Rather straightforward story that could have been told in 90 to 120 minutes.
15 November 2018 | by TxMikeSee all my reviews

We have Amazon Prime so I was able to stream this through my Roku.

It stars Julia Roberts, who was also a producer, as Heidi Bergman. She is a therapist assigned to help returning military men adjust to being home again and to develop the temperament and skills necessary to get into the workforce.

At least that is what we are told in episode #1. But not everything is as it seems and there is something very experimental going on.

I like Julia Roberts, and she is fine here, but as producer I suspect her main goal was to make a good chunk of money from Amazon. There really isn't anything much new here, it could have been a pretty good 90 minute movie, but the story is stretched out over 10 episodes, as has become the new mode of operation for sources like Amazon and Netflix. Which is fine for those who want to spend time leisurely watching everything unfold slowly

Count me among those disappointed with this series, it is much ado about very little.
