HBO show/miniseries, just wrapped up, it was really good and people who like good things should watch it.

I started watching it, but have not finished it. I really like it but had an issue with the seemingly quick transition with me main character - from dorky college tutor to tough prison gangster - in what felt like a very short amount of time.

Yeah he did seem to go from a nerd to smoking crack rather quickly. Although, it was established he was already into amphetamines soooo....

That didn't bother me quite so much as all his poor choices though, he's a real fucking idiot but the show was still pretty damn good.

I agree. It did feel rushed.

Did they ever establish exactly how lengthy a period of time the show transpired over though? I think there's room for some suspension of disbelief. Still, it certainly did move very quickly.

Much of it was born out of survival though. The stuff that seemed a bit farfeetched to me was the jailhouse tattoo nonsense.

I've noticed this with a lot of HBO shows and in this case, miniseries. They all move at a rapid fucking pace. it's quite bizarre. Other networks will milk their shows out to a fault, HBO is the exact opposite.

Absolutely agree, and why it didn't bother me much... it was just my one real complaint. I am assuming that he has been in jail for a lenghty amount of time only because we know, from this site's stories, how long the justice process takes. I just think they didn't do a great job in relaying that fact. But still, really like this show. It's no Mr. Robot, but still.
