A incredible nightmare with a happy ending
Verified purchase
Very well written, directed & acted tale of horror that seems at times like a documentary about humans who appear to be normal & functional but are tormented & controlled by subconscious trauma PTSD that leads to a nightmare scenario...Riveting, sad, idiodic & disgustingly vulgar at times. Only adults with a strong stomach & balanced psyche should consider viewing this. Too bad our society & movie censorship allows producers to make this type of humorless & degrading trash.....but some scenes are so well acted & realistic that as an artist/writer l found it to be very truthful & revealing of what humans are really about. Individual performances by the main actors are noteworthy.

Award worthy performances!
Verified purchase
Jessica Biel is spellbinding as Cora Bender! She brings the character to life perfectly! Love Bill Pullman and Christopher Abbott in their roles as well. They are amazing in their supporting roles and give Jessica the support she needs to develop Cora without overshadowing - only contributing to the growth of her character. The story keeps you guessing and just when you think you have it figured out, it goes off in a different direction. It's rare to not have the story completely figured out within the first 5 minutes these days. Beautifully directed and fabulous acting from everyone! Hope this gets some nominations come award season.

Twist-o-flex Fantastic
Verified purchase
I purchased and watched the first episode. This show has haunted me for the past 36 hours. It is well done. The acting is great and the story (or what I could gather if it) it intriguing. I can't wait for next Wednesday! Shout out to the cast for creating such a twist- o-flex gang of chracters. #respect I might have to do what I did
With Big Little Lies and read the book before I go nuts. Update: we are now only one episode away from the series wrap up. This show is fantastic with a story line that makes you want to take a shower. My hipster friends and I have been talking about it during our lunch break and we can't decide if this is the best thing we've ever seen or if we all need to get a group rate on ink blot tests.

Interesting mystery for a little but
Verified purchase
it just get too absurd and comical when the detective has a a bizarre sexual fetish of being dominated by a fat and hideous old women. They made the other female characters in the story much prettier than you would usually find in upstate New York I live in nyc but have a hunting lodge estate in upstate the women are not attractive at all. They could have at least made the dominatrix attractive like some of the others sexualized characters.
beyond that its interesting bc in the first few episodes you really hate this women bc she lies to her husband and family and says she was a whore and you just thunk she's the typical lower class promiscuous women who eventually finds a sucker to marry her and take care of her after deceiving him about everything. some things come to light through flashbacks and the detectives investigating that make her appear more sympathetic, but not much. She was still a slutty girl who behaved inn a trashy way but its avg teenage trashy stuff..the kind of lies most women who are not ladies have. mainly this interesting contrived conspiracy of child abuse with upper middle class rich people from new but established American families emerges. it could be interesting but that all falls apart and the plot twist at the end is kind of lame,.
I just had to fast forward all the parts with the fat old bitch who has weird sex with the cop bc she was too disgusting. Once they established that who dynamic they should have left it alone instead of it becomes some weird sub plot between the detective and his self entitled wife and her. That whole thing was really pointless and it was wired whow this house wife who does nothing but go to womens groups feels like she us entitled to having her hard working husband put her up on a pedestal or something. some of the scenes with her middle class snobby friends the wife Ade at the womens group were interesting and amusing but there was no reason for the sex scene with there old fat women. did nothing for the story
there are are all these stupid somewhat underlying themes of men using women if they have casual sex like the younger female cop accuses the husband of the murderer of using her bc they had sex in a photlab in high school and dint speak afterwards. Theres a lot of that stuff which is sort of annoying. it's not true and its almost like male bashing and sexism. The relationship between the mAin detective and his wife, and the guy who is the murders ex boyfriend are the same way. All these slutty women are portrayed as victims when they engage in casual sexual relationships but the en are portrayed as abuses. its pretty absurd.

This movie is a movie about Redemption but it's also an inaccurate description of the real Roman Catholic Church which makes me angry somebody who has a dislike for the Catholic Church it's really very sad....

just an awesome set

I saw all three seasons of this show recently but my favorite one is this 1st season staring jessica beal, who produced or co-produced this. What really got me was the song that is the main focus of this first season. Its a foot stomper. Grab this one too.

Verified purchase
It started off with a bang.. then it gets less intriguing. The plot holes in episode 8 are just jarring. Hope the second season is written better, because this season it was like they either lost th writer that was driving the story OR they just threw something together the last few episodes to get it done.
