    Biggest gripe is that such a talented cast of actors was completely wasted due to the inept execution (writing and direction). I've skimmed through the book by McGeevy and it actually seems like it might work on the page, tone-wise; but this show tries to pretend to be edgy and dramatically meaningful like others of its kind (X-Files, Fringe, Walking Dead, etc) while never finding a voice that allows itself to be taken seriously or a way to bring real depth to its characters. It is consistently considered the worst of the NetFlix offerings, as bad as the others are good, and it was one of my largest disappointments of the season.

    I probably wouldn't be so pissed at the waste, if I hadn't seen some rich potential here in ideas and cast.
    I can't put my finger on what is wrong about your review. My argument would be along the lines of the complaints you're having as enhancing ideas of the show (sexuality being one) rather than depreciating them.

    Let's get down to the core here: Why do you need to tell me what is wrong about my opinion? Should I be wasting my time telling you what is wrong about your opinion? Opinions are opinions. You can have one; so can I.

    I didn't like the show, despite coming in WANTING to like it. And I explained why in much more detail than you have.

    You liked it. More power to you, I'm glad you could salvage something out of this mess. If I could have liked it, it would have made the memories far sweeter.

    I don't get why you're being so defensive.

    Dude:

    1. This thread is SUPPOSED to be about rants. Read the title. It's not a "discuss the merits" thread. The post was a rant. And there are various rants I don't agree with but try to not argue with, because that's not the point of the thread.

    2. The only rebuttal you offered (the wig) was entirely wrong -- did you figure out which "wig" all the reviewers WERE referring to yet?

    3. When I gave you a longer reply + a link to my full review of the series, you only said, "Well, I just think you're wrong because... well, I feel like you're wrong even if I can't put my finger on it." Seriously?

    I'm not defensive, just annoyed.
