    Really enjoyed it.

    Eye candy, Alexander Skarsgård, saved the damsel as he wrestled his inner demons. The leading lady. Florence Pugh, played an impressively smart and independent woman. I like the actress' Kathleen Turner-like deep voice and her >size 6 frame. The character smoked but I hope the actress didn’t also develop her voice via cigarettes.

    The 6-episode series wrapped up nicely. There was a moment where I thought they were going to make it like the movies Notorious and Mission Impossible 2 where the woman goes undercover to romance the bad guy. So glad that didn’t happen but I wouldn’t mind if they green-light a second season.

    micheal shannon was impressive, too, very convincing, but it felt to me that florence pugh carried the series, she was incredible - i can't wait to see what she does next. i have lady macbeth recorded, and haven't gotten around to watching it yet, now i'm really looking forward to it.

    there's an encore marathon saturday morning for those who missed it.

    I thought it was very good. Much better than the Diane Keaton movie. I remember falling asleep during that.

    Skaargard's character was really good as was Michael Shannon's. The girl was just meh IMHO.

    I'm having a hard time getting through the first airing (two-hour premiere). I don't think I'm going to continue. Too bad as I really liked The Night Manager.

    the first two eps were the longest for me, but the pace definitely picks up in the final four.

    I forced myself to finish 5 and 6 yesterday in hopes I would understand. I failed.

    Just finished it, thought it was excellent, especially the last couple of eps when she was undercover. The tension in the final scene in the bedroom when Khalil realizes what's going on was incredible. The acting was great all around, especially Pugh, playing a very complex role.

    I liked it also but - it was however very hard to get into. It took a while before it hooked me in. I watch quite a bit of it in speed mode with the closed captioning on. I thought all 3 leads were great.

    I really liked it too. And I thought all the leads were very good. It actually took me at least a half hour before I realized that Marty was Michael Shannon (who I really liked in Boardwalk Empire and other things I've seen him in.
