Trivia

When Otto goes to visit Irish Moe at the bar in the show's seventh episode, there are a lot of Celtic Football Club memorabilia in his office. The club is in fact Scottish, but the reasons behind the founding of Celtic Football Club were largely connected to the Irish immigrant community in Glasgow's east end in the late 19th century.

should have been exceptional judging from the pilot - still worth watching
14 January 2017 | by nereidonSee all my reviews

the pilot was close to brilliant and it makes you wonder what the delay was with the decision to give it a whole season. Unfortunately the new episodes feel different compared to the pilot and not in the best way.

Although that just means that a series that could have been brilliant became "just" very good. I feel first it seemed to be more a character study focused on Pete, pretty soon you realize it is more about who is coning who and so it becomes more of a prolonged version of Matchstick Men (or any other con artist movie).

There are a couple of twists in the show and sometimes it might make your head spin but in the end it is quite entertaining with good to great acting performances and an ending that doesn't feel like a letdown even if the series doesn't get another season.
