    Just watched this. I liked it. I don't know if I'll binge, but I can see me finishing it. The opening scene at the pool party really sucked me in.

    It has potential. I don't know if I buy Al Pacino as this old Jewish guy just yet though.

    I found it a little bit tedious, but have agreed to give it at least one more shot.

    It reminded me a bit of "The Boys", a young man recovering from tragedy ends up pairing up with a group of people fighting villains.

    I wonder if I made a mistake for starting an episode thread instead of a general discussion thread. I don’t know if there is going to be enough interest in this or not.

    I'm on episode 3. I like it. It has its implausible parts but so do most works of fiction. There's a lengthy scene in episode 1 which made me go blind but my eyes have recovered although not my psyche.

    Yeah, this probably should have been a series thread with spoilers but who knows.

    After I finish watching it I'll start a season/series thread. Or anyone else is welcome to also and let this one die.

    I ... kinda ... hate series threads, because you can't really participate without being spoiled on future episodes. I like to be able to participate as the episodes roll out, so I can discuss with other people who are at the same stage I am. I'm glad you created the episode thread as you did.

    As I stated on the "What are you watching via streaming" thread, the first 5 episodes sucked me in... the last 5 disappointed.

    How old did the camp survivor at the pool party look to you? Considering that the camps had been shut down 32 years before, she didn't look to me to be old enough to remember anyone from there.
