Second episode was OK as an hour-long horror/thriller. With that said, I still don't get it as a series. It's part procedural, part serial, and part horror movie.

I think it's going to be a bit much after a few weeks, too. I enjoy a violent show (hello, Sopranos?), but all good, violent shows pace themselves. They have humanity and family moments to balance the insanity (and also make the intense parts have more impact because of that). This seems like it's going to be non-stop twists, turns, and eerie music. I see bits of 666 Park Avenue, The Killing, and any cop procedural ever made.
