well plotted fiction. keeps moving, addictive -- a lot like the good wife for keeping lots of strands going to keep things moving.
some good acting. what i get a kick out of is how the young American physics genius who is supposedly in the same genius league as Heisenberg and Bohr is played by a gorgeous guy with the necessary matinee idol looks but who comes off as not very smart! Which is harder to pull off: an actor of average intelligence playing a genius or a super smart actor playing dumb?

Up front confession: I only watched one episode. But I hated it, immediately. Everyone goes on about how this is a 'WGN' series. Lions Gate produces this and they usually make good stuff. But I didn't want a soap opera and I am seriously sick and tired of 7-8 minutes of credits at the beginning of the series. All those egos want their credit. I just want to watch the frickin series. 'The Good Wife' is the worst for this. They have credits going as far as 15 minutes into a 43 minute show. I'm REALLY starting to hate this world. Somebody drop a water balloon on the people who insist on 7-15 minutes worth of credits!!!!!!

This series is amazing! I am so pleased with the writing, actors, set and the costumes! It floors me that this series isn't on HBO or Cinemax because the quality of every aspect is phenomenal! I am looking forward to Season 2 to start in Oct 2015!

Fictional account of The Manhattan Project --
The scientists were featured as political egomaniacs with wives playing follow-your-man to the dusty isolated community of nerds, all under constant watch by the army sentries and intelligence spooks. The ending was a cliff hanger with fate of the central character left hanging, literally, for season two.
