Anyone else see the first episode? looks like it's going to be very deep and dark... just like McConaghey says in the trailer.

I watched it the other night. Very slow, might be too slow for me. Hannibal is the best serial killer show on TV right now and it's not even close,

I really liked it because at the end of the episode I still had no clue where this is going...

 

I also think Harrelson and McConaughey are a good team for the show. 

 

The wife fell asleep on the couch while I was transfixed trying to figure it out. Very cool.

I absolutely loved it. Honestly can't remember a premiere I liked more in a really long time.

 

The direction of the show, this season and beyond will be interesting. 8 episode season I believe? And then a complete cast/plot change for the following season(s). Can't wait to see where it goes this year.

supposedly these will be done in year segments or seasonal and a new team will appear next year for a new crime to solve. keeps it fresh and interesting.

 

huge fan of noir.

Agreed with the last few posts. Great premier, superb acting, and lots of possibilities. Really excited about this one. It'll bridge the gap between now and Mad Men nicely.

I guess you never seen "Fraility" which is awesome.

He has the acting chops.. Just loves those paychecks from the romantic comedies of the ealy 2000's

Or Mud.  McConaughey is a helluva talented actor and the perfect choice for this role.

 

 

 

 

Along with most of the other posters I very much enjoyed it. 

 

I also think that its visually very interesting.  Cinematography is on par with Breaking Bad.

Just my guess, but the 2012 Rustin knows that the person convicted for the 95 or whatever year murder was not the real killer. This probably leads him to become disenchanted with the police dept. and leaving. They were obviously under some political pressure to produce a suspect, hence the preacher guy he was rude to in the station.

Also, Harrelson's character is banging the girl who came into the office briefly.
