Digging that Harrison is a bit shady/ anti-authoritarian, even if just teenager shady and general gen z anti-authoritarian. Doubly liking that Harrison is smart, and curious - and after the animal feeding scene, whether he might snuff Dex.

Will be interesting to see if it holds, or backlashes... and whether Dex finds himself in a situation to hang his kid out in the wind.

I'm really liking this kid (Jack Alcott), and the performance.

I'm totally ok if Jennifer Carpenter takes over as Dex's conscience.

Clancy Brown!

lol, I think I might like the current writing staff; the drone (presumably relatively expensive) and the poorly trained personnel to operate it. A lighter take on the militarization/ "Defense" style spending given to law enforcement in the US. And how Dex immediately sees the angle (over-reliance on tech - without verification).

Doubling down on the writers; the native (First Nations - but not, since this is in the US) spokesperson throwing missing women vs. missing rich white scion in Angela's face.

I think that this revival is worth giving a shot.

Dex is getting play-ed?

I was a bit uncertain after the first episode, but the second has gotten my interest. I can't quite pinpoint why, though. Maybe it was apprehension about the sort of character Harrison might have turned out to be. So far, not too bad.

I was mildly annoyed that he damaged the door at the camp to get inside, though. That lock could have been popped in a second with a simple shim. No need to rip the hasp from the door.
