Unpopular opinion but he looked good and dare I say it do-able with the mountain-man beard. Sue me. ;P
I find he looks MORE shifty without it actually.
I also thought it was an okay opener...mostly background music for me. Will probably do a rewatch, but right now I was not feeling it like I had been feeling it thought I did feel they set up the season nicely.
I did find Eddie's story sad. I know how I feel about my gym time and it does make me wonder how all the surgery are effecting his output.
