Loved the show. I also realized that there was not a lot of color in the show. Sad story and the ending was even sadder.
It's me!

I signed up for Appletv+ just for Defending Jacob, and it was worth it!

Chris is a man that has deep feelings he is very profound and it does reflects into his acting and the way he live his life. He is a gem. Equality is important to him.
heiji
heiji:
Questions I WOULD have asked Chris Evans:
1) Do you think that Andy Barber always had a grey moral consciousness to begin with, or his unethical behaviors were a result of his parental instinct and him wanting to protect his child no matter what.
2) Andy's family is basically broken by the end of the show, but he was still trying to mend those cracks even if it takes reconstructing his wife's life on a lie. Again, is it a father/husband thing? Or is Andy clinging to the idea of a normal family/life in an abnormal way?

So funny that Jaeden Martell played a young Chris Evans in “Playing it Cool.” 😊 Guess that’s what led to this role for him.

I didn't read the book but I understand that the ending was changed, if Jacob died it would have had more closure (at least to me) 🤷‍♀️
Chris was great in this role btw

I finished the show just in 1 day. I was shaking and confused while I'm watching it. I mean, the story was very sad, it made me feel like, watching this show is the worst and the best decision. Idk, maybe the story was so sad
Amy._. Mcstravick
Amy._. Mcstravick:
Honestly I loved the show! However on the last episode this is my theory I feel the mum was beyond breaking point and she obviously crashed the car on purpose due to the fact she was so torn and distraught by thinking her son did this. But truly I think the mom didn’t think they would of both survived the crash but when she realised she and her son were still alive she had then panicked and made up a cover story to tell her husband that it was an ‘accident’ so she would not be charged for trying to murder her son. Plus it kinda makes sense why she crashed the car because she had nothing to loose as she was already at breaking point thinking her son had killed Ben. Plus she probably did mean to kill her son due to the fact jacobs photo album was in the rubbish. But yeh I think the mum thought they would of both died from the crash but her plan had backfired so she made up a cover story to save her self from being charged for attempted murder.

I realized the ending was for a season two opening, but it would have been better to follow the book and have Jacob die.

Chris was so amazing like Andy, he deserves full atention in awards season !!!
Naya
Naya:
Defending Jacob has to be one of Chris's best works. He was a phenomenal actor in it obviously, but also the show was just wonderfully written and directed. I hope that the show can stretch beyond the books and delve into another season. This show is evidently about family, and it would be very interesting to see how (and if) the Barber family picks up the extremely broken pieces of their family or if it is even possible for them to regain any sense of normalcy again. Too, it would be interesting to see how Jacob reacts to the accident: whether he think his mom was trying to kill him or not, and if so, how he deals with that.

Merilyn Li
Merilyn Li:
Do y’all think Jacob did it? I think he didn’t. During the car scene, his mom was going crazy and I think he loves her enough to confess if she was about to crash the car. Instead, he “said he did it” but just to stop her from crashing

He was able to be a good man and a good father, something his dad in jail said you could never do. But Andrew achieved that by protecting his broken family.
Kouji R
Kouji R:
The one question in my head while watching this series was "Did he do it?". Unfortunately the answer is never answered. It is implied in the book since there is evidence for the second murder, but since Hope doesn't get murdered in the series, we never really get a direct answer. The question will haunt me for the rest of my life lol.

"You can create those burdens if you want to, but it has really nothing to do with your work" - cheers Chris I'll be stealing that bit of wisdom.

Marie Grimes
Marie Grimes:
Fantastic series. The acting was superb from beginning to end. Bravo to all of the actors, Director, writers and the entire crew. I love Chris Evans and Michelle Dockery in other roles so expected them to be great and they didn’t disappoint. Jaeden Martell played Jacob perfectly as a typical teenager who doesn’t want to tell his parents anything and does some really stupid stuff even knowing how serious the consequences could be. 😬 The ending was a bit disappointing by not definitely saying whether Jacob killed Ben but I think that’s on purpose to leave it open for people to discuss and form their own opinions. I personally don’t think he did it. Jacob did so much stuff to cause the finger to be pointed at him and I think if he had done it he would have been trying to blame someone else. Unless, he’s a psychopath like his mother started to believe. 😏
