Will refuse to watch anything with Hardy in it.
The man is a complete waste of upper class body hair.
He's like the Male Miley Cyrus to me. I get full skin crawls when I see him. This didn't even happen with Jimmy Saville. He could be the source of all mundane evil in this dimension given shape and an overgrown tongue.
I fucking dispise that fuck.

I've only halfway watched it, but thought the first 10 minutes were slow as hell.

It Picked up a little and there were some interesting scenes. Hardy is intense in his performance bit i dunno if thats enough. I'll give it one more episode.

Agreed. I don't think this show will work if it's just a vehicle to display Hardy's intensity. Fortunately there are some other good casting choices. If they are going to keep Hardy intense and mysterious, they need to give the other cast members time to shine.

I thought the cast had some solid moments. Absolutely loved the lamd ownership reveal, I think it has potential but agree overall.

Jonathan Pryce was great. So was Oona Chaplin although I'm biased because IMHO she is so damn beautiful.

Is it me or does it seem she and Hardy's characters had some sexual tension going on? Given i'm a perv i may be misreading it.

No I think they were having an incestuous relationship and the kid that Hardy is paying the old man to watch over is their child.

Big ending moment on #2, but still...not the most compelling show. I'll give it one more episode.

If you ever feel like reassessing, I'd recommend Bronson. I was a fan after that.

Second episode was a bit slower, but it had an interesting ending. Still think this has great potential
