Superb story writing but I would not compare this show to breaking bad as others have.

Wow. One of the best premiere episodes I've seen ever. The setting and especially Woody Harrelsons acting is stellar. This is a great first episode to start of an amazing season.

When I first saw that Matthew McConaughey was going to be in this series, I thought that it wasn't going to be anything to watch. After a few episodes, I certainly changed my mind. It seems this show has the right director, actors and plot line. I'd rate it above Game of Thrones.

Two very fine actors, and how their appearance differs from past to present - wow - just amazing... builds a lot of suspense wondering how they get from "there" to "here"

Watched the first episode and I liked it, It was good seems like it could turn out to be the next breaking bad
