Goofs

The prison cell is not how a serial murderer would be held, and is clearly engineered to facilitate the series' plot points. A tether would prevent the inmate from changing clothes or using a restroom, if there was even one within reach of the tether. And the evidence of his crimes (the journals) certainly wouldn't be in the cell. See more »

Rushed but not BAD for a pilot, Give it a chance!
26 September 2019 | by jssmccauleySee all my reviews

For a pilot episode it seemed a bit rushed, it was as if they were throwing a lot out at the viewers to keep them captivated and wanting more. Was it horrible? No, I still enjoyed the episode and the overall premise of the show itself is what's making me want to continue watching. His father is an infamous SERIAL KILLER!!!!! It's not going to be everyone's tea but if you are into crime/killer drama like me, then this may be for you. So many shows are cut short before even getting to show us what they got, try not to judge to much based off the pilot.
