stylish, twisted murder mystery
I enjoyed this for the twisty mystery that keeps you guessing, with what I think is a believable and scary outcome. Supporting cast was exceptional (the sheriff ! Peewee! ), setting is stunning, Soderbergh is so good I'll watch anything he does. It's interesting when good guy/bad guy is not as predictable, and one victim is clearly a bitch, yet didn't deserve to be used and deceived as she was by those she trusted.

Murder Mystery in 6 doses- bite size for binge watchers
Sharon Stone as a man eating children's book writer living off the spoils of her wealth in Salt Lake City, Utah; drinking heavily, throwing parties, being philanthropic, and abusing young, handsome artists as a distraction from her loneliness. What could go wrong? Soderberg delivers a compelling whodunnit, even though you know whodunnit from the beginning, but still you want to see it to the end. The characters are written and acted in a very real way, you can relate to them. The best TV does this now. FYI- The best part is the end. Don't miss it! It comes after the credits of the last episode and wraps up the whole story 'Dateline' style. If most of the people reviewing this missed that, they missed the denouement. Could explain the their 1 or 2 stars....

Painful Dialogue
Pulling the plug after 15 minutes -- again. I experienced deja vu -- I tried to watch this a year ago and as bad as my memory is I distinctly remember the feeling of a tragically botched project. I stuck it out a couple of minutes longer this time, thinking that it was just one scene that had a problem. It wasn't just one scene.

I like the premise and love the area it's supposed to take place. Can anybody let me know if there is any payoff to sticking it through some of the most uncomfortable viewing I've ever experienced (in a non-violent or non-explicit-sex vehicle)? I would try again if there were some hope....

it sucked
Now I love myself a good mystery/crime show and the cast was absolutely amazing - the did a great job with that. Garrett Hedlund is one of my all time favorites and he did not disappoint with this.

Despite this show being good and suspense and edge - it sucked. It was constantly jumping around character P.O.V's. Moved way to fast and left out HUGE plot holes and in the end, it didn't tie everything up in a conclusion. You were left hanging, and not in the good way where you are wanting more.

Two stars because I love Garrett Hedlund and Bo Bridges. If they were in here killing it, I wouldn't have even watched this. Complete waste of money.

just ok - hated the ending
it started off pretty good. had an *almost* david lynch feel to it. (other david lynch fans, dont on hate me!) but as other reviewers said, it got worse as the series went on. they really dragged out the whodunit part towards the end. and then it totally didnt resolve anything. i wish Sharon Stone was in more episodes, she was great. Paul Reubens was also great and should have been around more during the investigation parts.

some "just ok" entertainment while we're still waiting for HBO to release the "meat" of the year.
It provided some entertainment while hoping and praying that HBO gets better this year before I give up all together. Divorce was a total flop season 1, season 2 first episode a flop. The second one finally provided some hope. Loved The Young Pope and also praying they bring back another season. All other shows now are absolute junk - violence, crime, or an attempt at some urban shows that provide cliched portraits and it is a tragedy. Now for Mosaic - the first two episodes that featured Sharon Stone were interesting - it was good to see her again. The backdrop was Wintery, Snowy, Lodge Style, and pretty. It was, of course, a murder mystery where they do the setup in the first two episodes, spend three episodes (without Sharon Stone utter than small flashbacks) running around chasing potential suspects. While doing this it was kind of a scattered mess - flashing forward, backwards, and all over the place. Then the final "rushed wrap up" during the final 6th episode was predictable, silly, and unsatisfying as you get the sense they did not arrest the right person. Then they spent 10 minutes of the final episode cutting over to the news, where suspects and others involved where all interviews after the crime was all wrapped up - this technique of a narrative and entertainment is really cheesy. I give it 3 for optics, some of the actors where nice to see again (pewee herman in a serous role and he was great), beau bridges...the acting was good it's just that the script was kind of silly, the whole thing super formulaic, and Sharon Stone was basically a teaser that was not on air very much - like they do in Netflix Braeburn with Sissy Spacec. This is seems to be the new style of trying to entice viewers and save money which is absolute BS where you feel gipped in about the 3rd episode and quite watching the rest all together. I only remained because I did like the main character Joel, could have done without most of the rest, especially the annoying sister of first guy arrested - soooooooo annoying the way they did that. And so predictable.

Help!
Longer and more disconcertingly complicated (zzzzzz!) than it needed to be (filling air time I suppose) so I dozed off at times.
Usual flashbacks as a substitution for good writing, editing, directing, acting to make it into a mysterious convoluted entanglement of suspects, motives & misdirections, but missed.
Typical several murder suspects for us to wade through enhanced by comical, sloppy & not-too-believable police work.
There's another year? Help!

Grows on you
It was a bit hard to get in or fully sympathize fully with Olivia's (Sharon Stone) cry for her fading youth and beauty by chasing young men, but once you "settled" into the show it gives surprising twists and depth, easily missed if not linger enough on the show.
