Well, as excited as I am to see this, I already was questioning the casting of Jamie and Jack. The actors they picked were not really looking how I pictured the characters but then hair, makeup and costumes can do a lot for that
I saw that John Dahl is directing the first 2 episodes, I don't know if this means they will have different directors for the series or they are just giving him a test runThis is cool, the books were great and I am sure that if they have gotten the right Director, the series should be good.
He has worked on a lot of different TV series, like Dexter, Breaking Bad, Vampire Diaries.
edit, I guess movies too, like Rounders.
