DAMN what a premiere! Plus we saw famous people butts. And they used prisencolinensinainciusol. Thought I was the only one who knew that song.

I didn't even hate that guy and it was still a damn satisfying death, holy shit.

I did guess right away: he'd be going to the wrong address and killing a guy and there would be no way the police could make sense of it because it seems entirely random. Blundering crime and avoidable death is classic Coen Bros.

Great start to what is currently my favorite series on television.

Yes, but go watch season 2. It's a nice step up in quality.

Each season is its own self-contained story with new characters.

Wow, great 1st episode.? This continues to be the best show on tv.? Ewan McGregor is already killing it.

I just started listening to the amazing Nathaniel Rateliff, and then his song shows up in the end credits of my favorite TV show.? That was way cool.

Wondering how the first scene with the Berlin interrogation will tie into all of this. There was a shot, when the man looked down at his feet and he was still wearing his slippers caked in snow from being taken from his house in a hurry. Later on, Emmett "Parking Lot King" Stussy nearly leaves in his house shoes and there's another shot at men's plaid slippers. Could be nothing, but it's an odd visual detail that made me go back and watch again.

The final episode of last season was called "Palindrome" and you betcha I was scratching my head trying to figure out how all of this comes together.

I think the East Germany scene is just a jab at the "based on a true story" text that opened the movie and every first episode of this series (to quote Lionel Hutz from The Simpsons, "there's the truth, and then there's the 'truth'"), but we'll see.

Maybe they're making an address/identity mix up connection

THIS IS A TRUE STORY. I liked the way TRUE faded out first and then THIS IS A leaving just STORY before fading all out.

True, but I figure at least the opening has something else to do with the rest of the story.

They just picked up a fan. S.O.B. is damn catchy. Also, the use of throat-singing during Gloria's perimeter check was fucking cool.
