A familiar yet fresh setting complements the acting prowess in the show
19 April 2021 | by etherealreviewsSee all my reviews

Mare of Easttown on surface reminds of past HBO murder mystery shows that also take place in a secluded town with the protagonist having a broken past. However, Kate Winslet's performance as Mare breathes fresh air to this typecast genre.

Having little expectations, I was pleasantly surprised as the pilot built up the premise and characters in an engaging manner. Mare is detective sergeant of Eastwood PD and is a divorced grandmother. All characters are well written and performed flawlessly.

Similar to other shows of this genre, Mare has an unsolved case of a missing teenager to which she is still troubled by in her daily life. The rest of the episode unveils to what I can presume is going to be THE case for this season.

I'm looking forward to the rest of the episodes and hope it remains fresh throughout.
