    It's an OK show. I'm just not really getting into it though. Mind you, I think it could be just the 'watching TV in the middle of summer' thing that means I'm not really concentrating on it.

    Well, I've seen all 6 episodes to date, and I must say that so far it is one of my favourite new shows this year.

    While it is distinctly different to Breaking Bad, on some level Animal Kingdom appeals to me in a similar way.

    Ellen Barkin is excellent as Smurf, and I really love that they have located it in a place that the storylines involve many Mexican/Latino characters. I generally like shows with this combination of characters, e.g. BB/BCS, The Bridge US, Jane the Virgin, OITNB etc., etc.

    hummm, about 4 episodes in and it's missing something for me, feels a bit toothless though I'll probably stick with it til the end while I wait for some other shows to wrap up. Has a Game of Silence feel which I was expecting big things from but gave up 5 episodes in.

    It's very weird the way the granny is always flirting with her sons & grandson.

    You never have a penny lads- here's an idea getting a bleedin job, especially the lad with the kid. SOA never seemed to have a penny either, just goes to show, crime doesn't pay!

    You know you hit a nail there with the SOA angle. I hadn't quite seen it before but I knew there was something off about the show for me too and it's pretty much what you've said. Like SOA, kind of silly convoluted setups that just work because we're in a scripted world. Nobody has any money but they all have decent gear anyway. I'm not up to date because of the Olympics but the naval base cash heist was the same kind of BS that SOA would pull where it worked because everyone went along for the ride. The setup for the cash heist wasn't veyr concrete. The naval guy is going to end up on the wrong side of Military police anyway. I'd rather end up there for a genuine mistake and where he could at least say he was set up rather than just completely breaking bad.

    I'm sticking with the show to see how it ends but it's not doing heaps for me and isn't even as entertaining as SOA.

    I've finished seaaon 1 and it has a few moments here and there, not as good as the film. I don't find any of the characters likeable at all which makes things difficult. It also tries to be an edgy, gritty show without doing any of the heavy lifting to make this believable.
