    So, I’ve seen 7 episodes of S1 and have some thoughts:

    The Good:

    • Everything involving Julia Garner. She’s an absolute scene stealer, and I’m always waiting for her to appear. A shame her role is so limited.
    • The show has some thrilling moments, and when they’re thrilling, they’re actually really good.
    • It had a fairly decent pilot with an interesting style.
    • The music is quite good.

    The Not So Good:

    • Jason Bateman is lacking emotional range, in my honest opinion. Maybe I’m missing something, but he practically has the same facial expression throughout the first season.
    • It’s kind of all over the place; I feel like some storylines are completely irrelevant to the overall storyline. Maybe come the end of season 1 that changes.
    • The episodes are way too long. They don’t need 55 minutes per episode, they really don’t.

    Is this show good? I watched the first four episodes two years ago and I didn’t feel it. Is it worth continuing?

    I agree with Stegeo. Yeah, it’s not changing the fabric of television, but it’s a really entertaining watch with great directing, interesting plot, and MUCH better acting than people give it credit for. I mean, Laura Linney and Julia Garner BRING it.

    Yep. They’re both phenomenal. And Bateman is good too, his role is just much more internal.

    Yeah, I don’t know why it gets so much hate here. I mean the pilot is trash, in my opinion; it really made me not want to watch the rest but a few episodes in, and it starts to get really good. Like everyone else said, it’s not made to be some cultural phenomenon, but it’s still riveting television with a phenomenal cast and direction. Bateman isn’t exactly challenged acting-wise because he usually plays middle-aged dads in trouble, but it’s still more serious and probably some of his best work. Linney and Garner are amazing, so is McTeer even if she is pretty one-note (the daughter’s good too). Honestly, I wouldn’t have minded if this won Ensemble at SAG.

    “No user starts this shady” - someone culturally relevant.

    I’m so late to this show but I love it. Yeah, it starts slow but it’s worth seeing it through.

    Julia Garner has given the best supporting performance over those THT girls that GD been obsessing over on both seasons.
