1 Bryan Cranston y Giovanni Ribisi
Both shine in a series that prioritized bringing together a cast of notables. But of course, the name of Cranston after passing through Breaking Bad is the standout. If there were doubts about his career after Walter White, her first comeback role on TV confirmed a fruitful destiny. In the dual role of villain and producer / creator of the series, Cranston He also knew how to masterfully choose the protagonist, a Giovanni Ribisi that far from the secondary roles of the cinema, he also shows off with this racial impostor as the protagonist of the series.
Ribisi What Marius and in the skin of Pete stands out by doing the reverse path of that Walter White: from a swindler of many lights and greater pretensions to a young family who tries to leave his past behind. Cranston the same, especially in the last chapters of the first season.
2 Good secondary
As we just mentioned, the cast is one of the pillars of fiction, and not by the poster names of Cranston Y Ribisi, but also by those who accompany: Marin Ireland (Homeland, Hell or High Water), Peter Gerety (The Wire, Ray Donovan), Margo Martindale (The Americans, mrs america) Y Alison Wright (The Americans, Feud). The first three are part of the family of Pete Murphy, now the family of Marius. On the side of Alison Wright, the actress is one of the allies of Marius in his old life.
By the list of series and films through which each of these talents passed, it is already implied the quality of the acting mix that the series possesses, without a doubt.
3 Format mixes
The series presents an excellent mix of formats in terms of plot development: on the one hand it is episodic, advancing chapter by chapter with a “case of the week” in which Pete You will have to help the family loan business for the payment of bonds; on the other hand, circulates the central and general serial history that is the true plot of Marius / Pete.
The fiction finds a particular synergy between both proposals that gives it a different, dynamic pulse that immediately attracts.
4 Their names behind the production
David Shore, showrunner of House Y The Good Doctor, is the one who co-wrote the pilot with Cranston and he was heading the project until before its launch and then abandoning it. Graham Yost, with an interesting career having produced series such as The Pacific, Justified Y The Americans, took the reins to continue with the fiction already confirmed for a full first season.
The names involved, one or the other, guaranteed a higher quality than the average in the previous one.
