Stick with it.....

I have just watched the first 2 episodes and felt the need to comment. I understand the complaints about the first episode, especially in regards to the self indulgent trip of substance and alcohol abuse. I'll be honest, it bored me, it became tedious and I almost gave up. Episode 2, however, is a different ball game. This goes on to explain his troubled childhood and puts the first episode into perspective. If you found the first episode difficult to watch, please stick with it, I have a feeling it will be worth it.
