Hunterbergfeld: “An amazing start to a great show! Wow! It was amazing. Regina King is a goddess. Give her all the Emmys in the world.”

mafro987: “Brilliant start. Also the show’s institutional subject matter (no singular crime to frame the narrative around) makes it far less preachy and more subtle. I definitely see ‘The Wire’ comparisons.”

jf123: “God this show is great. Huffman and King were fantastic in this. The writing was stellar, particularly the scene with Janel Moloney and Huffman.”

pulp50: “We all know how good Huffman and King are of course, it looks like they’re going to kill their roles again. This is probably the best work I’ve seen Benito Martinez do.”

Carlo: “Let’s hope Emmy voter don’t just check all those Oscar winners and make room for both Huffman and King in lead!”

Andrew Carden: “Frankly, I’d say King was stronger in this episode than any from her overpraised Emmy-winning turns.”

leothescorpio: “Oh wow. Regina came to collect her third consecutive Emmy Award. Witherspoon & Lange who? Stunning performance and excellent season premiere!”

Choice Chayawat: “In this episode alone, Ana Mulvoy-Ten felt like a bigger lead than Felicity Huffman and Regina King, and what a captivating performance by this young actress!”
