So, staying home and not feeling too well yesterday, I watched episodes 2-10 all in a row.
Overall I like this show. Vera Farmiga is mesmerizing. Total borderline personality disorder. So incredibly sexycrazy.
I think Charlie Bucket is growing into the role, getting better by the episode. His range of emotions, especially the quiet desperation and simmering fury, is nicely done.
I was hoping for a little more with the teacher. Hopefully they'll go back to it beginning next season.
Emma is a delightful, sad character.
Dylan...the product of incest between Norma and her brother? That could be true...it would explain her dislike of him from the beginning (at least from his point of view).
The Chinese sex slave plot seemed weird and unfocused to me. I think it was a little thin.
Overall, I'd give it a solid B
, and will watch next season.
