In 1990s Boston, an assistant district attorney and a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran work together to take on a case that grows to involve, and ultimately subvert, the entire criminal justice system of Boston.
Seven-part limited series about Roger Ailes, the founder of Fox News. It focuses on the past decade which Ailes arguably became the Republican Party's de facto leader, and the sexual harassment accusations that brought his career to an end.
The asthetics of the show is in my opinion a beautiful mix between modern-western, surrealistic shots and some backflashs in an own style.
It's not one genre per se, even if u first expect some kind of gritty noir, more a cross-over with a lot of eccentricity and absurdity, which could put you into the 'hate it'-group or exactly the diffrent one. For me it's the later one, because it's still got a 'could be real life'-feeling to the characters and the setting.
If u don't like voice over commentory it's not for u.
It reminded me roughly of Fargo -the movie-, the old Guy Richie with a bit of No Country For Old Man. Even if I like Ben Kingsleys part in the show, don't watch it just for him, u would probaly be disappointet.
After episode 4 there was just one scene, which I thought was to far fetched and not in line with the tone of the show so far.
