I don't normally agree with ANN, but in this case they are on point
>I wasn't laughing at the show, but the sheer number of characters, each one announcing something that'll probably be tragically ironic or ironically tragic later on, the absolutely relentless tension-building creepy string music that accompanies even mundane scenes… it seemed like this show wasn't trying to be the best thriller, it was trying to be THE MOST THRILLER YOU'VE EVER SEEN, which I have to tell you, sounds fantastic. I want to see wherever this barely-held-together pile of ambition goes. Bring it on! I'll just pop open a spreadsheet to keep track of these names.
This is very much a "strap yourself in and enjoy the ride because this shit's gonna get crazy" kind of first episode
