    Dragging.

    Next episode should be interesting.

    That's my thought as well.

    Another slow episode, but if the next-time-on preview is any indication, then it might be about time for shit to hit the fan.

    Also, the sis-on-sis sexy time was weird.

    Biel & Pullman are great

    Really, you think so? Hmm.

    I have found it to be pretty uneven honestly. Though the last episode was excellent. Probably the best ep of the show so far.

    @RerouteToRemain, where you at? Did you abandon this one?

    I'd say go ahead and do it but just be prepared for some slow episodes in the middle.

    Nope. Watched last week's on Wednesday. Good episode. This show was alright. Could have been a lot better, definitely crawled along at times. We'll see how the finale goes.

    I thought that last one was a pretty damn good episode.

    We'll see how the story wraps up, but it looks like it's more a situation of bad luck and an unfortunate incident due to a night of drugs and craziness than it was someone being intentionally abusive.

    Sad story about the sis. She at least got to have a bit of fun in the end.

    Man, I just started this and am enjoying it so far.

    Bill Pullman is fucking excellent in this.

    I thought it was a good show. We got lucky and the season ended just as we were ready for the final episode. Very sad ending to the whole thing. Not really sure how they do a season 2 here unless we just get a whole new crime story, which I'm not sure I'd be as interested in.

    the lead up was great, the wrap-up was boring. I enjoyed this show until the 6th episode, after that, meh

    it is worth noting that the performances were great. As former posters have noted, Bill Pullman was in top form. The new kid on the block, Christopher Abbott is someone we need to keep our eye on. He's very good. J. Biel surprised me in this. Her acting was so damned convincing.

    too bad about the plot just petering out.

    no, i haven't read the book.

    Finale was pretty good. The show should have been 6 episodes imo. Overall maybe a 6.5-7/10 imo. I felt like the suspense dissipated because they just kept showing basically the same things for 6 episodes and then finally got it.

    I have it DVRd but I'll be honest, I've kind of been dragging my feet getting to it. I'll be sure to give it a look either tonight or tomorrow and I'll get back to you.

    Sad ending? Dude, that was about as happy an ending as was even possible. She gets out in 2 years probably, got the full story on what happened to her & closure, and it turned out she wasn't even raped for months like she thought. She gets to have a full life with her caring husband & her kid. And Detective Powerbottom finally got a real, genuine hug from someone, that didn't involve a buttplug. That ending was downright cheery compared to the rest of the show.


    Nah they said when this show was first announced, it was just a limited series. That's it
