    High production values, low interest

    Hope it gets better

    Seems fair. But I love this setting for cop dramas so I will continue ...

    Pretty weak opener, but was intrigued enough to keep watching and see if it gets better. Certainly has potential

    Thing about weak HBO shows, as already alluded too, is they still have tremendous production value and quality actors. So that will always keep me bought in on Sunday nights to an extent ...

    2nd ep was good. Show is getting deeper. I’m curious what the foreshadowing between the preacher chick and Emily was all about.

    yeah i'm getting in to it. i also was off on the era apparently (post WWI when i thought it was post WWII). preacher chick will be an interesting character, and in general the evangelism of that time period with all the props and costumes is both appealing on TV and a bit freaky to watch. also like the black policeman and it'll be good incorporate some racial dynamicsof the time in to the show ...

    Guess I need to watch the next to last scene again? I guess the Yale lawyer has some sort of slick way to get Perry prepped for the Bar exam?

    Not sure if it was slick or just that the exam hasn't been adjusted in years and he's helping him to take out the current DA basically. The slick part was Della forging JBs signature so Perry could sit for the exam ...

    The show doesn’t suck. In this genre: TD s1 >> Perry Mason >> TD s3 >> TD s2

    Idk why I kept watching this show. I guess Sunday night programming is meh. I can’t really point to anything I specifically enjoyed about it but I’ll give season two another go.
