    I liked this enough while I was watching it --- the cast is really quite good and the scenarios are grotesquely funny --- but maaaaan it goes nowhere. Worse, the fucking thing ends on [
    ]

    The characters are too one-dimensional and that's the show's biggest weakness. Everything there is to know about these people in this world we learn in the first 20 minutes of the first episode. 8 episodes and some 7 hours later, they're exactly the same.

    I haven't got past the first episode but talk about grabbing your attention. I'm not in the market for a new TV series right now, so I think it's something I'll let my wife watch without me.

    The actors carry this quite well, often thru the weaker parts, and it can be a lot of fun. I look forward to seeing what they do with a second season. Dude who played Homelander was dynamite. The corporate and religious angles, while not particularly deep, are still pretty damn funny.
