Looks interesting, but her English accent is a bit hard to listen to.

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".


Re: The Veil

Yeah, interesting indeed! The accent didn't bother me. smile


Re: The Veil

Couldn't even get all the way through the first episode.
Very slow and boring.

Re: The Veil

That is ve(il)ry disappointing to read...

Given that the show at least has a 6.4/10 @ IMDb, I might still give it a shot some day.


Re: The Veil

I really enjoyed the first two episodes and I'm looking forward to watching the third today.

I wouldn't call it slow at all.

Re: The Veil

1st halve of episode 1 starts with over a dozen smoking-scenes, most closeup and where smoking or antisocial smoking behavior is the only content presented!
Tthat not just disturbinglyannoying but rather disgusting, especially since no apparent reason is noticeable - aside from tobacco lobbyism WTF!!! Even the recap shows her smoking as something "important"

... but even without that, drama, script, dialogues and character built up - are all over the place... so wrong, absurd and boring
Elisabeth Moss seems to be supposed to depict some kind of female 007, well with the right writing & directing she might even pull that off - but not in this show, i was only instantly reminded of idiot-kostner idiotic-waterworld idiot-"smoker"-badasses, just annoyingly embarrassing ^^

... skipped through E02+03, no improvement, seems to even get worse -> so OFF it goes big_smile

its "bad", no recommendation here
