And that's about the least impressive part of it. There is nothing gratuitous about this beautifully filmed pilot, except perhaps the repetitive product placements of Parliament cigarettes and Absolut Vodka (with their similarly spare package design and navy-on-white color schemes). If it's an indulgence at all, the sensuality of this first episode is only a personal touch that frames, but should not (if subsequent episodes are successful) overshadow development of underlying plot elements. Family secrets, partially repressed memories, small-town collective neurosis, all are in the offing at the outset. There is a great deal of booze, which any boozer, present or former, will appreciate. Booze, lies, pain and crime all seem to flow, actually or incipiently, towards a possible crescendo, or at least, that's what one would expect, given the way hard liquor tends to figure in great mystery dramas.

I give a hesitant nine, expecting more of the same in latter episodes but better, especially from the likes of Amy Adams, Patricia Clarkson and Henry Czerny. In future episodes, Czerny should be more than just a a semi-eminence grise as he is here in the pilot episode. He's played villains (including a sex criminal) brilliantly in the past. It would not surprise me if he were to do so again here, so let's wait and see.
