The very first minute you already see who the main character is and what he's capable of. He also breaks character which is a first for drama tv. This show is a winner!
Not really, Boston Legal used to do it all the time, House of Lies also does it every episode with Don Cheadle oh and the original series did it all the time.
Anyways I'm two episodes in and it's pretty good I don't think it lives up to the British series yet. Nigel Hawthorne was such a great lead and you felt like everything that was happening was his last chance.
