I think they could have easily cut McMillions in half. Also that supercilious, self-congratulating FBI agent really got tiresome.
I respectfully disagree. The first few episodes were fast paced and shallow. It had a “staring at a traffic accident” feel to it. “Look at all these stupid, freakish people!” But I appreciated that it took a more sober turn in the second half. They took the time to let us get to know some of the participants and how their lives were impacted by their actions.
As for that FBI agent, his more annoying traits got a lot of screen time in the first episode, but he was less of a focus as the story progressed, and when he was on camera, he was often more reserved. He sure did have a toothy grin, though. Reminded me of Ed Grimley (Martin Short’s character).
And the real estate guy was a dead ringer for John Goodman - both his looks and his voice.
