Wish you guys would list this in the calendar based on the FX airing in the US instead of the UK BBC One airing. Just seems that would make more sense. Or at the very least list both and allow users to select which one they want added to their calendar.

Tom Hardy is, AS always excellent In a role - menacing, and downright scary. Like the show so far..

Though it might not have the suspense or the plot twists of some of the greatest TV series, it is indeed a very very good one. A show well done in almost every aspect. Maybe the plot isn't the most interesting one, but it does include several layers. The atmosphere is incredible, the casting/acting top notch, costumes/sets excellent and image quality superb. The scenario did include the element of the supernatural but in a way that the viewer is not really sure and is also addressing several of the racism matters of its time. The fact that there are some characters more pragmatic and some more believers show that the makers have their own view on the supernatural elements that the people of that time believed in. Ignorance created myths and that is the most interesting part of it. I hope the next season truly unveils its potential.

A relationship, taboo, – _Britons seem to be "intelligent" enough to avoid practicing the levels of hypocrisy regarding sex and faux morality exhibited by their cousins from across the Ocean, more so now that they have a walking & talking Dyed Kind of Blond Toupee as President Elect_; How a very powerful economic enterprise with its evil machinations arm wrestle with the political power to have the latter do as the former desires for its own benefit over and above of those of those of The Empire, The Crown or The People; A conspiracy which rapidly evolves into a highly sophisticated and complex three hand chess match where every move of any party is responded strategically by either a defensive or an ofesive move tactic from the rest; And just one man has the intelligence, smarts and guts to come to the become convinced at heart that he's who holds a chess wildcard that'll eventually determine who wins or loses the match. In his hand lays the power to exchange the wildcard for whatever he wishes to any of the other player/s which hold very high stakes the outcome of the match; That is a man with lots of potential power in his hand but at extreme personal peril, there are no rules in this game, and eliminating him is a valid way to get hold of the wildcard. The only way to survive is by initially being the brightest, smartest, fastest and toughest of all, then he may have the chance to play each opponents against the other, and that could let him to outplay both and get out alive, made an extremely rich man with a little of lots of luck. **The only thing missing in the script is Dickens' signature.** **P.S.** >If you see the critic from an **Inkoo Kang self named MTV's chief TV critic**, please send her message a reminding her that still writing TV reviews for what is a decadent "**Pop Outlet**" (_that's been suffering and identity crisis since music video streaming became the norm and MTV didn't want to see it, but worse after all these years they still haven't figured what they're and the relevance of their existence, meanwhile they had totally lost their clout with everyone, but more so, if it's even possible, with the **YOLO generation**_) and being so off the point in her critiques is probably the two reasons why she has not been able to move up the ladder to a more "respectable", influential and thriving media outlets like the LATimes, BostoGlobe or NYTimes. If I were her I would start writing better critiques yesterday to land a semi-decent job **when sooner than later MTV forecloses** or **otherwise it's broadcasting network is striped, sold and everything else made redundant**.

If the main actor wasn't Tom Hardy this show would probably would be incredibly boring. But his performance is consistently captivating! Very well done.

This was fucking amazing. Nothing more to say about it. I can't wait for season 2.

very very very very good
