    This sounds excellent; I’ll try on the strength of the cast alone. Plus since it’ll be on Netflix, I can binge watch (per House of Cards)!

  2. Et al says:

    Are they ever going to name this darn show?

    Will be he be sober?

  4. Bryce says:

    I can’t wait for this show, but they need to title it already! I’m sick of reading TVL headlines that read “Netflix Drama from Damages Team”

  5. Miranda says:

    Can we just call it Kyle Chandler’s new joint for now?

  6. Jeff says:

    This is a fantastic cast. Netflix has really been able to bring in some top talent. I hope this is as good as House of Cards and OITNB.

    They had me at Kyle Chandler.

    Adsense is actually a really great program for those who maintain blogs, as blogs get updated all the time and
    the Adsense possibilities are almost limitless.
    These pre-computed numbers, hold on in a very giant information bank for millions or URLs on the net.
    And then on March 20, the world’s largest paid private blog network – BMR – announced
    that its vast network had been almost entirely de-indexed by
    Google, causing chaos in the internet marketing industries.
