I was hooked after the first episode because it's what is NOT said that I keep waiting for. Aside from an amazing cast, the characters are holding back so many secrets, some old, some new, and all painfully itching to get out. There weren't enough episodes to fully disclose the depth and complexities of the relationships of all the characters who share a history all the way back to child hood. I was so relieved when Jean finally sought out Phillip to clear the air after he spent the better part of his life being punished as the bad boy he'd been profiled to be by the lies and deceptions of Harold, and by the utter betrayal of his crazy, criminal father. Each episode left me wondering who the bad guys are and who the good guys are. This is the first time I've had opportunity to see Jason Momoa in anything, and he is mesmerizing. His physicality dominates the screen, and is particularly noticeable in the presence of the pale and anxious character played earnestly by Martin Henderson, who is really good at appearing to have everything under control while he is raging under the surface for all his lost opportunities. The two men are so different, yet not so different, when it comes to moral flexibility. And even though Kopus is supposed to play the villain, he's likable. Harold, tortured with ghosts and secrets, is supposed to be the good guy, and is hard to sympathize with because he is devious. Jean is fragile and barely present, while her daughters pretty much raise themselves. Tom Sizemore is so scary it's hard to believe he's acting. I waited each week eagerly to see what was next, and I hope they approve Season 2, because 6 or 7 more episodes may tell the real story, and may give Kopus and Harold opportunities for redemption. Otherwise, all the characters seem so miserable. And we need to know who's responsible for those cancer causing sink holes in the woods. More!
