Just finished this and very impressed. I reckon it could work well on a week to week basis as well. Glad it got a 2nd season.
Loved the dual (for want of a better word) villains... That's 2 in a row that Peter Mullan has absolutely nailed following on from 'Quarry'. I also feel that Jason Butler Harner played the FBI agent role very well.
There was one scene in the final episode that I definitely could have done without, since I'd prefer my "uncomfortable" moments not to come so cheaply..Pastor baptising child in the river
Just finished this last night. Really enjoyed it but I kinda hope there isn't another season but wifey went onto imdb afterwards and it had a season 2 there but no dates or details..
I don't mind Jason Bateman. Loved Arrested Development but he is not a really good actor. He works in a specific type of role and that's it. What you see is what you get.
Couple of things..
His acting was terrible when he was getting his toe nails pulled. He's obviously never lost a nail because it's ******* excruciating yet within 5 seconds of it happening he was seemingly over it.
Secondly, I'm not much of a gun nut but if that
redneckhillbilly b*tch had really blown the Mexican's head off with that shotgun at such close proximity, Jason Bateman's head would have taken just as much damage surely?
Loved the 'I killed Jimmy Hoffa' conversation too.
