There is truth in your comment but I still enjoyed the first three episodes very much. In fact I was almost hynotized by the show which is showing on Israeli cable about a day after the USA. We were completely captured by the script and performances by a very talented cast with exceptional acting by McConaughey and Harrelson. It isn't true to claim that the character of Harrelson's betrayed wife fits into the category of "dead, naked, a hooker, a willing sex toy or a coffee getter"? She may be a housewife but she is a recognisable character and is beautifully played. This isn't easy viewing especially for lovers of simpler formats of TV shows but well worth the trouble.
