I’ve checked out the TV shows on Sundance for a few years, and I must say Sundance excels at both film and TV shows. The cast is strong and the story is darkly humorous. Like the 1980’s Texas backdrop, this show has an slow, easy pace, allowing the story to unfold comfortably without feeling rushed. It is worth a watch.
