Clive Owen, interesting. Will not watch just yet, but I'd be happy if someone could give it a quick review.

I remember when Clive Owen was a big deal and then suddenly wasn't.

Personally, I've always liked him. Children of Men is a great movie.

The pilot was entertaining enough but it's literally House: 1900s.

I watched a few minutes of this. I got to this part and had enough. Not my cup of tea.

Agreed. I thought he was going to be some mad, twisted, sadistic, doctor from the previews. I don't know if I'll watch a whole lot more if this is all there is.

Yeah, I see the House comparisons. But this show definitely seems it will focus a lot more on the social changes and racial tensions of early 20th century. House was very formulaic, this show should be a lot more unpredictable. I'm excited to see what Soderbergh can do, I think he's perfectly suited for TV (Traffic for example could've been a great miniseries).

From the pilot I did not expect to enjoy this show as much as I have. But it's been really, really good so far.

Just watched the pilot last night, immediately gathered the rest of the episodes. Really enjoyed it and hope it gets even better.

The cinematography in this show is very understated, a lot of very beautiful scenes.

Was thinking the music reminds of the mass effect video game series music

Finally got around to watching the season finale recently and I found it to be rushed somewhat. All in all though the season was phenomenal and definitely my favorite new show this fall although I don't believe there's much else comparable. Looking forward to season two.

Watched season 1 a couple months ago and thought it was great. Out of the new shows for 2014, I'd rank this 3rd behind S1 of True Detective and S1 of Fargo.

Really enjoyed the first season. Will likely have to rewatch some of it though since I forgot a lot of the storylines

Great to see that there's a second season coming.
