I am currently hooked on this ... but close to giving up. The acting is fine, but it is one of those shows where the main characters keeping making bone-headed choices, they reject the obvious course of action for reasons that are either not explained, unbelievably dumb or simply bogus; you go "what are they thinking?". This results in a growing level of frustration that will soon reach a point at which I will pull the plug. Too bad ... this could be circumvented with little more inventive thinking about the reality of the plot, it's as if they got lazy or ran out of ideas to maintain the quality of initial episodes.

Spoiler Ahead!
Verified purchase
This was an appealing event on several levels: convincing actors/actresses, beautiful backdrops, a compelling mystery/drama story with interesting subplots, "hooks", interesting camera angles and set-ups. A treat to binge-watch. I was horrified and hooked by the first episode. Five stars.

And this is a genre that I am unfamiliar with; I think it might be called "dystopian" and through this series, I have come to be convinced that horror and gloom can be made compelling - even very attractive, justifiable, desirable. Here we have an on-going celebration of the all the wrong things for all the right reasons in beautiful settings and we could be subtly led to think this idea might, after all is said and done, be ok. This thought scared me because this idea is not anywhere NEAR ok. Even when it is done in satire. This is personal, yes, but no stars for this genre.

If ever there is a continuation, I cannot bear that the disfuntional madness might continue (spoiler here) with Jack and Sophie/Dara and to what levels it might descend. This, I think, is the nature of dystopia - complete and total chaos! Not for me.

Don’t like all the angst
Verified purchase
None of the characters are likable. Obligatory lesbian affair. Goes nowhere slow. Everybody unrealistically made to look like a suspect. Too much angst. It gets tiresome. SPOILER: The end was ridiculous.

Horrible acting! I made it through 18 minutes and had enough. With the exception of Virginia Madsen, the acting is so bad.

I enjoyed most of it
Verified purchase
I enjoyed most of it, until the ending. The big twist, was that a morally bankrupt politician, who had lied, bullied, bribed, and blackmailed her way through the season, while covering up her mothers murders, would eventually stoop to having her mother killed to further her career. Not what I'd consider a twist.

Boring
Verified purchase
Sappy. Predictable. Drivel. At first I thought it was on purpose, but then I realized it was just bad writing for network tv. This show is about as edgy as an orange. Watching on prime so at least no commercials, but now I k ow why I watch cable series. Good for a laugh.
