Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

After a very solid and gripping pilot episode that had me on the edge from beginning to end, the second  of FX’s new period drama felt a bit lacking. However this is not to say that the episode was terrible. A lot of televisions shows share the plague of a decrease in quality with the second episode, and this show can now share that distinction.

It’s completely understandable, because with the pilot, much more care is taken with its preparation. There is more time to make it, and likely more money spent on producing it. Starting with the second episode and beyond, production of the show takes on a continuous schedule. Episodes are made one after another, often in frantic paces in order to fulfill deadlines. It is usually here that we start to get a sense what the rest of the show is »
