All there but the writing...
9 July 2019 | by UnknownianSee all my reviews

All there but the writing, and perhaps the directing as well. Too bad they shoot these a season at a time. They are stuck with a season worth of mistakes they may have improved on if they didn't have a schedule to keep.

I've watched both weeks. I like the lead actress, and I liked her in Shameless as well, although I like her Shameless dark hair much better. As long as the camera is on her, or Richardson, it is somewhat captivating, but the rest of the cast in this show is there just to be weird, or for the politically correct mixed racial sexual relations, and dead bodies on slabs being chopped up for autopsies (shock therapy, sickening, been there seen that), and of course when her memory returns we'll discover she is gay, and happily married to Richardson.

In summary, I think they could have had something here, but instead they decided to go with "HBO like" played out formula baloney, instead of paying a competent group of writers to bring that novel to life. I gave it a 7 reluctantly, perhaps with hope the show improves as it goes along, but a story is only as good as it's writer, and I haven't seen anything creative yet except the effort put forth by Greenwell.
