I am a great fan of American drama and had high hopes for this. Have now watched both season 1 and 2 and I am disappointed in the one-dimensional characters. The violence is gratuitous and there is no humour. This period in American history is covered well but it is hard to root for any of the characters; they show no vulnerability. People are not evil all the time. The Sopranos, a much superior show, had violence but the characters were real. To sum up I found it boring. At times interest level was raised when it became more political. It was as if the makers came up with a great idea but found it hard to execute it properly.
