Here is a show with great writing and good, gritty cinematography, along with a lack of direction and diversity. There’s a sameness to each scene, making it hard to distinguish between scenes and characters or to discern their moods. There is a shortage of acting talent, in my opinion; I could not engage with any of the characters, and I couldn’t really figure out which characters were supposed to be bad or good. This may have been intentional on the writers’ part, due to the concept of the show, but I would have preferred more distinction.
All that said, there is enough compelling content to make this worth checking out. I look forward to hearing your impression of the show.
