Loco Your Honor - Bryan Cranston

Has anyone else watched this?

I'm 3 episodes in and I'm really struggling to stick with it. My other half stoped after episode 2 but was prepared to stop after the first episode. I convinced her to give it one more episode.

From the start it just seems to be (supposedly) intelligent people making very stupid and bad decisions. Almost every scene or every other scene.

I've never felt so frustrated while watching a TV show.

This looked really interesting from the trailer and I like Bryan Cranston. The production levels are good, it's well filmed, the acting is good, etc, but you can see everything coming a mile off and it feels very lazy and/or stupid.

I'm sure I'll stick with it but I have zero sympathy for the father and son mainly due to their actions.

I'm 7 episodes in and while it's not particularly grabbed me (hence still three episodes to go) it's solid enough.

I finished it. It's not bad. It moves well and intrigues just enough to keep you hooked, mainly in part to Cranston's ever reliable performance and high production values, but I felt it lost steam down the final stretch, especially the finale, which just didn't land for me.

I watched the whole series and overall I liked it. I do agree though with the above comments. It’s slow in some places and then shocks you in others!
It’s probably best done as a binge effort! I loved Bryan Cranston’s portrayal of the judge stuck between a rock and a hard place! I couldn’t get myself to sympathise with the son though sadly.

If you're not liking it now, it doesn't improve!

Very inconsistent, and some really daft moments alongside some excellence. Worst for me was that Cranston was a constant reminder of how this falls way short of Breaking Bad.

I'm with you Psycho, I gave up on this part way through episode 3. Didn't care about any of the characters, could guess where it was going. It reminded me of Breaking Bad when Walt comes up with stupid explanations to Skylar.

Don’t bother. Ending is dire and fails to tie up a load of plot points.

I finished this on Sunday.

Still so many stupid/questionable decisions made and, as mentioned above, it ended with some plot points not tied up, i.e.


Also, a lot of plot holes:

Aah yes, that rings a bell now, although I don't think I'd managed to piece those separate bits together. Didn't seem to add much or go anywhere, though. And doesn't really make much sense as to how she fell for him (2 different worlds, she had all to lose).

Maybe suggests she was offed deliberately? I wonder if this was the same in the original Israeli version, or whether there was more to it.

I was intrigued about the Israeli version and how/if that was any different (better).
