    Yep, solid first episode.

    Good to see Harry Lloyd again. Back in 2011, he was my first choice as Quicksilver. He's also my favorite (along with JJ Feild) to play Loki if Tom Hiddleston doesn't want to do it anymore.

    He's great, but he was so great playing the loathesome Viserys, it's hard for me to see him as anyone else.

    Not sure about Quicksilver, but hell yes as Loki. I could definitely see that.

    They need to get Robson on this show for an Aryan Brotherhood reunion:

    My Quicksilver would be like the early characterizations which was arrogant, abrasive and contemptuous. That's why Harry Lloyd would do well in the role.

    Solid first episode. The premise is goofy, but the show is so good & well put-together, it elevates the material. The show is better than it really has any business being. This will be good dumb fun, the way 11.22.63 was fun. Looking forward to the rest of it.

    2nd episode in and I already love the series.

    Love the attention to details and the realistic scenarios that played out like the cold open where Other Side Howard stuffed his ears with tissue(?) before being escorted in the Bulgarian's car. I thought there was going to be an explosion but it was just he was expecting to shoot his way out in the car and the noise would have been deafening inside the small confines of a car. That is so cool. In most or all of the TV shows or movies, you just see people shooting inside the car with no ramifications to the ear.

    Oh shit, I forgot all about this show after watching that advance premiere episode a month ago. I guess I know what I'm doing tonight.

    Do they have the whole season up, or is it going to be a week by week thing?

    Not unless Starz is also premiering a new show starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead giving tutorials on self-waxing.

    Simmons is really killing it.

    Is anyone still watching this show. I am drawn in every episode. It is a cool concept, the story advances well, and it is well acted.

    It's probably my favorite thing on television right now.

    He should get some best actor nominations this year for his dual roles.

    He does a great job of playing them so differently and even the subtle differences are great. You just look at his face and know which person he is playing. He does not even need to say a word and you know. He has done a fantastic job with this role.

    I can tell by how he carries himself when he walks which character he's playing. It's currently my favorite TV show. @44nutman
