This is certainly true however this feels more like a straight-faced Mickey Spillane adaptation than the Hammett-esque whirlwind of season one. Again though, this is from a guy who's only seen two episodes.Mr Sausage wrote: ↑Fri Jan 25, 2019 5:45 pmThe show takes its cues and themes from noir, so I’m sure we’re meant to understand from the get-go these stories are about flawed, damaged antiheroes with only partial understandings who manage in spite of themselves to do something of value in the end, however qualified.
You and Big Ben are probably right that I'm passing judgment too soon and if there are reports that the fascistic police power on display is criticized or addressed later, then I'll come back around to it. It's just, based on what I saw, there was very little critique of these actions. You also hit on a good point regarding the characters of season 3, and one that addresses the flaws I've seen in both this season and the past one: they just aren't all that interesting. I'd have watched Harrelson and McConaughey ramble on at a bar for a full season, but nobody grabs me since that initial pairing.
