I to get into the story, but after watching disc 1, I knew I couldn't take any more. I had the feeling that it would be the same thing over and over again.

One episode was all I could stomach.
Wallowing in moral muck, crime, drugs and bullying. A weird, off-putting family setup with psycho uncles, "my eyes are up here" bad mama, and a watching and learning ninny orphan (who permanently stands while biking because his seat is set too low).

Ellen Barkin so good!

I wasn't too sure about this at first. I was intrigued by the description and I am a big fan of Ellen Barkin but I was afraid of being disappointed. It would all depend on how they approached the story I thought.
It was better than I expected however. Elements of it reminded me of "Breaking Bad" and "The Sopranos" yet it maintained it's own uniqueness. It is definitely dark but exciting and also sometimes funny. That is a good thing. Once you are into it and the story and characters have their tentacles into you it may not be possible to stop watching. Give it a try and see what you think.
Note: it was renewed for a second season and also has a connection to the orginal movie of the same name (characters and story based in Australia in that case) from a couple of years ago.

I watched the original Australian film and the acting is superb, Mom is very scary. This American version is a poor second.

Wonderful crime family drama. Each of the 6 main characters have a developed personality and support a subplot distinct from but related to the main story line. No excessive sex, violence, gunplay although all are present. Ms Barkin is great as the sexy 60 grandmother who runs the clan. While there is not a laugh or a smile in the whole film I was entertained.

Intense, good drama and action packed in each episode. It's like the original Point Break movie. This TV series is better than the Australian's 'Animal Kingdom'. The TV's pilot episode covers the entire movie. Actors have good chemistry with one another. You can still watch it on Xfinity On Demand for Season 1.
