    I watched the premiere, and I’m not sure if I liked it or didn’t. The “American Beauty” comparisons rang true, right down to Spacey/Bening roles with Robbins/Hunter. I really wanted to love Holly Hunter here, and she was good (the silent mirror scene, in particular) but I couldn’t stand her accent/dialect.

    Haven’t watched it yet, but along with the sub-par reviews, the same-day ratings came in very low.   So, prospects of a second season are probably in jeopardy right now.

    The pilot was mediocre.
    It’s not True Blood bad because the show is very different, but it feels like a Six Feet Under on steroids, which is not a very good combo. At all.

    Surprised how trashed this show is getting considering the pedigree. I don’t see it as an Emmy player at all at this point.

    They should have burned this one off instead of Mosaic.

    I didn’t love or hate it. I think there is potential but it’s not gonna shine through until 6-7 episodes in when people are invested in the characters. The show lacks a hook so it’s only shot at being any good is creating believable, relatable, interesting characters. They didn’t fuck any of them up yet so that is a positive. But this was pretty forgettable too.

    This is all I have to say about this show…

    I agree with the first part but I think that the characters are already pretty much fucked, I mean is any of them really relatable? I hate all of them. Even Ramon (which I tolerated during the Pilot) after episode 102.
