I just finished watching it - thank you internet fairies for that - and i tend to agree with you. I kind of liked it. is strange, dark, intriguing. Rises a lot of questions about what happened before and about what will happen.
and yes, i liked Jamie here. its a good role. and one of the things that make it good is that Mitchell has practically nothing in common with Lee except maybe the concern for the future and being tormented y past decisions. but the way of dealing with then is totally different.
