Pilot



Okay, for a few weeks all I have been hearing about the upcoming series Low Winter Sun was how the show would continue in the tradition of Breaking Bad by focusing on a morally corrupt person, who just so happens to be a Cop. The very first scene of the Pilot shows Frank (Mark Strong) and another cop, Joe (Lennie James) killing and then disposing the body of a third person. The third person in question also happens to be a cop from their department, more to the point, Joe's partner. They set the bar pretty high in establishing both characters. Frank seems to have somewhat of a conscience and some guilt while Joe is of the mindset "better him than me" as Internal Affairs is closing in on the Department looking for evidence of corrupt cops on the take.

I actually liked the episode and there is definitely plenty to work with. I just hope that AMC gives the series a chance and doesn't balk at the realizations that this series will not bring in the same numbers that Breaking Bad does. Once in a lifetime show that is going to be nearly impossible to replicate, especially with Low Winter Sun.
