Allegiance is one of those rare shows that is impossible to judge without seeing a fair portion of the season. It's trying to set up feints within feints, and drama boiling over the action and intrigue, but it could go a lot of different ways. If they play it right, they have the making of a massive hit, but you just can't be sure.
A very niche comedy that hopes you're into uncomfortable situations with parents. Some laughs are there, but how long can we really run with this gag.
Not only are there few shows as solid as Taboo, but almost no show has ever kicked off as well, sucking you in within the first few minutes. Besides, nothing has a character like this, and Tom Hardy is at his best.
