I've only watched the first part so far. I like the acting and writing a lot, but the camerawork is TERRIBLE. I'm so sick of the handheld quasi-cinema verite look becoming the default for everything on TV. It works in many cases, but not in a historical epic. It doesn't make it edgy, it's just distracting. Give me composed, cinematic camerawork a la The Wire.
