Good Background Noise
5 May 2020 | by johnpwabbajackSee all my reviews

It's not a bad show by any stretch, the acting is great all around, but the script has a few too many dumb moments that hold the show back a bit.

There is one bit in particular where a lady asks a priest why God wants people to confess in addition to repenting, and the priest's response is "because that is what he asks."

Seriously? That's the best they could do?

There are a couple of other minor moments here and there, but that's the one that really stood out.

Also,, we didn't really need this show. Serial killers in general are a bit passe, and there really isn't anything original here. It's a show to watch if you like a crime-thriller-drama-things that doesn't require much thought, and it helps the acting is pretty decent.

On the other hand at least it isn't trying to reinvent the wheel, and thank Christ there isn't a quirky medical examiner.
