Great show, good cast, absolutely worth watching

Show is well made, but it's very slow. Will continue to watch but the pacing needs work. Acting is great.

The pacing is horrendous throughout. There's slow and then there's Dannemora. The problem is the first half isn't that interesting which makes it painful. But even during the interesting part of the escape, scenes tend to linger for 10 minutes longer than they need to. It feels like Ben Stiller was trying to meet a page requirement or something.

Very gripping, very adult and a very excellent soundtrack! A refreshing departure from paint by numbers television; demanding patience and investment in character over clichéd cliffhangers and ad-break bait.

starts out pretty slow but the second half is engaging
