The bad ratings were BS. This show is very entertaining. The fact that every critic has a favorite role/role-player means they are all doing what they are supposed to. There is a pace about it. However, this is not meant to be an action packed, car chasing, kill everything that breathes series. It's a well though out, character based, in a scary situation story. There is scary stuff that happens here. However, the Cartel hired a smart numbers man that, maybe in the end, will be their demise or might even escape. The problem is his situation touches everyone he touches -sometimes directly and sometimes indirectly. I thought in the last episode he was going to have a way out, but I think sh$t just got deeper. If Jason Bateman does anymore shows like this-I'm watching.
