Critic reviews for Trylon and Perisphere
The writers seem to be building towards a big new direction on a show that needed to replace its entire foundation.
By the end of the second episode, there was a conspiracy firmly in place and people other than Carrie were starting to look responsible for her enormous screwup. If that's the direction they're going with... we're afraid we're going to have to bow out.
Carrie is as messed up as ever, and so is pretty much everyone else around her. We wouldn't have it any other way.
What would have been a one-sided affair of the two parts of Carrie's life is now made whole after the end of episode 2.
The problem, as revealed in "Trylon And Perisphere," is that the show has no idea what it's doing with Carrie, a character it wants to make its emotional center.
