I've just finished ep 3, and so far, in my opinion, its mind-blowingly bad. I think y'all have already said everything I have to say about it, that the cast deserves a much better script (although I think a few people are terribly cast, namely Misty's partner, and, so far, Shades, even though I certainly loved him in Sons of Anarchy).
As for the soundtrack? I think most of it has been pretty badly done so far. Love that kind of music, but I think it's mostly made sequences pretty damned corny. And if I have to watch a person playing on stage at Cottonmouth's club every time there's an extended action sequence, I'm not going to be happy.
