I'll never be over Quentin but this is the only show I actually look forward to coming on so I'll probably angry watch
I kind of don't care anymore? I like the books more and the show has been gradually losing me.
I love this show so much. Cant wait for next season. People are like "im not going to watch because of what they did to Q" but the actor wanted to leave, what could they have done? And honestly, the rest of the cast is so good we wont even miss him probably.

They could have written his exit in a way that didn't have a depressed, suicidal character *saving the day* by choosing to commit suicide, imo.
I didn’t see it as suicide but a heroic sacrifice but to each their own.
In the Underworld, Quentin literally asks Penny if his "sacrifice" just a way to finally excuse killing himself. John McNamara, one of the writers, said in response to the question of whether or not Q commit suicide, that a psychiatrist once told him, "the subconscious always gets what it wants, and the conscious mind often never knows." You can choose to see a "heroic sacrifice" if you want, but there's literally context from the show and comments from the writers to indicate they intended otherwise.
I won't lie and say the trailer isn't tempting, but I'm out. Q wasn't my favorite character, and it's not so much that they wrote him out, but the way they utterly shit the bed in doing so turned me off of this show completely.
I....can't not watch season 5. I love Eliot, Margo, Penny, and Julia too much not to.

Also, this is the *only* show that pulls off random musical numbers. Ryan Murphy needs to take note.
i'm definitely boycotting. what they did to Quentin was beyond shitty and made it so Eliot's character development always revolves around being an mourning, angsty queer dude. the show did all the characters so dirty
