The female detective? She hasn't done a ton yet, but she seems to be the "decent" character so far.

This.

I tried two episodes but just am not getting into it. Maybe because I am used to BB's mix of characters types.

We finally quit 3/4 of the way through this week's episode. Just much too dreary.

I really enjoyed this episode. So far I'm really liking this show. I know I must be enthralled with it because I started watching and suddenly I was surprised that it was already over. When that happens to me, I know I'm really into the show.

I like the fact that they're all dirty. I don't dislike any of them yet. I know that I don't want to live in Detroit, though.

So far I've learned that a blind pig is a speakeasy. I'm still trying to figure out what fried chicken has to do with prostitutes.

I really like it. I watched the last two episodes last night. Since I lost last weeks episode when my first Roamio Pro had issues. It was even more enjoyable watching two episodes back to back.

Watched the season finale this morning. Quite a surprising twist on how Agnew got out of the murder. Anyone else still watching?

Yes, i watched the season finale last night. It's certainly more enjoyable when watching two hours of it together instead of one. I just hope it gets renewed for a second season. If not, oh well, but I really enjoyed it.

I'm still watching. Thought the season finale was going to be a series finale until it all flushed out. Still digging it. I actually had a beer at the International before game three of the ALDS today. Not sure how to post a pic though.

I cancelled my SP and deleted a number of unwatched episodes several weeks ago. Just never caught my interest. Now I don't feel so bad about doing that.

I really liked the show but it's ratings were not very good. I wonder if there is any chance of Netflix or someone else picking it up?

I liked it well enough to want to see another season. But I'm not really sad it's gone.

The best thing about this show was the Saturday Night Live reference about not liking its chances of surviving the Breaking Bad finale. They got that right!

I "canceled" it after 3 episodes or so. I should have liked this one and looked forward to it when it was announced, but it had a "hollowness" to it that I was never able to get past.
