I was disappointed. Went into it expecting a masterpiece, between the actors (Liev! Voight! Paula Malcomson!) and the showrunner (Ann Biderman! Southland!). But it didn't feel right. I just didn't like the way the pieces fit together.
I'll certainly give it one or two more episodes, if only for Ann Biderman alone, much less the actors. Maybe it can jell better.
I wanted to like this so much more than I did. I liked it, but there wasn't a "gotta watch" feeling when it ended. The solution to the problem with the girl who overdosed was interesting. As was "the bag or the bat" choice given to the guy who was dyed green.
But there was so much character set up, it reminded you every couple of minutes that this was like a pilot. Hopefully it picks up from here.

I'd give this one a handful of episodes to find its footing.
They introduced a lot of characters and premises that they can flesh out in the next weeks. The stories of the brothers and Dad Mickey can be show all by themselves, over and above Ray's adventures. Then we have Ezra, and the other "Marlboro" kid girlfriend sleezeball. Like will the abused kid learn that the first that Dad did was blow a hole in the priest?

I'm on the fence, It was enjoyable and I like the cast but whether it's sustainable or not we'll see... It's all about the ongoing storylines, whatever they may be. If it turns into a show where he fixes a couple of celebs problems each week it will grow stale quickly.

I enjoyed it but didn't really like the casting of his wife. Frankly she just looked to homely for him so I didn't buy it. She also just seemed way to materialistic, although that has nothing to do with the actress.
