    I’m really hoping for Felicity Huffman’s return! She deserves it!

    I’ll absolutely be checking this show out. It has the potential to be really great and hit on a lot of the societal issues going on in America right now.

    Can’t wait! Felicity Huffman is one of my favorite actresses. Doesn’t seem to disappoint in the trailers (in the little amount of time that she’s in them lol).

    “American” certainly is the catchphrase in television and movies these days, ” American Horror Story”, “The Americans”,
    “American Crime” , ” American Crime Story “, ” American Dad “, “American Sniper “… Next year the new buzzword
     will be ” Empire “. Can’t wait to see Streep in her next sequel ” Empire In The Woods “.

    I’ve seen reviews so far from NYTIMES, LATIMES, Hollywood Reporter and Variety and they have all been extremely positive, if not downright complimentary. In particular they cite the performances of Hutton, Huffman, Penelope Miller and W. Earl Brown.

    I’m going to watch one more episode to see if it peaks my interest. I wasn’t sold on tonights episode alone. I wanted more Felicity Huffman. Any chance she’ll be submitted supporting? Show seems more ensemble-ish….

    I didn’t like it. It had a couple of good moments but it was just meh to me. Also, and hopefully someone can explain this to me: Why was the kid arrested even though the other guy commited the crime? I could have swore they said he was getting arrested for murder and all I could think was “Wouldn’t that be accesory to murder?”

    The beginning was confusing but i got more into it as it progressed. Most critics have watched the first four episodes I believe so they have much more to base their reviews on so I will definitely keep watching. It seems like a slow burn kinda show unlike its lead in scandal so you get a big contrast imo. Anyway I thinknits a huge threat for miniseries Emmys.

    I’m not sold on that first episode, either.  It has good moments and potential for sure, just wasn’t as engrossing as I wanted it to be.  I agree it’s going to be a slow burner, I just hope that it gets burning a little bit quicker otherwise I and other people won’t keep watching.

    This show isn’t eligible for Drama Series right? It’ll be competing in Miniseries, as will Huffman?

    Can’t say that I was impressed. It came across as nothing but a menagerie of violence. Just because it has Oscar and
    Emmy winners attached to it does not validate it. It was to all over the place for me. I thought I’d have a seizure from
    all those quick cuts. Style over substance. Had a big problem trying to distinguish the tent-pole story which I thought
    would be the Hutton/Huffman storyline. I found myself playing Sherlock Holmes with this mess. Is the druggie white
     girl the daughter in law of Hutton/Huffman? Is she the one who survived the home invasion? Is the story told in
     a non-linear fashion? That thing was to much work with no pay off. I’d be hardpressed to revisit it.

    Man, I couldn’t disagree with you guys more!  I thought the first episode read like a movie, and I was enthralled every step of the way.  This DEFINITELY has a shot at the nomination in either Drama or Miniseries, depending on where it ends up … but I’m thinking Miniseries.  If that’s the case, have you all looked at the potential nominees for Miniseries Actress?!?  It’s one of the most talented fields I’ve ever seen!  I can’t WAIT for next week’s episode b/c everything is going to continue to be ever so intertwined.
