You won't get past the opening
3 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

You won't get over the first few minutes of chapter one, violence and sex. First a killing than a scene with Rush and a much younger woman having sex. Is this the best that TV has to offer? I am very disappointed that Ron Howard would defame Einstein like this. I am left speechless and numb by the opening. I turned the show off. I cannot believe they are going forward with a second season.
