast from the inevitable fall to the end credits. It's rare to see a show that doesn't puff itself to more eps for more episodes sake but I wanted just a bit more.

Amanda really did well with this role, hope to see her continue to do well.

I am now watching the ABC 20/20 Dropout episode, to see what the real people look like. Of course, I already know what Elizabeth Holmes looks like, but was curious about the other people haha

Check out "The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley" too if you haven't already (HBO)

Great series, excellent cast, wish there were more episodes as well.

After watching The Inventor and then The Dropout, I rewatched The Inventor. It was interesting seeing the real people telling their sides: Tyler Schultz, John Carreyrou, Erika Cheung.

I watched the finale of this right after the finale for Super Pumped and it cracked me up how the final scenes to both were so similar.

Seyfried was great.

I watched the Inventor over the weekend. Wow, Amanda really nailed a lot of the mannerisms. Also, I can't believe how hard Holmes doubled down on her claims after being exposed as a fraud and going on the panel and flat out lying that things worked and the tests were done in-house on Edisons etc. I had wondered watching the show what was going on in her mind when it hit the fan for her but she was just delusional. I'm a bit surprised there are no wrongful death suits against her company and or the widow of the scientist that killed himself didn't seem to sue either. I guess the well ran dry when they went out of business but that is some messed up stuff...

I read you must serve a minimum 85% for Federal prison which makes it 9.5 years. There will be appeals and she has money or at least her husband's family does(they were living on an estate worth $135 million) so I'm sure her lawyers will be looking for any technicality to exploit and take all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary. She's currently scheduled to surrender to custody on April 27, 2023.
