I'm Caring Less and Less For Any Character On This Show
Into Episode 3 of Season 3 and I just really don't care anymore. Too many incidental characters and story lines are spoiling the broth.
Whereas with The Sopranos I felt an emotional attachment to the characters (as heinous as they were), I'm just not feeling it here. It's as if the writers don't have a seasonal, let alone a series arc in mind.
This series continues to waste a great cast.
On the upside, the set design and music are wonderful. The series really evokes the early '20s (not that I was there).
Take some money from the art design budget and put it into some great writing.
Which is not to say that this show is unredeemable. But the series needs to cut down on the incidental characters and flesh out a good "core" cast in much tighter plot lines.
