    Kate Siegel and Zach Gilford can literally have a movie where they talk for two hours straight and I would be engrossed from start to finish.

    We finally started Midnight Mass and honestly the most relatable thing about Zach Gilford’s character so far is the Dana Scully poster in his teenage bedroom.

    The "What happens after you die?" monologue given by Zach Gilford in #MidnightMass is what I'd give to religious people trying not to offend them. It's poetic yet deeply rooted in realism. For me, that entire scene was the highlight of the series.

    The entire ensemble of Midnight Mass has just honestly been ridiculous outstanding 🔥🔥, but it's especially so good to finally see Zach Gilford in another breakthrough role like this. So glad Mike Flanagan already has him lined up for his next series with The Midnight Club.
