After Episode 2, I'm bailing, Mr. Cranston
I'm sure that somehow, someway, the writers will make this come out all right. But after this year, with all the unjustified killings & brutalization of black people, I just can't bear to have it invade every aspect of my life. My first reaction as I watched episode 2 unfold--"why'd they have to drag black people into this mess?" I wonder if the writers gave any thought to the raw sensitivities of black people at this time & whether scenes of their brutalization & exploitation would be palatable to black viewers? I know that at the end there will be a huge moral point to redeem the plot line in this series, but it's too painful for me to watch it unfold.

Bryan Cranston is amazing in "Your honor"
Wow just watched the first episode of "Your honor" and oh my this is going to be such an intense viewing season with this show.This first episode is so perfectly set up and mind blowing-ly good.
Amazing acting, location, story line, and just such an emotional topic.
Bryan Cranston has done it again!

episode 1...questions and episode 2
It is not believable that a judge's son would be driving that car, not due to its age, but, clearly it is not a car in working order. There is another car, yet he picks the one he must know is not running well.
There are just too many poorly done and not even believable coincidences. To me the home looks dark and shabby, the filming looks bleak and off. The mouth to mouth scene is really not credible in a pandemic or otherwise, it is just not done anymore. It was also graphically disgusting. He could have just turned the kids head to the side, he was choking on his own blood.
The bridge scene is also an "Are you kidding me?" moment , whether he actually urinated or not. He is out in the open dumping evidence. He is public figure and one who how should know how to clean up a crime scene. Since he is making up so many stupid excuses, he can't find one for his son who could have severe internal bleeding? Did he even notice?
Vince Gilligan should get some credit for the stolen Breaking Bad elements. Cranston was great there, but have you noticed that is his entire range of acting skill?? Walter White as a judge.

Episode 2 was horrible,
and made me change from a 3 to a 1
Just so depressing and the filming is bleak and weird. What was done and is being done to the poor black kid, I had to shut it off mid-way.

And by the way, I read all of the critics reviews after my impression, they panned it. Almost all of them.
I'm done

Great actors and concept cannot save lowest IQ writing
Cranston and great actors, but the writing here is insultingly bad, the characters aren't well drawn nor strike a chord, including and especially Cranston's. Cliche, formulaic, shallow, insultingly unintelligent at times (a JUDGE doesn't know how to "clean up" a crime scene? Walter White did!) Cranston inconsistently, bizarrely goes from ruthless cover up to portending sappy conscience in a snap, and even he embarasses himself doing so. Don't expect Breaking Bad level anything here - EXCEPT sexism and racism. One reviewer says "painful" - I prefer tone def and WRONG.

Excellent
Verified purchase
It was pretty interested by the midway through the first episode and it only got better and better. I don't want to give anything away. I will say that a couple of the characters were challenging to figure out because they were not done in a stereotypical fashion, shades of gray, which is realistic. I really like Bryan Cranston!!! I finished the first season and need a second season. Please!!

Upped to 5 Stars After Week Two — Lots of Stuff to Work Out
The 5 stars are an upgrade after Episode Two, from 4 stars after Episode One ...
[this part is on Episode Two; earlier notes on Episode One only are below that]

OK, there's a lot going on here, some questions have been answered — e.g., why do they have such a crummy car for the kid? Well, it's bec of who it belonged to — and a half-dozen more have been asked — e.g. clearly Lee has a past of some kind with the Judge; not nec. a relationship but something ...

This definitely about race — stripping the kid to his waist in the courtroom, only black men in the prison cell — but with major twists — the hit-and-run victim's family is a 'white' family ... but a white *crime* family ... there is a great deal going on here.

A lot. It wd seem there are at least a dozen ways to connect Adam to the crime ... but no one's looking anymore bec they've all decided what they believe about it. You can even see the Judge settling into his deceptions — at the same time trying to 'help' Kofi ...

