I guess you can sign up for youtube's streaming service to see this. I haven't. It looks interesting. If youtube streaming becomes a thing with several good shoes, I might use my free 30 day trial to watch various things, but one show probably isn't enough. And I'm probably not going to pay for it, at any point. Too much streaming balkanization to make it worth while.

The first episode is free, so I watched that and, well I didn't really know what to expect. I honestly am still not sure what to expect.

The show is like super violent. It is also funny? I think? I don't know. I think I will try to watch the rest of the episodes because the first one was good, albeit a little overwhelming.

It is kind of like a cross between the US version of Shameless and Joe Dirt? I don't know. I will try and report back after I watch a little more.

It's like someone boiled down a bunch of S.E. Hinton and early Springsteen albums and put that through a filter built from the brutal violence of 'Preacher' and 'Banshee'. Less than two weeks after mentioning to my wife that I'm finding it harder and harder at 41 to connect with shows with teenage protagonists, I'm two episodes in and liking it a lot more than I thought I might.

I enjoyed this show, though it really doesn't pick up until the 5th episode, which tells Del's backstory. The other surprise to me was that the actress who plays Del (15) is actually 21. There's some surprising payoffs in the series, I enjoyed it for what it is. I hope they do a second season.

Surprised not more discussion of this here. Just finished Season 1 on Prime, and though it's gratuitously bloody/violent and kinda ends with a ??, it's a pretty darned entertaining show, with fin, well-developed characters across the generations. The sheriff from Brockport, MA, is a particularly unexpected treat.
