    watched the first episode. It is really well written and well acted, but I don't know if I can get past the premise.

    My concern with the premise, from reading a summary, is that it is ripped off from Get Shorty.

    I am really liking it, and Noho Hank is hilarious. Definitely enjoy anytime he is on screen.

    I like it but I don't love it, yet. It's better than this years' silicon valley, though. It just hasn't been as good for me.

    Couldn't even finish the 4th episode. Kept trying but nope - not good.

    Binged 3 last night and will finish today. I think it’s good, wish it was a little funnier as actors (other than Winkler) aren’t really funny if you are not in that subculture. I’m sure if you live in LA the whole thing is tremendous. Need to keep phasing in more than just flat affect from Hader to truly be a show.

    Finally caught up on the last few episodes. Love that it started to go darker. Really enjoyed the direction they’ve taken it in.

    Thought the season finale was great. Really enjoyed it.

    Hearing good things. On the list to watch...

    Finally saw The Night Of from HBO. Episode 1 great, rest decent/good, with flaws, solid finale...worth it. Turturro was terrific as was the lead detective and Naz. Weird handling of Chandra character and court room scenes were just mediocre and not very realistic. Rikers scenes were all good. Liked it.

    The Night Of had some fatal plot problems that derailed something that should have been great.
