I can't believe there isn't a thread for this show -- it's amazing.
And actually, the entire show is amazing. The actors seem incredibly well cast (particularly the young Bobby, who is totally compelling to watch) and the characters are well developed, and nuanced. The tension between the family members is particularly believable!
I also love the premise of this show -- sort of like a Smallville, where we know the future of the two characters, and we watch as they develop into the public personas that are their destinies.
Is anyone else watching this show? I know it's critically acclaimed and it has been picked up for the entire season, but it seems like no one is talking about it and the viewership has only been mediocre.
I, for one, am going to be a loyal viewer -- It's like My So Called West Wing, and I looOooove it!
