I'm a little torn on this one, having consumed the episodes over the course of yesterday afternoon, the performances are great, and the plot is gripping, but there is a little too much deus ex machina at times [most glaringly at it's suspenseful apex].
Spoiler!


Also, the complete nihilism of nearly every character makes it hard to root for anyone. When everyone is an irredeemable asshole, how do you come to care who wins?
That's the beauty of this, and the very end of the finale explained (the adviser) why he did it in the beginning of his regime in comparison to now.
