I read in some review (maybe the one in The Hollywood Reporter but it might have been at TV Guide Online) that the episode lengths vary per show. I haven't watched it yet, but the consensus seems to be that the premiere episode is too long for its story. I still hold out hope the series will emerge as a quality one.
I watched it on Youtube via Apple TV 4k last night. The banding was horrible but otherwise it looked ok. The episode was boooring tho. Not a single joke was funny. It was gratingly bad about the repeated 'joke', designed to upset people who support 2a. And spoiler
He should have chosen to talk about the devil instead of himself
