    This is a great ensemble cast. Now we'll have to see what they do with the material provided.

    Once again, pay cable is restoring the balance to the force by showing the nudity that Hollywood has given up in the pursuit of the almighty PG-13.

    Pretty good start. I thought the follow up special went a bit too far in the comparisons to The Godfather, but it was interesting as well. I've addedit to my record list.

    This show is going to require a ton of "get started" backstory before it really hits it's groove. That's a problem in some ways. But it should be fun.

    The storytelling in this is incredibly tight and the art direction is fantastic. I tend to go for the historical dramas, and this has worked out far better then I expected.
