    Well that opening episode was ok and if they get a season arc going it might get a hook however for the cast they have put together for it I would have expected a stronger pilot episode even with the unexpected part.

    There is a good premise to the series I hope it can find it's feet with the talent in front and behind the camera there real potential here however it is bleak really bleak.

    Just started watching this and couldn’t stop, excellent tv viewing it reminds me of the shield and the wire the way it’s done



  • Registered Users Posts: 55,467 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Damn that was a fantastic and what a set up for next weeks season finale.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,335 ✭✭✭ California Dreamer


    This is one show I do not want to end. It's simply one of the best dramas that i have ever seen!



  • Registered Users Posts: 55,467 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    That was one fantastic season of TV from start to the finish!



  • Registered Users Posts: 783 ✭✭✭ Captain Red Beard


    Pretty decent ending and a couple of interesting points to kick off a new season.



  • Registered Users Posts: 17,064 ✭✭✭✭ OmegaGene


    Just watched the last two episode together, that was a proper good series for a change I can’t think of anything negative to say about it at all 10/10

    It was an enjoyable season overall but I thought the last episode was too rushed.

    Very disappointed with this, thought it would be better from the reviews on here. Each to their own and all that but I'm baffled how anyone can compare this to The Wire. Nonsense plot, cliched characters and the overuse of curse words is almost comical. Taylor Sheridan is going downhill fast, first Yellowstone and now this. Renner carries this show massively, poor lads back must be fecked. 5/10

    That was a mad season of television. Renner was outstanding, really carried this. Its nonsense, gritty and gloomy but entertaining as hell.
