Just finished season 1.This (imo) has been one of my more favorite shows to have come out in recent years. Love the historical angle on it. Even down to where the inmates are located in prison (it's accurate)
I like how the young detective Holden starts off as very impressionable, and slowly gains a huge ego and watches it crumble before him. It comes down hard.
I think that is a metaphor to how the serial killers work as well, the more they get away with the more confident they get, til their empire blows up in their face. Their cockiness is what gets them caught at times, and we can see the same characteristics in Holden.
great so far, hopefully season 2 can come out sooner than later

Well I started this show today and took in the first four episodes. The acting isn't always as good as I'd like it to be but god damn it's a great story. Totally hooked and can't wait to see how this plays out moving forward.
I watched this over 4 sittings - was awesome stuff. I recommend breaking it up and not binging as not everything is laid out in front of you. It felt like a really cool combination of Se7en and Zodiac for me.
