Emmy Potential
18 July 2018 | by grz-98-880629See all my reviews

First, Brian Cox needs to win an Emmy. He hits the nail on the head in every scene and hold the view with the power he purports to possess. Like George C. Scott as Patton, Cox was made for this role. A great job.

Second, the characters here are complex, but you have to appreciate it. They have strengths and weakness, no one is clearly a villain, relatively, of course.

Cox should win an award, and perhaps the show.
