| Pretty good but comparing it to The Wire? Not really...
I think the story is good. It has good plot twists. I would say it's fairly unpredictable, new story. It has a few unnecessary sex scenes (no nudity). I am all for sex scenes, but some of these early on made no real sense, short of just being there to show off good looking women.

It mixes world of finance, corruption gangs with high tech finance. I think they mostly pulled it off. There were some moments where the directors could have said soul searching, devoid of dialogue drives for s2 or s3, but I guess it wasn't bad.

There is plenty to discover in s2, so Ill be watching. I think main leads played it well. Dialogue was good, blunt but good. Nothing too corny.

Edi Gathegi - pulled off cool, methodical 'dude' Adam Brody - was interesting. At first, I thought ht was too like a classic flawed hero, but he surprised me. Otmara Marrero - had the best one liner about living for a year with her boyfriend. I'll let you enjoy it. Martin Freeman - I almost feel like he was there for plot but not sure if I liked or could believe his persona.

Notable: Izzy's father, was done very well. He is there to support his family just for that, nothing else...

overall 8/10.
