    BBC 2 have showed or will show some Ryan Murphy's shows i.e American Crime Story and Feud etc.,

    I watched ep1 and it passed my would-i-watch-more test

    I'v watched the first season and its not bad but falls into the will it get renewed category. While this show starts off strong its turns rather meh until the final three episodes. The biggest problem with this show for me, is that only one of the three story arcs (Franklin) is anyway interesting with the other two getting way more screen time than they should for very little return.

    I liked episode two from last night. I enjoy the use of music on the show. It has got me interested anyway.

    Really enjoying it ,the chemistry between gustava and the lady is well done

    The CIA guy is so irritating overacting in every scene

    I just caught up with the latest episode. It is moving along well. The actor playing Franklin is very good.

    The series finale was last night as part of a double bill. I thought it was a very good series although reviews seem to be more mixed.

    Does anyone know why Rte have stopped uploading this to RTE player on ep5?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 6 ✭✭✭ Miscreanter


    Season 2 is motoring very well

    The CIA guy is doing a Dustin Hoffman.If he's not saying something he's twitching his face.I can't stand that overacting.

    Series two must be coming soon on BBC two then.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 171 ✭✭ Henryhill2


    I'd give season 2 a 6.5/10

    fast forwarded through the last episode

    I hope they start thinking outside the box a little for the next season,so much routine shows on TV now


  • Registered Users Posts: 528 ✭✭✭ den87

    Cheers

    Reminds me a bit of Ozark

    It's got the Mexicans the police the DEA and the blacks

    Ozark has the Mexicans the DEA the police and the hillbillies

    All the same kind of regurgitated nonsense being churned out

    Series Two starts on BBC Two tonight at 10.50.

    I watched the season 2 finale on BBC last night. I enjoyed this season.

    One thing that irked me was:
    Franklin's character arc. I liked him last season but found him very difficult to warm to this season. His smugness, condescending attitude towards his friends, even the way he was swearing at his mother when she didn't want to accept his money offer, he came across like an arse. I can only assume this was the idea - to show that he was getting to big for his boots - but what I liked about the prison episode is how we can see him slowly losing his softer side. I feel it would have been better to have done this metamorphosis earlier in the season. I'd feel sadder about Franklin losing his softer side, if not for the fact that it didn't seem all that soft this season! I found myself glad he got arrested - although I had warmed to him more by the end of the season.

    I will miss Oso, assuming he is dead. I liked Teddy more this season, and enjoyed the introduction of his brother Matt. Interested to see what happens with Lucia from here. One thing I think the show could use is a strong antagonist. Someone that arrives on the scene and starts to present themselves as a rival. Perhaps the guys that beat up Franklin could become on the side of such a person. That's what I'd like to see next season.

    I like the show. Hope the BBC continue to show it.

    Started watching this a couple of weeks ago and just finished Season 2. Has it been renewed?

    Season 1 I thought was a bit all over the place and Franklin's story was the only one worth pursuing. Teddy's arc has got more interesting this season though - must be a beard thing. Hoping the Oso/Lucia story is done as I never really got in to it.

    I like a few of the supporting cast too such as Jerome and the lunatic Avi provides a bit of comic relief.

    Overall, I'd be a fan but as someone pointed out I'll be hoping for an antagonist next season, presumably the Mexicans. Very impressed with the Idris guy playing Franklin and the soundtrack is excellent.

    Very good, you'd have to fancy series 3 is on the way.

    hows this going so far?


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,331 ✭✭✭✭ PARlance


    Just finished Season 3, it's good but I found it a bit of a slog at times. Some storylines let it down and I found myself losing interest as they switched between them.

    Season 4 has been renewed. I'll watch it for sure but won't be counting down the days.

    Enjoyed the first 2, didn't know where season 3 was going. Dunno if I'd watch another.


  • Registered Users Posts: 44,114 ✭✭✭✭ Mr.Nice Guy


    Season 3 begins on BBC 2 tonight with a double header from 10:30pm.

    I'm watching this on BBC 2 and so I think I'm halfway through season 3 at this point. I'll use spoiler tags for my thoughts on it so far:
    I mentioned how I didn't like Franklin's character turn last season but he's become way worse this season. I really can't stand him now, and to make matters worse the rest of his family circle have become very unlikeable to me too. Even his parents seem to have gone all in on everything. I don't know if I'm supposed to be against them, but that's how I'm feeling this season. There's a scene in the recent episode where his mother rebukes her former boss for not taking care of black people, and I'm going, 'lady, your son is selling crack to the neighbourhood, and you're okay with this.'

    Teddy and Gustavo don't seem to have any depth, while Lucia is missed on the show; I don't know if the actress quit or what.

    Characters I like most this season are the cop Andre, and his daughter. But without looking ahead I am getting the sense it's not going to end well for them. If I had to guess I'd say Franklin or Jerome will end up shooting him and that will be the cliffhanger ending. Hope I'm wrong.

    Season 4 is back. It's OK. An easy watch but it's not hanging together the way it used to.


  • Registered Users Posts: 354 ✭✭ conor678


    I have flown through all 4 seasons of this. I think this is a brilliant show. Really picks up in season 3 and 4. Looking forward to season 5
