A tough ask considering the girl was buried on his land and he was having, if not an affair, then an infatuation with her. Written by Kelli Hughes

I'm I the only one uncomfortable?
22 September 2018 | by cazmilliganSee all my reviews

I can't be the only one who is disgusted by this grown man lusting after a 15 year old?! I'm trying to keep an open mind, but it's episode 3 and all I can focus on is how the author/filmmakers are trying to justify the relationship between Harry and Nola. This is making it very uncomfortable to watch. It's disturbing in this day and age to find a drama that's main focus is Pedophilia.
