That being said - it has slowly built up and I'm enjoying it more. I'm just worried that with so few episodes in a first season that requires quite a bit of exposition - that it will not hook enough viewers to get a 2nd season.
What do you guys think?
it was renewed for a 2nd season before they even started filming. . that's why they are taking it so slow
None of the characters are likable, except for the High School kid (I hope we see him again), and I suspect by the end of the "season" (2 more episodes), we'll lose a few more of the main cast thus far (barber's wife, ex-wife of lead guy, and junkie son all have "dead meat" stamped all over them).
My only real problem with the show -- which has since been addressed elsewhere -- is that despite all the issues the main series had with characters of color. . . . for a show set in LA, by the end of Episode 2, ALL THREE Black Characters were dead.
either malicious, or tone-deaf, by the showrunner.
and they have been called to task for it.
but I'm enjoying the show otherwise.
