Really interesting so far
31 October 2016 | by QuilescaSee all my reviews

At first I thought it would be a bit Fargo, because it had a small town female cop not subject to crazy CSI beauty standards tackling a case bigger than the town itself - with the addition of lovers, but it's completely different. Up to ep 3 so far.

I'm very much enjoying the story writing and the characters. It's a breath of fresh air. A lot of women are given strong characters and the casting is phenomenal. Sometimes I feel that there can be 'much butthurt' from strong female leads, but I find they did it with great subtlety, using familiar tropes and dare I say, using Helen's job for a detective procedural element to make the viewer comfortable.

The lead 'Helen', taring is a full faceted character that we are seeing more of each episode. Other characters such as Camilla and her sister have been given a lot of depth and complication as well and I want to follow along with their stories too. - see no spoilers.

I'm also very much attached to the future of the lovers Philip and Tyler. I have long accepted that this generation of films and books will always exist coming out stories and I am not against them. I am also not against alternate universes where everything is acceptable. Of course it shouldn't need to be this way, however, depending on where you are, everyone's freedoms may not be the same. So far, I feel that there are good writers giving people fair representation (as of yet, it is ep 3 so far) and that they are in safe hands.

On another note, I thought Helen's husband looked familiar, maybe his role was very similar to the husband's in the Medium staring Partricia Arquette. But nope, Tommy from Shawshank didn't die! After passing his higher school exam (or the equivalent in America), he's found a loving foster home (with parents whom he still visits) and is now fostering kids himself. Andy Dufresne must be very proud.
