It was damn near incomprehensible...not only the dialog, but the barely glimmering motivations of the main characters except the lowlives chained to the track with their gambling addiction. I know it was a pilot and it has a great cast, but I hope Milch doesn't spend 6 or 8 episodes of mystical character development before he attacks a plot. Deadwood was centered in Deadwood's semi-history and illuminating characters. John in Cincinnati was a total mess. Hopefully, this leans a bit more linear so that folks don't give up on it.
I don't lurk as much as I used to and I NEVER listen. Comes from being old and cynical.
