      I liked Season 1, but what spoilt it for me was I thought that they badly rushed the ending.
      I'll definitely give this a look as Billy Bob Thornton is always good value.

      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.

      Really happy you reviewed this Cas.
      Thank you.

      Watched first episode last night, thoroughly enjoyed it as was good to see it return. Thoroughly enjoyed S1 as it grew as the season went on.

      Was quite shocked to see Lou Diamond Phillips character bite the bullet so soon

      Really liked the first season. As @Fake Shempz said, I thought it was rushed a bit at the end.

      Looked really good too.

      Think 10 episodes per season would be ideal. 8 a bit rushed

      Season 2 isn't HDR. Still 4k. Bit odd.

      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.

      Checked on my TV's app and through the Xbox. And they don't make it easy to find the UHD version at all. Don't know why they have to have separate options for it.

      Halfway through season 2 and it's just as great. I love the fact Billy's mates are predominantly female :laugh:

      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.

      Also deserves another point for David Cross' wig!

      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.

      Episode 7 has to be one of the funniest, off the wall episodes of TV I've seen in some time...and that includes the Interview room episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine last season! Hilarious stuff.

      I can’t seem to find the 4K version on my 4K Apple TV or the prime app on my Sony tv. Any tips ?

      What I had to do was keep scrolling down (for a long time) until it came to the '4k tv shows included with prime' list.

      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.

      Yes very good show. Reminds a bit of Bosch, got an LA noir feel to it.

      Yeah came here to complain about it, mianly because Season 1 in HDR is the best looking show I've seen that is presented with HDR literally better than anything for HDR on Netflix so was looking forward to more HDR goodness but oddly it doesn't have it.....

      Altered Carbon in HDR on Netflix was pretty eye candy

      I've found streaming to be crippled by low bandwidth. The world cup is being shown in HLG at 40mbps. That's where they need to be aiming. 15mbps is too low.

      YouTube the only ones that give you unlimited bit rate for HDR or 4K SDR.
      15 mbs is nothing...

      I got the exact same 'Lynchian' vibe too. Also a subtle 'Breaking Bad' type feeling also.

      Great series... very dark.

      Loved Duplass in this. Always bordering on the edge of madness and only crossing that line when he becomes a victim of his own desires.
