    The Take is powerful and seamless. Wonderful, sociopathic performance by Tom Hardy. My only complaint is that it's unrelentingly bleak and dark. Could really use some black humor a la The Sopranos. I've only seen the first two episodes (only ones available so far on Netflix). Hope future episodes have some humor to balance out the antics of whack job Freddy.

    You can feel Hardy and his mad energy desperately pushing The Take along, but you can hear the gears grinding.

    It's every bit as good as "The Sopranos" was in its prime.

    Hardy and the supporting cast deliver.
