I've watched episode 1 and I still haven't figured out how I feel about it - but that was also the case with OZARK.
It's more slick than BREAKING BAD because both the humour and poignancy looks more manipulative and it kinda borders on dramedy.
Even the premise itself appears to be based on semi-comical convenience and I think it takes some of the darkness out of it.
Also, since the title character chooses his destiny it doesn't feel as if the story spirals out of control the way it happened in FARGO.
I love impostor stories but here it doesn't seem like a big deal whether he's going to be exposed or not.
I'll watch two more episodes to see if the "addiction" starts to kick in.
