Isn’t that the theme of America in general?
most of the themes of these US things are:

- dickheads running about the shop, being ever so dickheady.
- the justice system doesn't work.
- fucking PC bullshit! Why can't I do the thing! Regulations?! Kiss my ass!
- Reluctant vigilantes.
- HUGE INSULT TO THE HONOUR OF THE VIGILANTE!
- thats_too_much.giff Looks like guns are back on the menu boys!
- Guns
- Seven shades of scuttery shite getting kicked. Grovelling. Witty rejoinders.
- Stupid justice system grudgingly accepts vigilantes are just, like, the *best*.
- tits.

I'm back on board. Didn't like the first two episodes but the third and fourth were great and reminded me of the what it was that made The Leftovers so great. Fantastic use of music and editing and a sense of not having a clue what's coming next.

Episode 6 is a showstopper
Hard to overstate what Cord Jefferson did there.
Took the Hooded Justice character – never named/outed in the book - made him fucking black! Then tied it into all the injustices black people have faced and made a hero out of a fucking lynching victim.

In essence molded this character's story into what this show is about.
And made it look effortless – all while being done in an episode that’s basically one long acid trip (or an extra dark Black Mirror episode).
I’d say he deserved an Emmy, but I don’t think an Emmy’s enough.

The eye makeup with Reeves and Sister Night was a nice touch.
And the actress playing the wife was amazing.




Sorry to blather on. I am just high as fuck on this show right now.

good interview, but how many times can they get the name of the show wrong? (spoiler: a whole fucking lot of times)
