Every single person I have recommended this to has said it's amazing. Best series of 2016, and there was a lot of competition. Some asshat at Cinemax decided not to renew it, because it wasn't developed under his watch. Hollywood is full of crybabies with tiny dicks.
Best new series of 2016. Fantastic. Much more filmic in style and really hope it continues and look forward to watching S1 again. Ólafur Darri Ólafsson also appears for a few episodes, so the quality is never in doubt; his catalogue of work is one of a kind in TV shows = true detective, trapped, banshee, the missing, and this.
It's a solid show with a fantastic premise. Unfortunately it went in a unexpected and slightly convoluted direction that prevented it from being truly great. Both Logan Marshall-Green and Peter Mullan do some of their best work to date.
