Any meal is classier with proper table manners.

Anybody else get the feeling that the only reason Mr. Hickey snuck on this voyage was the increased likelihood he'd get the chance to eat some dudes?

What outstanding acting this series has.

God damn. Mister Blankie did the damn thing and then promptly had his last smoke and comical fuck-you death scene (was it 40 or 50 forks)?

In a series where literally every character dies, this man clearly won the thread.

Uh, really sorry about your leg though. Super gruesome and my dude clearly handled it better that most.

The fact that Goodsir is with the cannibals along with Crozier bodes ill. I’m sorry to see this series end, but doubly so with this terrible lead in.

Wait are they are not even cooking their dead friends, looks like? Wtf is that?

I’m not sure if it’s because they don’t have the material for a fire, or at least, nothing they can burn, or if it’s because they are hungry enough that even raw flesh tastes good. Though with Hickey, it could always be a power thing, making people realize what they’re doing so they don’t have any ability to pretend.

The scene where Hickey's cannibals kidnap Crozier is amazing. This whole show is amazing. The acting is just incredible.

That power dynamic comment about Hickey is so, so good, Corb, and I think utterly spot on. Just realized they might not have wanted to show their hand vis-a-vis visibility on the tundra to the opposing crew members, who doubtless are too weak and ill to sneak up and successfully subdue all mutineers at this point, anyway.
