I enjoyed this show so far!
Didn’t care for the premier
No one I care enough about to watch more episodes
I see a LOT of potential, too!
I’m cautiously optimistic, but this first episode shows us a lot. First, I’m extremely impressed with the cast. Huffman, Hutton, Miller & Martinez (sounds like a law firm) are all solid, sure-fire winners, with the added excellence of Mr. W Earl Brown. Yes, it’s true. He won my heart in Deadwood. So, from the gate this series is way ahead. I’m also impressed with the directing & editing. Each scene snaps with electric vitality. Big plus is the lack of any form of glamor or over-sentimentality in these most distressing corners of our culture & society. Texture is not slick, either. The atmosphere moves from dark, drugged-up intimacy to overhead fluorescent reality without even taking a deep breath. With a lot of authorities & institutions represented, this is *so* not a procedural format. We are being transported through the worlds of every participant in this crime and all the contributors at the most basic levels. This world is raw, but not indigestible as presented by American Crime. I’m sincerely hoping this series continues to run with this fresh vision. I’m hanging in there if it continues the way it has begun.
