Best of 2016
20 January 2016 | by modironakSee all my reviews

Completed watching two episodes of this show and I am all of praise for it. It contains features that excite me to go for a show like insider trading, corporate politics, courtroom scenes and complex characters. It is kind of on the same lines as Suits but an incremented version of it. The pilot starts with building of the two lead characters Chuck and Bobby while keeping up the tempo too. Between the two you cannot decide whom to root for as both have gray shades.

With the second episode it starts going deeper into past of their lives and what shaped them to being the way they are today. It is exciting to watch both of them go head to head to get better of each other. It is like a see-saw ride, you cannot predict what is in store for you.

If it goes the way it has started it can be one of the best shows of 2016. I would recommend to give a try to this show, you will not regret it.
