recommendation: Tier 0* (0.9)
Shot with the RED Epic Dragon camera, it has a very clean and sharp image; there is no grain but not in a distracting way. Details in the landscape, fabrics, and faces are well represented. Colors are strong as well; lots of primaries in clothing, vegetation, and Christmas lights. The real strength of the presentation is the black levels and strong contrast. I was blown away with the deep, inky blacks in every episode but especially the last two that take place primarily at night. Black clothing, guns, the night sky, and everything else just look great and show great depth of shadow detail; the night sky disappears against the black bars (image is 2.00:1).
I enjoyed this season and hope they put out season 2 on disc because I don't subscribe to Netflix.

I find your lack of schadenfreude disturbing.
