I have never rated an episode 10 stars before...

But wow, what an amazing finale. I never thought a courtroom segment could be so nail biting. I have watched some films starring John Turturro, but not all. But I'll be damned if his closing speech wasn't one of his greatest moments in film to date.

Everything was just top tier, from the writing to the delivery by every actor in this.

I don't want to post spoilers, but this really is how a finale should be done. I am so glad I caught wind of this series, I have been recommending it to everyone who has asked me what they should watch next.
