Season 1 went under the radar for most folks I spoke too after watching it in one day much like Hand Of God with Ron Pearlman.
Billy Bob makes it work,fighting the system and the money corrupt machines set against him.
Looking forward to season 2 and it's only 8 eps a season so easily watchable.
Quality comes in short doses they say.
Agreed that 8 eps does give a slightly rushed feeling, particularly towards the end. Would definitely benefit from that little bit more breathing room. Bosch is good example of how that little extra can really help.
Halfway through season 2 and it's just as great. I love the fact Billy's mates are predominantly female
Mark Duplass deserves some recognition imo. He is basically playing his character from Creep, a deranged narcissist, but he is so full of charimsa. I've actually found myself laughing out loud at the villains.
Didn't you find things going very Lynchian, Cas, when Billy awakes south of the border?! It all gets very surreal there for a while in set up and with characters that could've been Vacationing from Twin Peaks. I had to check my libation.
Watched all season 2 and found it brilliant. Even better than season 1, and that's saying something. Maybe a bit rushed and would have benefitted from another episode or two, but still excellent. I hope they make a season 3. Watched in HD and it was fine for me.
