This is an unbelievably good series. Each episode is like reading a chapter of a well-written, well-constructed novel, with complex characters that you can love and hate in the same moment. The plot is intricate without being ludicrous, and as with a novel, the show's writers expect you to remember earlier events in the series and never rehash. I've lost many hours of sleep--willingly--watching "just one more episode."
