We finally got to see more of JD Hesby this week and got to hear more of his backstory, as well as that of his family. And once again, the preview hinted at even more next week, including a shift in JD’s attitude toward the workers and their living conditions.

  1. I loved the last scene – about the ‘invisible’ cost of our food, clothes, etc. Not something we like to think about! Love Tim and Felicity – two of my very favourite actors. Tim conveys JDs pain so well without words. Here’s a question – when JD walks into his office, he takes an awkward step – are we to assume he’s had a few drinks already?

  2. There is a fragile, tenuous quality to Tim’s performance here that reminds me a bit of Jonesy in Carnivale. JD Hesby seems to grappling with a lifelong sense of helplessness, trapped, knowing the wrongness and unfairness of how his family does business–as modern-day slave owners, basically–yet apparently going along with it, maybe because he felt powerless to go against the family. Watching Tim and Felicity together is powerful stuff, and it makes me hope all the more that, after season 3, Tim will continue to be part of the American Crime ensemble.

    • Being that I’m on the cutting edge of things, I’ve just started watching Carnivale! lol. It’s not the type of show I normally enjoy, yet I’m finding it strangely riveting and addictive! It’s beautifully shot.

      • Learning to love Carnivale was a process, but by the end of season 1, I was hooked. Jonesy might be my favorite of Tim’s characters (I haven’t seen them all). The entire supporting ensemble is just fantastic. I’m still not a huge fan of fantasy as a genre, but there were elements of Carnivale that I loved.

  3. Gosh Tim might have only one or 2 scenes per episodes, but each of them are amazing. It’s no wonder why they cast Tim for that role, it’s exactly what he excels at.

    I’m a little concerned for JD though. He seems to be going down a bad path, and what we learned about his past addiction wasn’t to reassure me…

    That series is kinda terrifying though… There’s something seriously wrong with this world…

    • This is far more frightening to me than most of what is classified as “horror”. What American Crime depicts is disturbing because it’s so real. People don’t want to know that this is us (which probably explains why the ratings have never been good for this series–viewers use television to escape reality).
