Snowfall ended perfectly. That’s how a lotta our fathers and uncles crashed out in the 80s early 90s. Damson Idris deserves Emmy award btw his performance throughout the show was special.

Humorously, some were a bit sterner than others in their demands. The fans definitely came thru and advocated for Damson!

Additionally, it was noted that Damson “played like three people” in the finale: “A desperate man with nothing, then a villain, then a washed-up drunk.”
Damson Idris played like 3 people in that last episode. A desperate man with nothing, then a villain, then a washed up drunk. He deserve an Oscar for his acting in Snowfall.
