    The pilot is worth it, because Martin Scorsese. He directed, and it has a real 'Casino' vibe, and it is compelling. Good dialog, but a lot of the acting was weird. Bobby Canavale is good, and he could carry things, but there were lots of moments of him and other actors staring into space that made zero sense. Andrew Dice Clay gives a star turn.

    I never made it to the second ep, because Martin Scorsese, who was not that involved beyond the pilot. Had he helmed the entire series, I would have continued. And once Terrence Winter was booted, I knew I didn't want to continue.

    And neither did HBO, apparently, although they 'renewed' it early on. Shows how much that vote of confidence really means.

    I still highly recommend the pilot, but I would be surprised if it was still good beyond that.
