| If only the US would attempt series programming like the UK
It's working on many levels, especially with premium cable, Netflix and now Amazon Prime. The issues I have with American Crime after three episodes is, it's far too slow and the commercials break any continuity you start building. If this is planned at 11 episodes the Brits could do it in 5 and it would be a better, perhaps even a grittier program. The special effects (if you can call them this) are more in line with high school, college film editing courses.. distracting; I know they're using it to hide curse words because it's broadcast but use them or stick with broadcast standards. So far it's too drawn out and had the opportunity of coming close to HBO's True Detective. I'm disappointed. When you see as many commercials promoting the upcoming show and twice as many after it's started it's not a good sign. This pilot season will be it's only season. Unless it picks up and as viewers we can connect more with the characters where you become interested to the point of wanting to advocate for them all is lost. Producers only need look at Luther, Broadchurch, Vera, etc., it can be done. Why those shows are not shown here without being Americanized like Broadchurch being remade into Gracepoint; it was nowhere near as good and was made several episodes longer which did not at all make it a better viewing experience.
