Best New Show
I can't get over how hooked I am on this show! What a superb treat. I started watching because I love Elisabeth Moss (Peggy of Mad Men). She is a brilliant actress, but not the only star in this show. Everyone, so far, as of Ep. 4 is wonderful. I usually multi-task while watching tv, but not here. I put the ipad down and watch with all my senses and faculties.
Uncensored Excellent first two episodes
Elisabeth Moss is excellent - certainly a departure from her character on Mad Men. The beauty of New Zealand is captured - as well as the simplicity of life in that part of the world. I have many relatives that live in NZ - they all describe an idyllic, simple life. The first two episodes drew me in and i'm ready for the next episode. There's no censorship on the episodes i downloaded. The rating was changed to TV-MA. I had avoided downloading these episodes because of previous postings of censorship but I noticed the rating had changed so took a chance. For those hesitant - it's ok - the episodes are in tact.
The acting is solid, the setting is beautiful, and at the beginning, the plot is intriguing. The show is strangely written, reveling in dysfunction, and depression, trying so hard to be twisted and different that it abandons reality and believable story arc. Towards the end of the season, the plot starts to unravel. The characters miss obvious choices and the plot 'surprises' are predictable. Wouldn't recommend.
