I’ve meant to watch this show for years but two things kept me from it:
- It means another hour a week that I have to devote to watching television
- I heard that it’s dark as hell
Well both those things are true and I have a lot of catching up to do if I want to get up to speed with it.
The thing is, although it’s brilliantly written, performed and shot it just makes me feel bad. I know that’s the point, but, wow it’s dark. And if something is too dark for me to watch that’s saying something.
All that being said, it easily has the best opening scene of any pilot I have ever watched. It’s embedded above.
