    Anybody see the premiere last night on HBO? Great miniseries. Got that Oscar Isaac cat from Inside Llewyn Davis, Winona Ryder & the bad dude from the first couple seasons of The Walking Dead.

    Brief Synopsis:

    The story is set in the 1980s and 1990s, specifically from 1987 to 1994, in Yonkers, New York, a city north of New York City in Westchester County, and focuses on efforts to desegregate public housing.

    Federal judge Leonard Sand ruled against Yonkers and issued a desegregation order, mandating that public housing for 200 units – possibly scattered-site public housing ("SSPH"), which became the example of new public housing – be built in the affluent, mostly white, east side of Yonkers. The case and resulting politics resulted in national focus on issues of race, class, and housing

    Where angels never dare
    It's been pretty good so far, then again it's based on a true story and the writers from The Wire are the ones that adapted it.

    I have to say I didn't find myself caring about any of the characters in the first two episodes and it's been a bit cliche from a character standpoint so far.
