first original series (shortly to be followed by the probably awful remake of House of Cards
and Arrested Development
season four) commenced streaming today. Little Steven (Van Zandt, of E-Street Band

of this world, you'll be able to binge-watch the whole show as soon as you get in from work, just make sure the under-18s are in bed before you begin as freed from the network censors, it's a little coarse. Oh, and if you're wondering, those of us in the know have decided to nickname the show "
Paulie Silvio in Norway
," in the hopes that it'll catch on before the already confirmed season two begins filming.
