The truth got lost in the missing past!
24 February 2018 | by Reno-RanganSee all my reviews


I did not think there's more to come just after watching episode one. When the crime had happened, I thought that's it and what might follow is could be a simple courtroom drama. Then episode after episode, the tale had started to take twists. Especially detective Harry Ambrose was the one turned it all. With his detective instinct, the story kept growing suspense till the season finale.

The 8 episodes are a short season. What was once called a mini-series. But it was great to keep the plot tighter. Then each episode being 45 minutes long, the overall season did not have sufficient pace to go forward without a drag. Usually that's how the series develops its storyline. So there's nothing bad about it, just it took its time to come to the point. Obviously saving the best part for the final.

A mother has been arrested on a murder charge. She knows she's guilty, so not making any further complication in the court. But a detective working on that case does not agree it all. He decides to dig deeper into that case for something, a reason, particularly from her past. Without seeing any success, it drags a bit. But towards the end, the twist brings all the changes the tale needed just before the conclusion.

Based on the book of the same name. Biel is a decent actress, but her recent feature films are not making any buzz. This is her television entry with a bang. It is one of the best crime-drama-mystery. Definitely not a masterpiece. On a common sense, it's utterly a nonsense. But it was good in the entertainment aspect. I hope this mystery ends here itself. What I want in the season two is about her two years of stay in the prison. About her struggle to get over those periods. But there's no news yet about the next season. Meanwhile, it is surely one of the best series of the year, which means you should watch it.
