    I've heard fantastic things about it, but haven't watched any of it yet.

    Some of the best writing I've seen period; and we have art direction and acting to boot. Television or not. It's gritty and dark. McCounahey's character is riveting and iconic; the plot leaves you guessing and scared. It's not for the light of heart, but watch it.

    Just watched the first four episodes, and won't be able to resist watching the next two yet tonight.


    My only regret is that I didn't wait two more weeks so that I could watch the entire thing at the same time.

    The show somehow manages to make Breaking Bad look light-hearted.

    The show is so intense and so packed full of details that I don't like watching more than two episodes at a time. It's draining.

    Also, McConaughey just kills it in this show. Absolutely kills it. Possibly the best television performance I've ever seen.

    Theoretically, if a person were so inclined, how might that be done in a situation like this? Lets assume the person so inclined is not particularly tech savvy.

    A triumph. Really rewarding show, for those with the stomach.
