The pilot is amazing, everything I could hope for in a pilot. The character development on multiple characters wasn't too deep, just focused on the main aspect of the show's character(s), while still developing on other characters enough to leave more room for later episodes in the season to pick up on. I will definitely be in this for more episodes, and I hope that whomever reads this will be persuaded to pick this series up, too. :)
I love this show! Seriously considering getting a season pass for it! The four stars is because a few things were confusing me, but I'm hoping that in the future it will make more sense.
The coffee cups!
Why do they never have coffee or some type of liquid in their cups? It is in most shows or movies, even the british one's. That is so distracting to me. Carry the cup and the way it moves you know it's empty. Someone, some director, producer, please change this in your films. Otherwise a good show!
