Does it pick up any? I've watched the first two episodes and, honestly, I've nodded off more than once in each of them. (Today's inadvertent nap might have had something to do with the steep hike Mr. Mouse and I did and the blistering 95F heat, but still.) I love a good conspiracy story as much as anybody, but the pace is going to pick up, right? It's got to. Plus I'm not connecting with any of these characters - yes, I realize they're all supposed to be odd ducks - and some of the acting seems strangely stilted.
It was nice to see Quentin Travers for all of 45 seconds (Buffy!). And I'm hopeful based on AMC's recent original television track record. But I am starting to wonder if I'm going to be more of a Walking Dead person than a Rubicon person. You won't hold it against me if it turns out that way, will you?
