I watched the first of the 8 first-season episodes, and I was impressed.
It's a little slow-paced, going in, but extremely character-driven, with Sissy Spacek and J.K. Simmons leading the cast.

I enjoyed first episode. Agree on the pace, however the leads are wonderful actors, so I sort of didn't mind.

I was happy to see the second episode expand beyond an elderly couple circling the drain and dealing with an obnoxious neighbor.
I'm assuming that the chapel cellar in Argentina is somehow connected to the Yorks' star gazing chamber. I have no explanation for Jude.
If he is a native of the environmentally hostile alien planet on the other side of the Yorks' chamber doorway, how does he know English? Who's tracking him? The threatening dude who showed up in Argentina?

Good series, although far too short.
Eight episodes raised more questions than provided answers. I hope Amazon plans to extend the show.

how did they find out Byron forged Franklin's signature?
I stopped watching after episode 4 and don't know if it was 'explained' later. I assumed it was because at the town-hall of a small town where everyone would know long-time citizen Franklin - and recognize his signature - would also know the likelihood of him supporting an newcomer like Byron. Not.

I enjoyed the first season a lot. It was very different than almost all S.F. on T.V. but more than that it was very different from almost everything else on T.V. I enjoyed the pace, but my feeling is that season two is going to be much more frenetic, much more violent, and a lot less enjoyable.