There's craft involved — blood [or some liquid] draining at the morgue ... later there's oil [or some liquid] on the ground at the police auto yard; Adam's inhaler ... Kofi inside a car filling with propane gas.

Etc.

Recall Breaking Bad where one was rooting for Walter White until he let Jane die and you had to stop rooting for him — but you cldn't bec you were so invested in his aims ... and anyway even as/if you cd it was going to take a long time for that support to disappear completely, if it ever did ... and when his family, in that show, cldnt take it even when he was telling the truth, because he'd lied so much ...

Well ... there's some lying going on here for sure ... and you have to buy into a show where you can't be on BC's side — this time from the very beginning ... and the guy has to ['has to'] lie and lie and lie just to keep afloat ...

So you wonder what will be revealed as we go — maybe there are some lies his life was already built on, and we will see people believe what they want, protect [or perhaps 'protect', depending] their families [the Judge, the mafioso, the mother in a shotgun shack, Kofi pleading to a lie ...

It's good. Lots of humanity and hubris, mess and mistakes.

Paul

**

Yes to BC; Interesting Premise; Some Sketchiness ... Give it a Few

The first episode was slightly above-average / so-so and if it wasn't for Bryan Cranston we wldn't even be having this conversation. Obviously he's the bomb — I mark Breaking Bad as best ever, and he's enough to get me to give a new show a couple hours to see what develops.

New Orleans got a lot of films made after Hurricane Katrina and it really helped the city recover. Ages ago now, that seems like, so I'm guessing their film commission is going great guns. Place is crucial in a show like this that seems as if it's going to rely a fair amount on atmosphere, so I'm guessing it's more than just a swell deal for the producers.

New Orleans — race, deep South, swamps, shrimp boats, oil rigs, Mardi Gras, old old old families, corruption [long line of populist 'Boss Tweed' type governors in Louisiana] ... even the intense heat shd play a role in the story, at least I'm hoping ...

The Dave Robicheaux novels [check out 'In the Electric Mist' with Tommy Lee Jones] and Tim Gautreaux's fiction are good for 'what New Orleans is like' stuff. Heck, even 'The Moviegoer' by Walker Percy or 'Streetcar Named Desire'. A more contemporary take wd be Denzel Washington's 'Deja Vu'.

To see what 'Your Honor' is based on try to get a look at the Israeli show 'Kvodo' — https:[slash slash] www [dot] imdb [dot] com/title/tt7181728/ — which has two seasons in the can so far, from what I can tell.

There are some sketchy bits in episode 1 — places where you feel like the writer / director / showrunner took a bit of an easy way out but I'm cutting them some slack to see where they get to in about a month.

Excellent first episode BUT looks dark and depressing
Might update if I see more episodes but I wouldn't subscribe merely to watch this 10-episode show. That's mainly because, based on Cranston's previous roles and the story, it's likely to be really dark and depressing. possibly violence at some point. Most of us are at our limit for such things right now, mid-pandemic.

My Review Buried By Amazo n
First episode racist garbage.
The painting of African American people in this show is just flat-out racists....I thought the days of treating minority groups like objects, only to pepper in a few positive characters (and think you have balanced it out) were over.

Moffat and Cranston should be deeply ashamed. No way this show gets made without Cranston signing on...so I blame him the most.

Let's get this right, a white good son, a son who is grieving his mother's death goes into a poor neighborhood, wants to honor his mother by placing a card, and the writer has a pack of lack kids menace the white kid... covering the age spectrum of all black kids', disparaging every black age group, from child to man threatening the good white kid....and then following him in a car out of the neighborhood????

Having been to hundreds of economically depressed neighborhoods not once did I feel threaten or have anything close to this occur.

The two things you can guarantee.... Moffat and Cranston are liberals and anti Trump (me too), and that a racist could easily misinterpret these powerful media images as validation of their own theories.

Truly disgusting...

Great episode TWO we are going to watch our white hero try to save an innocent black kid???? That storyline should be its own genre in Hollywood... whites saving blacks.
