Disappointing
15 July 2017 | by kabin-882-534873See all my reviews

Found this after looking for Eric Schweig vehicles and really wanted to like it. Currently watching Season One Episode Seven.

The 'shaky cam' is distracting and in no way contributes artistically.

The gratuitous vulgarity feels like lazy writing, which is confirmed by dialogue that is often more stilted than insightful.

A lot of the acting is either wooden or heavy-handed.

The actors portraying villains seem to have studied at the "Snidely Whiplash" school of drama - if they had mustachios they would be twisting them.

There is little subtlety or nuance in the dialogue or acting or plot development.

A rape prosecution relies on a non-witness instead of DNA evidence? Vote out the current chief in favor of the one the community knows is corrupt who stole evidence of his corruption and assaulted a council member in the process? Maybe it's me. Maybe people really do interact as portrayed in this series. Maybe people are as illogical as presented here (heck, there are millions still supporting Trump). If so, the situation is even worse than I understood it to be.

The issues are compelling and real and I think deserve better handling than I've seen so far. Hope the series improves.
