    Brilliant black comedy. This is what the Coen brothers do best. This may even be better than the movie. Yes the dialogue is a bit stretched and i'm sure Minnesotans don't say oh yaaaaa every 2min but it is still a unique and hilarious series. Full Review »
  2. I thought the first season was ok and had an innovative idea. The second season takes everything that is bad from the first (ramming feminism down our throats) and takes little to nothing good from the first season - the general exploration of human sexuality - I also note the acting has gone down a notch. How should they improve? Easy, don't take away the feminist driven agenda, just challenge it with something thats a little better than a straw-man. The show has stopped being intellectually stimulating because of this. I won't be watching seasson 3. Full Review »
  3. What starts as a reasonably thought provoking series on a taboo subject even by today's standards quickly turns into feminist propaganda that is rammed down our throats. The acting is solid, the show is well directed and produced, around 3/4 of the season has a good plot but this is quickly ruined by the 'subtext'. Full Review »

    Despite what other reviewers are saying, this show is actually not that bad if you're not out to try and kill another Sean Bean character.

    Yes, I am no expert on what makes TV shows good or bad or what holes plots have. What I do know, though, is what shows keep me excited for the next episode. And trust me, this one is one of those shows. It's also interesting whenever Sean Bean's character starts describing another one of his legends. His passion for adopting these identities clearly goes beyond what is required to do his job. Towards the end of the character description, he even starts talking like them. Really makes you want to find out what made him like this.

    All I hope is they do the character's backstory justice. If they end up botching the reason behind his condition, this show is dead. But as of right now, I'm still glued.

    I think this series is well done. It can not be compared to other programs. I read the books years ago when they were first published and key events have been represented well and do justice to the story while bringing in artistic changes to move the story along. I like the voice over. The nudity
    Is not needed to convey the story. I like some historic event that have been added and not part of the original story. Over all well done
