Trivia

Michael Mann and creator David Milch got along so badly during the making of the pilot that Mann banned Milch from the set for the rest of the season, something Milch resented a lot because he loves watching the actors work up close. See more »

A bit hard to follow but gold when you do...
28 January 2012 | by (SIngapore) – See all my reviews

There is an undeniably large amount of jargon used in the pilot episode, however with a little bit of careful listening the meaning of almost all of it can be easily 'sussed' out. The pilot stands out in my opinion for the creative use of camera angles which allow the viewer to immerse into the horse race. The editorial work is also quite slick. The performances of Nick Nolte and Dustin Hoffman are quite good and I am excited to see Patrick J Adams in the coming episode.

I terms of story-telling and plot lines, the last few minutes of the pilot do help clear up some of the prevailing confusion regarding the direction of the story. All in all the pilot is a solid effort and achieves its goal of setting up the stage for a potentially gripping series.
