Presentation was key
7 July 2019 | by mmonetaSee all my reviews

This could have been great, but the decision to present this week by week instead of as a season drop makes watching it painful. Each of the first two episodes slowly builds to... the end of the episode. By the time the next episode shows up a week later, we're completely disengaged. This is a serial, not a procedural. Imagine someone swiping your novel each time you get to the end of a chapter - for a week. Yeah, not fun. We'll wait until the season is over and the series shows up on one of the networks that treats viewers better (Netflix, Prime). In the meantime I'll just read the novel.
