Gripping!
8 February 2018 | by jon-6-425239See all my reviews

I never written a review before simply because I can't be arsed. But. I'm making an exception. I've not felt this way with a serialised TV drama since the 3rd and 4th seasons of Breaking Bad.

Breaking Bad is almost mythical to me, now, and that is the benchmark I subconciously rate everything to but this show, in retrospect, may be topping it. There isn't a bad episode. There isn't even an average episode. No filler, just drama, twists and the all important story hooks that pulls it all along. Breaking Bad had average episodes and they were mainly in the first few seasons. It had mega episodes and in that sense Breaking Bad is still top dog but Startup has consistancy.

20 episodes of consistancy.

Then there's the other important aspect and that's the characters. I love everyone of the main cast. Freeman's character, Ronald Dacey, Perlman - when he drops in, in season 2. The mad bearded druggy coder. All the Haitians. Not too interested in Ronald's family but that's essential to Ronald's development throughout the series.

I'll say one more thing, and this is to me the greatest honour I can give, Ronald Dacey is the new Omar. Omar from the Wire. A multi-dimensional, lovable version of Omar from the Wire but just as badass. He kills it.

In fact, with Dacey in mind, I can sum up the whole series in one world.

Gripping.
