Weak story, cardboard characters, one-note performances
14 April 2018 | by altereggonycSee all my reviews

This looks like a sleek European mini-series, but it has the soul of a 90 minute Lifetime TV movie about women wronged by men who are just no damn good. Most of the men are evil, except for maybe one Canadian who is just bland. The villains are cartoonishly villainous, so clumsy and stupid in their villainy that it's not interesting. Some of the dialogue is outlandishly unbelievable. As for Elaine Cassidy, yes, grief and righteous anger are a logical reaction to the murder of a husband, but she has the same facial expressions and smoldering rage in almost every scene for six episodes. People seem to love her, so maybe she's a better actress when her character isn't incensed all of the time. With a convoluted, illogical plot, terrible dialogue, and one-dimensional characters, this series didn't work for me. You can decide for yourself whether viewing is an acceptable risk is acceptable.
