Martha Trydahl Martha Trydahl TV Review: HBO’s “Sharp Objects” is Slowing Down

HBO’s Sunday night star, Sharp Objects, takes place in Wind Gap, Missouri, which is within “spittin’ distance to Tennessee.” The show’s location is another character in the show.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m still catching my breath from last week’s battle scene. Last Sunday’s “Beyond the Wall” episode was spellbinding with it’s prolonged, tension-filled battle between a handful of the good guys and the mega-horde of slow-moving night walkers. Although we knew Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) was on her way with […]
