I just burned through this in a night. It's very Sam Esmail, and very good.

This kind of show highlights how much you can do simply with dialogue - nobody getting killed, no car chases, no gunfights... just people talking. And yet it still manages to be gripping and tense, it sucks you in and keeps you hooked.

Watched it all as well and loved it. Episodes are only 30 minutes so its a quick watch, but one well worth your time

I like the mystery. But seems to me that it's just a dumb contractor plot to rape money from the government...

So far. I hope it gets more interesting.

This wouldn't work in the normal ~60min episode length, it would just burn out as it's turned up to 10 non-stop. It's on old fashioned political type story redone for today and I think it was done pretty well. At least in what I've watched so far. Between this and Patriot I've been watching more Amazon than I probably ever have so I feel like I'm finally getting my monies worth aside from the shipping.

This was pretty good. I wasn't going to watch it due to Roberts, but gave it a go based on the feedback here, and I'm glad I did.
