It was literally on every Cinemax station at the same time this weekend. I figured they really wanted people to watch it.

It was a damn good show. It was pretty sweet. Basically if you want to watch a show where: (spoilers)

Badass gets out of prison, goes straight to bar,

bangs really hot bartender with huge tits,

Gets in high speed, action packed chase,

Goes to another bar, gets I. Fight, kills guy,

Steals indenty of new incoming dead sheriff

Becomes sheriff of small town

Gets in more fights

Reunites with hawt ex wife, who is also a badass

Bad guy is revealed

Kills bad guys henchmen

Rides off on motorcycle

Rock music...credits

I've heard a lot of "meh" reviews. I guess it's supposed to be a pulp show, even more so than True Blood since it was put on Cinemax. I may wait a bit before getting into it.

I think it filmed all around, the courthouse in Monroe, some places in Mooresville, etc.

Yeah the pilot made it seem like it wanted to be a very gratuitous and kitsch pulp show. I watched it mainly to look for local scenes - but it showed very little in terms of plot or character development.

I'll give it a few more episodes to see if it establishes an intriguing identity.

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
