I like the Tilt theme music and open a little too much.
I’m pleasantly disappionted the show hasn’t suck as much as I really thought it might. I think it helps they have no illusions about saving anything for a second season – though just watching the beginning of Today’s episode, I’m thinking they’ve maybe flipped on that – or trying to cram even more in.
(In other neat commerical art work, the hype video/motiff for No Way Out is quite good.)
Edit: Yea. That was slightly awesome.
I was figuring the poker game was going to happen – bringing up the World Championship and reminding us of it as the real climax gave it away. (I’m sure figured out they had to have more than a six show run would’ve illuminated me too.)
I just presumed they’d be interrupted by unknown drug dealer person (and wow, could that casting job make or break a couple of episodes) – I didn’t figure it all coming apart like that.
I still stand by one and out, because the show revolves around
1) Michael Madsen
2) out of place soliloquies by theoretically truculent poker players
3) guy solving murder in a tangential storyline
3′s gonna be over after this season, but I think everyone might be fine with that. 2 obviously will not be.
But how can you have Everest around as a guy who got beat? Can you give this a satisfying ending without the logical conclusion of someone (Eddie, duh) busting him out of Vegas?
Because that’d be pretty good. He is the Show.
