Quotes

Amy Jellicoe: This kingdom, this amazing kingdom we have made. This monstrous kingdom. Its castles are magic. They are beautiful. They are built on dreams, and iron... and greed. They are inorganic and cannot sustain. No kingdom lasts forever. Even this will end. And life and earth will reign again.

Bullseye!
16 January 2013 | by markymnstrSee all my reviews

In its own strange quirky way this season's opening episode hit the perfect chord. Timely, touching, relevant and so spot on. I typically am not a fan of voice overs, but in this instance Laura Dern's was haunting and perfect. And, IMO, yes we need more media entertainment discussing, exploring these hugely important issues in our society so that they become more a part of our cultural consciousness.

Last year when this series started I didn't think I'd make it past the second or third episode but it kept growing on me like an acquired taste. Sort of like the Wire did. I'm sooo glad I stayed with it. It's rapidly becoming one of my favorite shows on the small screen. Just wish it was an hour instead of a half hour.
