I recorded this and watched it today. I liked it well enough to start taping the series. Katey Sagel and Ron Perlman really lead the rest of the cast, who are fun to watch as well. It seems gritty as the other FX dramas.
Star of the episode was, surprisingly, Toyman. Showed him as way more of a threat than he's ever been before. I call major bullshit on Killer Frost offing the Shade, though, and that was a rough way for Grodd to go.
