Anyone else interested in Tim roth's new gig?



I like tim roth, he's mostly nearly always watchable. The fish out of water means he doesn't have to put on an accent. A cockney kicking the shit out of people in an US is always better with the accent.

No takers for this? I watched the whole lot at once and it was enjoyable without being anything too new or dramatic. Roth is very watchable and the fish out of water element was pushed too much. There was some weird things in though. Like when Gagnon came to the house to kill the family, after they killed him, why did they bury the body? Why not report to the police, he had nothing on them?

Still, it was watchable with be memorable.

Watched first two. Episode one was fine, and Roth is excellent. However, when the 3 Stooges hit men arrived .......Christ, the acting was appalling, especially by the blonde guy and we gave up. Thought it might be like the Fargo hitmen ....black humour, but it was just plain awful.
