Enjoyed the first ep. I think it hooked me, I'm looking forward to the other 2. Never read the book so I'm going in pretty fresh as far as the story. Cool to see Peggy Olson outside of the Mad Men context, she's good in this. The show looks gorgeous too.

This was a really good season, extremely well realized in almost every way. I think it only dipped in quality when they tried to expand the narrative by adding to the source material (the Noah episode) or inject more overt thriller elements; and that stuff wasn't even bad it just diluted the intensity of the central story a little bit. Kinda strange to be hyped for a wildly depressing show that's all about state-sponsored rape and torture but here we are.

i gave up halfway through first ep. i get why they hired peggy to act opp/repressed, but she couldn't handle the role imo. in the intro scene when they take her kid "no, give her back. " .........

got the new xps 15 with 4K screen and need something to watch on it tho..
