Entertaining and suspenseful

Watched the first season on Hulu and I wanted to keep on going. I hope AMC keeps the series going. I will say that it makes a difference watching a season continuously instead of once a week. This is why I love watching or catching up on most shows on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon’s prime. That said, if I’m bored with a series it won’t make a difference. I won’t watch it. I love the line up of actors. I’m a big fan of Sturgess and schwimmer. The rest of the cast is great. I really enjoy the story line. As any drama series, it gets frustrating when someone screws up again and again. But it’s relatable. I’m looking for season 2, if not out, I’m looking forward to season 2.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (1):

The series combines bittersweet moments and complicated, flawed main characters to create a darkly entertaining show. Although the overall narrative is predictable, each episode features its own array of mishaps that must be dealt with as they navigate through the corrupt restaurant underworld.

The problems Moran and Patras confront are foreseeable. But it's their close, loyal relationship that offers just enough emotional depth to keep you invested in their troubled world. If you have a taste for the edgy and imperfect, this series may work for you.
