Excellent Show! Why was it Canceled???
8 June 2018 | by HugomarinkSee all my reviews

What a pleasant surprise this show is. It was recommended to me by a friend who is a fan of the Quarry novels. I have read one of the Quarry books (the first one in the series) and it was nothing like this show. The show focuses on the origin story of Quarry, which was not covered in the book I read. Maybe this material is covered in other Quarry books? Regardless, the show stands on its own. No knowledge of the Quarry character needed to dive right into this series. I opened my review calling the show a "pleasant surprise," but the show itself is anything but pleasant. This is a dark, gritty, and unsettling show about a soldier returning home from Vietnam trying to find his way in society, who ultimately ends up involved with the wrong people. I thought the Quarry novel I read was just OK but this show is gripping from beginning to end. Extremely well done television and one of the better shows I've seen in recent years. I was very disappointed to find out the show was canceled after one season. What were they thinking? This is a show that deserves to keep telling its story.
