So, I finished this.
Liked the second half better than the first; Sacha Dhawan added a lot to the show, as did Ramon Rodriguez - both actors have some charisma, which all of the leads are sorely lacking (well, except for Wendham). Ward also became more watchable the less of a dick he became. And with the whole Bakuto storyline, there finally was some stuff happening.
I could've done without the cliffhanger ending, I have to say. What, can't any of these shows go out on a high note for once?
Anyway: Not as bad as I first thought, still not a great show. But if they want me watch a second season, they'd better make some changes.
