caught uncomfortably between gritty and glossy
24 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Judging by the pilot, this show can't quite decide if it wants to be slick, soapy escapist fare or a gritty drug drama. These two elements don't go well together, with the violence and unpleasantness sucking the fun out of the slick soap while the gloss makes the grittiness feel inauthentic.

The first episode does have a solid action sequence stuck in the middle, and if this were an action series I'd be a little more hopeful, but I can't get too excited about a rather clichéd drama with some nice car chases.

There is also lazy writing, with an almost constant first-person narration that lets the series avoid conveying anything through action instead of just explaining it.

I could see this show improving if it could decide on what it wants to be, but ignore comparisons to Breaking Bad or The Bridge, both of which were much more convincing dramas.
