    I agree that this show is quite crappy…but I will keep watching to see if it gets better.

    It’s funny, before last series season it was the one that sound better on paper out of the three killers shows, bates motel, hannibal and this one, and it end actually being the worst one by far.

    And this actress….Zero Hour…UGH! last years worst show tied with Cult

    Why does anyone watch this piece of shit? It’s TERRIBLE.

      Terrible is a bit extreme. I like it because it’s dumb fun and I like Bacon vs. Purefoy.

    re: “Connie Nielsen (Devil’s Advocate, Soldier) as a romantic interest for Bacon,”

    That doesn’t bode well for Natalie Zea’s character. One could say “duh” since she got stabbed by nutso neighbour. However, Bacon got stabbed too, and he’s coming back. As is, apparently, James Purefoy who got blowed-up real good (but, I guess, not good enough).

    • Tikkanen

      Yeah, she’s a goner, but in a show like this, she could always show up in the many flashbacks. I’ll miss Roderick who I found deadly and amusing.
