Seems the turn in the Dark tower movie has sent him away on a dark path.... I hope he has not forgotten the face of his father with this one...

Watched the first episode last night. It's cliched as hell and ridiculously predictable, but it's still a lot of fun. Great watching Elba coast through his role.

Just starting this. Piper Perabo looks great.

I am on I believe episode 3 and I like it enough to finish the series. It is still an oddball project for Elba to be involved in but hey I have seen and enjoyed much worse on Netflix. I did not realize that Piper Perabo was in the show so that turned out to be a major plus.

Finished it up last night. The ending didn't resolve much but it was otherwise enjoyable.
