Anyone watching it? I'm almost finished with the season.

In the words of Astro, it's vanilla. Everything is competent. They writing is OK, the acting is OK, it isn't bad, but... It's dull and generic.

Is it? Seemed cool from the commercials. I dislike streaming so not watching, but was hoping it was good regardless.
I like the Ryan character. He can be updated pretty easily decade by decade.

They did update him well. And John K. is good as him... Maybe it just didn't click with me. Don't let me turn you off from checking it out, my buddy loves it.

The way I described it to my friend was that in all eight episodes, there wasn't a single really memorable scene. Something that you'd want to watch over. Everything was very generic and by the book. Well done, but by the book.

Ah, i see.
No worries turning me off or anything. You’re right about needing memorable scenes of course.
