Pretty decent so far
14 November 2020 | by sagarshares7854See all my reviews

I started watching this show recently with a high note of caution, given the preceding comments and reviews all over the Internet.The imdb description too calls the relationship a "predatory" one.From what we know so far about the characters,neither Eric nor Claire fit this definition.Claire is an English teacher who has just moved to a new school.She's very attractive and the "seniors" immediately take a liking to her.Eric is a student in her class and through repeated "coincidences",Claire and Erik keep running into each other.I think this part could've been chalked out better.Overall,I feel the show is a bit handicapped by it's short run-time.The complexities of each character could've been better explored in a 40-45 minute/episode show.

Kate Mara and Nick Robinson are both great in their roles.Will continue watching this.
