Straight-to-series, and it’s easy to see why. This is one of the best pilots this season. Great chemistry between the two leads. A strong central mystery around corruption. These strengths aside, the pilot’s biggest win is its tone. There’s an undercurrent of dread that runs through all 63 pages of it. It’s volatile. On edge. I can’t wait to watch this.
