Having finished the series tonight, I agree on both counts. As for the acting, it could be a combination of actors that haven't done anything in years and probably low-cost directing or a shoe string budget that didn't allow for a terribly large amount of takes. Either way, Daniel and Johnny were pretty poorly acted, however I actually dug the acting from the kids especially Miguel and Robby. Acting aside, it was still such a fun show! That scene of them singing along to REO Speedwagon in the Firebird was so damn surreal it was awesome.Nothing is as painful as watching him try to be the teacher. He feels like a corporate video presentation of being a teacher. :lol:
Wait until you get on the other side of episode ten, since I think Miguel is the character that shows the most depth, change, and complication of the entire series.
Hawk is quite obviously the "Get him a body bag!" character of the series. :lol:
Finished season 1 last night. Hated the ending, for all the right reasons - moral ambiguity through the roof, the blurring of good and bad itself becomes blurred, and you don't like any of what you see happening. It sucks... But, it all makes sense and feels "real," and I can't argue for any of it.
That's cool to hear. I enjoyed Season 2, but I thought it was a big drop in quality from Season 1. I added Season 3 to my list earlier today, but I haven't had a chance to watch it yet. Hopefully sometime this week. The trailers definitely look way darker, which is intriguing.Season 2 didn't do it for me until the very end. It lost a lot of what made it fun in the first season. Season 3 was way darker, but I enjoyed the hell out of it. The acting of Machio and Zabka have definitely gotten better.
