Anyone watching this? I'm a few episodes in and it's pretty entertaining. Has a Breaking Bad vibe to it...

    I just finished the series and loved it. Not as good as Breaking Bad, which is brilliant, but a VERY good show. Hoping that Netflix keep this show going, as they have cancelled a few shows recently after only one season.
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me

    i just started this.  two episodes in, liking it.  Definitely got that Breaking Bad feeling to it.  Also pretty good soundtrack, heard Radiohead at the end of episode one.

    i binged it  since i was off today.  Really good.  Kinda predictable but there were some shocking moments like the priest and the baby thing.  And the Snells and the mexicans making that deal in the last episode.

    Through 2 episodes and I enjoy it. Definitely more of an entertainment piece. Keeps me interested, but everything has been done before, a little better.

    I watched the first episode about 2 weeks ago, then watched the other 9 this past weekend.

    Just watched this over the past few days. Really liked it.  The Snell lady is fucking crazy!  The scene at the end with the preacher and baby was brutal to watch....that felt like it lasted forever.  Good stuff...can't wait for season 2.

    I fast forwarded through that scene.  I couldn't watch it.
    Kinda felt like the show was just barely OK once I finished.  I liked the acting...couldnt stand either of his children, though, and was annoyed at pretty much every scene they were in.  The Fed was sorta annoying as well.

    The ones with the Rednecks (duck!) and the Cartel were fascinating and I found Bateman's character to be weird yet interesting.

    Kids are annoying in every show.  These ones actually weren't too bad I thought.  I really liked that they told the kids what was going on and weren't trying to hide it from them the whole time.....feels like that never happens in shows like this where the parents are up to some shady shit.

    These rednecks are crazy!  I was sitting there in shock with my mouth wide open for a couple mins after she wasted Del...that was wild.  Will be interesting to see season 2 and this casino scam Marty is cooking up.

    I wasn't a massive fan of the kids, but thought it captured how kids would be in that sort of situation,pretty well. The teenage girl, is essentially a selfish teenage girl, so in real life she is unlikable at times too.

    I hated the Fed, but I thought that was the point, so you had more to like about Marty, who is a criminal. It also adds a story line of the troubled and off the rails Fed.

    I loved the show and can't wait for season 2.

    Really enjoyed it.  The Flashback episode was the highlight for me.  Really can see how someone's ethics are not always what they seem.

    Del  was right about JP Morgan being no better than working with the cartel's finances.  JP Morgan and friends took down the economy in 2008 and got the taxpayer's to bail them out.   

    I enjoyed the show a lot.  It was great that for the most part everyone is honest with each other (except with the police obviously).  I don't like watching Three's Company type shows where everything is a misunderstanding.   

    Preacher calling Marty the devil was great.  Marty actually was there sincerely to check on preacher and doesn't have a clue how evil he (Marty) is.

    Snell is my favorite character.   Nothing phases him.

    Finally finished. Really liked this show. Lots of twists and turns. Ruth is N intriguing character. That actress was in The Americans too in a small role.

    I liked it.  No character development.  Just moving the plot along.
