Personal Thoughts

I love this TV series. I am currently part way through season two. The storyline is excellent. The acting is great. I like how each episode adds to the big picture narrative while still leaving us wanting more. In the first season there were a number of film techniques used to highlight contrasting ideas. I found these moments rather impressive.
