A lot of overacting imo...like a ton...but the premise is really interesting and the characters themselves are really intriguing but I just hope the acting is toned down, cause there is a lot of good talent in this.

Opening scene is Jax Teller's wife pissing on Paul Giamatti. LOL

I'll watch this.

This show suffers from the same ailment that hurt The Newsroom. The actors are simply trying too hard. It works for Paul Giamatti (because he always does it) and to a lesser extent for Damian Lewis. Everyone else just isn't believable, and it's hurting the show. I like the plot, and am going to continue to watch, I just wish some of these secondary roles would tone it down a bit.

Im quickly losing interest. Not only is the overacting getting worse by EVERYONE, the story (which I thought would be interesting) is actually not....

His wife is fucking awful. She was so hot in Entourage.

Yeah, she's the worst in the show. I like Paul Giamatti though.

Damien Lewis' English accent is hard to hide when he is trying to get loud :rofl:

Kind of a lackluster finale. The show is so ridiculous but I enjoy it.

I hope the actors will have grown into their characters. Things got better as season 1 went on, but the overall feeling was that the acting was too forced.
