Honestly I had low hopes for this tv series before watching, but it surprised me. After watching, you'll admin that, Blood and Oil has few really great moments. When I read about new this director tv series, I instantly buy cinema ticket. I agree that this tv series just isn't for everyone, some people won't like it. It is not a tv series for people with IQ below 80. Great action, but original story could be better. I won't tell you too much about the storyline to not ruin the surprise. There is no competition for Blood and Oil in 2015 for the best tv series of the year. Much gratitude toward this tv series, you'll love it too.
