keeps getting better and better
16 December 2014 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Wow. You have to seen this in sequence with the prior episodes but it is still pretty amazing.

When did quirky become the hallmark of a quality series? I suspect the lineage is along the lines of Breaking Bad or The Sopranos or Dead Like Me.

In any case this is likely one of the quirkiest shows ever.

And so far in season 1 it refuses to plateau and rest on its laurels. Even though it could if it wanted to. PERSON OF INTEREST for example ran through one entire season without ever changing its formula.

But this show keeps testing, tweaking, and developing its characters.

Reminds me of BANSHEE, my other super-fave and in many ways similar in that it too keeps testing the audience.

Great episode.
