Obsessed with the disappearance of a 12-year-old pregnant girl near a freezing lake in New Zealand, a brave detective will find herself up against small-town secrets and a side of herself that was meticulously kept at bay.
Based on Steven Soderbergh's 2009 movie of the same title, this anthology series is set in Washington DC in the days leading up to the presidential election and centers on a high-end NYC escort, Christine (Riley Keough), who offers clients "the girlfriend experience" while leading a double life as a young attorney in training.Written by
So far I have watched 3 episodes. It was an alluring title which piqued my interest. So far it has been a satisfactory experience. I consider myself more of an intellectual instead of a sexual person, but I like depth in programs where I can learn something regardless of its subject matter. There seems a sense of emptiness in the mens lives who hire the girlfriend experience, and they are looking for some form of happiness but the vibe I get is after meaningless stranger sex and having wasted a lot of money they might feel even more empty afterwards, because the experience is fake and she has many other "boyfriends". There is another good lesson to learn, that it is unwise to trust anyone or let anyone live in your house or else they will steal the money from your drawer, it reinforces the principle in my mind that No Good Deed Goes Unpunished and Don't Trust Anybody. I look forward to watching the succeeding episodes.
