This show suffers from the same ailment that so many shows do. Really inventive, promising first season but subsequent seasons really fizzle and die. I think HBO puts a lot of money into people with great ideas who just cannot follow up or sustain these ideas for the medium or long term. True Detective was the same. The Outsider managed to cram this dynamic into one incredibly disappointing season! Started off brilliant, ended with a boring drawn out whimper. Game of Thrones was brilliant for four straight seasons, but went downhill from there. The last couple seasons were embarrassing. I get that the source material/outlines were already written, but those guys just blew the landing. I agree that Vince Gillian has avoided this with Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. The former was perfect, and the latter keeps getting exponentially better with each season. I hope they can shoot six before everybody in the prequel is geriatric compared to their first appearances in BB!
