I think the story is rushed (Fan Creations)

Not necessary because it explores less than the videogame, but more because I think the new trend of every "prestige" TV show having only 9 episodes, 12 at most, is really harming storytelling in this format. Because we're serialized, moving from one essential plot beat to the next, there's no downtime from the main story. No opportunity to put characters in one-off situations. No chance to to tell different kinds of stories, giving us a greater picture of these characters. And these shows do take these opportunities, it risks coming at the expense of the main plot.

That's exactly what's happening here. Henry and Sam could've used more episodes. Maybe another or even two more in Jackson. But we gotta get a move on -- we only have nine episodes.
