Low Winter Sun as the title suggest is being touted as the heir apparent to the greatest TV show of all time. Even though I didn't watch the broadcast of the Pilot, I can't relate to the negativity of the viewers toward the show before it aired. I just think it's foolish on the part of AMC to make this series carry the weight of replacing Breaking Bad, just as the review suggest. I did however just watched the first episode via AMC YouTube channel. More on the episode in question........

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.

I think I watched the second episode and it was so slow and dull that I never made it all the way to the end and just gave up on the series after that. No wonder it got canned.
