"Too Far Fetched"
Verified purchase
I will not be watching this show anymore. It is just too far fetched for my taste. I have been an attorney for over 40 years. The premises of the stories are too unbelievable. Moreover, the detective seems to be as crazy as the killers and he always becomes romantically involved with one of the principals in the case. I cannot suspend disbelief that much even for a fictional show.

The third season of this otherwise stellar series gets muddled
Verified purchase
This series, which peaked in Season 2, takes Harry Ambrose, beautifully played as usual by Bill Pullman, down a rabbit hole of self-absorption in season 3 as he finds himself uncharacteristically drawn to and obsessed by the turmoil in a young (ish) private school teacher (ably assayed by an overmatched Matt Bomer) who may or may not have committed a murder. The supposed link between the two characters defies logic or chemistry, and Bomer's character's narcissistic navel-gazing grows tiresome early on. The show grows interesting when Bomer's mysteriously charismatic former college confidant, played by Chris Messina, is on screen, but he quickly disappears from the scene, leaving only Bomer's whiny insufferable character. Here's hoping season 4 finds a more interesting case.

Enough already
Verified purchase
I have one more episode to watch and honestly will be glad when it is over. The first 2 seasons were really good, but this just seems to be doing the same thing over and over. The character Jaime is just grating my nerves and Bill Pullman looks legitimately brain impaired.

Warning:,Spoilers. Skip this season.
Verified purchase
I don’t know what happen with this season but, like with most shows, you get a good few seasons then it goes south. This show did just that. Earlier seasons were based on the premise the main character committed some awful act because of some underlying mystery that needed to be solved. This season he was just a run of the mill psych killer and killed for his enjoyment of “letting go” of societal rules and getting the thrill of crossing boundaries. Plus it was very boring and the characters didn’t have chemistry with one another.

Why the he$$ is this guy still walking around free man?
Verified purchase
For the love of all that makes sense, will someone please share:

1. Why this character (don't want to spoil) is not locked up already
2. Why this other character follows him around like an unseasoned pro
3. Why we're supposed to empathize with someone who just comes across as a drug addict who doesn't want any help, and who wrecks others' lives?

Ridiculous storyline with unempathetic characters

Still a great thriller

This show has not lost its appeal. It has an immediate hook with lots of twists.

Could have been an hour long program
Verified purchase
Bill Pullman has awkward expressions, imho. He spends the whole time chasing around a pseudo-psychopath, sometimes befriending him, sometimes prosecuting him. Weird plot line, weird actors and acting. I didn't care for it at all, but the first 2 seasons were actually pretty good in spite of the permanent smirk on Pullman's face. Jessica Biel was excellent in season 1, as was the young boy/central character in season two.

don't waste your time
Verified purchase
Not sure how a series died off from the hit Season 1 was, but this was so painful to sit through. I wanted to just eat the money, but my wife wanted to see how it ended. Then she even wished she didn't, just an idiotic plot line & story....
