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.
