  • Not that big of a finale, but auspicious for the next season.

    8.5
    This is anything but the huge season finale I've expected, but it totally suits the general style of the show. Despite that, I'd have wished to see at least some big stuff happening in this episode and I don't mean the election of Warren G. Harding as President with that. Anyway, the cast is great as always, specifically Michael Pitt and Shea Whigham, and it does a really good job in making you excited about season 2.moreless
