I'm two episodes in and count me a having mixed feelings about it. I didn't know going in that it was based on a comic book, but the directing (frame compositions, cuts) and acting (very over the top) and story telling (one dimensional characters, lurid) led me to that conclusion early on.

I have a problem with Pacino's performance in that he is basically doing "Jew-face". Yes, I know it's acting, etc etc, but how is it any different than a white actor doing black-face or yellow-face?

And I have a discomfort with portraying the very real atrocities of the Nazis against the Jews for comic book shock value. But that's just me.
