I'm starting to feel like it's too caricature-ish. Like every single character has to be a stereotype of something because there's no time to fit much character development in 6 episodes. Off the top of my head, we have:

- Captain America - Rick
- Raging white power racists
- A character named "T-dog" (really?!?)
- Wifebeating misogynist scumbag
- Timid wife with mournful eyes who loves the scumbag
Bah, I still like the show, I'm just finding it more comic-ky than I expected. The pilot has been the best episode so far - it really kept you on the edge of your seat.
Also, why would he saw off his hand when a hacksaw could have easily sawed through the chain on his handcuffs?
