I don't watch many television dramas, but I think this is my favorite one ever to this point. I wish the casting was a little different for the FBI agent neighbor, but then again his sort of goofy earnestness as a character actor makes it a little more interesting when he decides that he doesn't so much care if he gets a Russian office worker killed. Maybe it's better that he doesn't have that more assertive, authoritative way of carrying himself.
They've done a fantastic job of creating dynamic characters, especially Phil's. And Russel just coolly blasting that security guard (and the look Phil gave her) was just outstanding. And unlike most shows with the complex character development, stuff actually happens in this one.
