Quirky Dark Comedy
14 September 2019 | by yellowgirlySee all my reviews

I haven't seen a show like this in a while and it is such a refreshing treat. Reminds me of True Blood minus the monsters and the bayou. Kirsten Dunst and everyone in this show totally nail their roles. My only complaint is the accents... I grew up in Florida and as much as Hollywood tries to get it right... Florida is not "the south" so not a whole lot of "twang" going on except for mayyyybbee Jacksonville or along the panhandle since it's so close to the FL/GA line. Other than that? The whole idea of this show is brilliant. Great story, great direction, great acting. Loving it so far.
