I don't know where this show came from, but man, it's good. It's everything Netflix's OZARK wanted (and failed) to be. Great, interesting characters, a fun plot, just the right mix of dark and funny... no complaints as of episode 2.

For comparison's sake, I'd call it a cross between the shows FARGO and OZARK, with a PULP FICTION aesthetic/vibe.
A solid 8 out of 10.

I like everything about Get Shorty, the plot , the writing, the actors, the music and editing, it's great. Chris O'Dowd is a treasure as always and Lidia Porto is terrifying as cartel boss Amara. The story moves along nicely, the humorous and more thrilling parts are well balanced, It's all very entertaining. I'm happy this got picked up for a second season.

Another take on Elmore Leonard's novel. The movie with Travolta was amazing. This show is brilliantly cast and the writing carries on the Elmore tradition of juxtaposing humor and mayhem.
I've watched episodes 1-4 so far and see that it has been renewed for a second season. I can see this running for maybe 3 seasons before it gets tiring and repetitive.
Great entertainment.
Highly recommended.

I normally don't give shows five stars ratings...But, truthfully speaking I really Love this show! The movie back in 1995 was excellently written and performed by John Travolta, Danny DeVito, Rene Russo and Gene Hackman. However, this TV based on Elmore Leonard's novel is WAY better than the film adaptation in my opinion...Chris O'dowd, Sean bridges and Ray Romano are superb. This is a much watch if you're a fan of comedy and don't mind the occasional blood sheds that comes with watching crime drama, this is the show for you.

A surprisingly decent adaptation of Elmore Leonard's book. The characters and much of the setting are different but the spirit of the book and movie is evident. Get Shorty is good entertainment.

I really like the dry sense of humor even when they are killing someone. Good humor good acting good writing. Good show all around. Hope they continue with the good writing in season 2.
