Loved the show. I also realized that there was not a lot of color in the show. Sad story and the ending was even sadder.

Chris Evans gave a phenomenal performance as Andrew Barber. It was the best performance of his career yet.

Angele Babin:
Chris is a man that has deep feelings he is very profound and it does reflects into his acting and the way he live his life. He is a gem. Equality is important to him.
heiji
heiji:
Questions I WOULD have asked Chris Evans:
1) Do you think that Andy Barber always had a grey moral consciousness to begin with, or his unethical behaviors were a result of his parental instinct and him wanting to protect his child no matter what.
2) Andy's family is basically broken by the end of the show, but he was still trying to mend those cracks even if it takes reconstructing his wife's life on a lie. Again, is it a father/husband thing? Or is Andy clinging to the idea of a normal family/life in an abnormal way?

I didn't read the book but I understand that the ending was changed, if Jacob died it would have had more closure (at least to me) 🤷‍♀️
Chris was great in this role btw
Sam LD
Sam LD:
I finished the show just in 1 day. I was shaking and confused while I'm watching it. I mean, the story was very sad, it made me feel like, watching this show is the worst and the best decision. Idk, maybe the story was so sad
Amy._. Mcstravick
Amy._. Mcstravick:
Honestly I loved the show! However on the last episode this is my theory I feel the mum was beyond breaking point and she obviously crashed the car on purpose due to the fact she was so torn and distraught by thinking her son did this. But truly I think the mom didn’t think they would of both survived the crash but when she realised she and her son were still alive she had then panicked and made up a cover story to tell her husband that it was an ‘accident’ so she would not be charged for trying to murder her son. Plus it kinda makes sense why she crashed the car because she had nothing to loose as she was already at breaking point thinking her son had killed Ben. Plus she probably did mean to kill her son due to the fact jacobs photo album was in the rubbish. But yeh I think the mum thought they would of both died from the crash but her plan had backfired so she made up a cover story to save her self from being charged for attempted murder.

So funny that Jaeden Martell played a young Chris Evans in “Playing it Cool.” 😊 Guess that’s what led to this role for him.

The ending kinda sucked. I loved the show. But i started getting into it more but it ended. I watched it for Chris and Jaeden. But i wish the ending was better
David Muchirahondo
David Muchirahondo:
The acting was just superb. I loved watching every episode. The directors did a mighty good job to give us an immersive experience. I how ever did not wholesomely enjoy the ending. I didn't get the sense of closure that would have cemented the show's greatness in my mind. I feel like there's a lot that was left unresolved. Mainly, of course, WHO KILLED BEN? but also what was Jacob's connection to Leonards Pats? I honestly thought that Jacob was being molested by Pats. I want to know all of this but I'm not sure I'd be willing to go through another season just to find out.

Merilyn Li
Merilyn Li:
Do y’all think Jacob did it? I think he didn’t. During the car scene, his mom was going crazy and I think he loves her enough to confess if she was about to crash the car. Instead, he “said he did it” but just to stop her from crashing
aware24
aware24:
He was able to be a good man and a good father, something his dad in jail said you could never do. But Andrew achieved that by protecting his broken family.

Chris is such a diverse and extremely talented actor. I’ve gone back and watched his body of work and all I can say is wow. I love how real and authentic he is. Much love and happiness to you sir. I enjoy watching you. 😘
Naya
Naya:
Defending Jacob has to be one of Chris's best works. He was a phenomenal actor in it obviously, but also the show was just wonderfully written and directed. I hope that the show can stretch beyond the books and delve into another season. This show is evidently about family, and it would be very interesting to see how (and if) the Barber family picks up the extremely broken pieces of their family or if it is even possible for them to regain any sense of normalcy again. Too, it would be interesting to see how Jacob reacts to the accident: whether he think his mom was trying to kill him or not, and if so, how he deals with that.

The show’s ending was blah. They should’ve stayed true to the book’s ending. Still a good show though. I watched it for Chris Evans, but everything else about it kept me hooked.

I realized the ending was for a season two opening, but it would have been better to follow the book and have Jacob die.

I actually enjoyed the last episode which really needed to be different from the book in order to maintain a twist at the end. Jacob did it. By not killing Hope we understand that his arrest meant that people are often quick to judge/ misjudge.... or to be reckless in their judgement. Great to see Mr Evans breaking away from Capt. A and engaging in deep and more meaningful themes. Looking forward to your next piece of work. Mr Evans if you are thinkung of leaving acting for a behind the camera life, dont. You are only young once and there is so much more for you to explore in terms of character and genres. Be choosy, you can now afford to be wiser in your decisions and your fans will follow your work with keen interest.

The show was great, the finale was based on real responses of an ordinary family, the perspectives of the society and even the limitations of judgments, not extraordinary but real.
