The Confession is very intriguing
6 April 2011 | by danichick007See all my reviews

I love the seasons of "24" so I wanted to see Keifer Sutherland in another role. His character is similar to that of his "Jack Bauer" character but different enough to still be interesting. I like the unfolding "self realizations." Good plot, some surprises I didn't see coming which adds excitement. I'm looking forward to the upcoming episodes but with each one were at least a little longer. Keifer Sutherland is perfect for this role and the confession aspect of the series is new and different to me. The church and confessional bring a quiet depth to this series. I love the flashbacks and hope their frequency increases as the chapters unfold.If I had to sum up The Confession in a couple of words I would say it is intriguing with mysterious depth.
