    Seems like it could get really boring if they dont have some good plot twists

    Liev Schreiber does most of the narration for HBO sports documentaries. He was miscast as Sabretooth in Wolverine: Origins though.

    I watched it. I had high expectations because I like Liev Schreiber, who was excellent, btw. However, the show was awful. Stupid dialogue, bad acting. Too many things happening to him.
    The guy who played the sleazy producer who wanted Ray to follow his girlfriend was particularly bad. Comically so. And what's up with Steven Bauers accent? What the hell is that? And I got a good laugh when Elliot Gould was splashing around in the ocean like a zombie. Funny stuff.
    I know it was introduction to all the characters, but it was too much, too soon. I used to watch soap operas with my mom, and this was just like a typical bad soap opera with typical bad soap opera acting. :hat:

    I thought it was good, I love the whole premise of the show and if it continues like the pilot, it will be a keeper.

    I liked it. Nibbler poster may put too much thought into a tv show.
