the show is good but I think they will lose a ton of their audience by making them wait a year and a half for the second season. people move on and forget about shows in less time than that.

I have just recently found the show, and it is fantastic. And to think, “What have I missed???” It is the best show on TV, hands down. It has a dark/exciting plot, that keeps me glued to the TV, and I refuse to leave while it is on. It is a winner!!!

my husband & I absolutely love the show. Its gritty, exciting. raw & off the grid. It even has the kind of law enforcement that is needed today” their hand aren’t tied by political liberals afraid to to hurt someones feelings. Go in & kick some ass, take out the real bad guys!
