Great New Series show
19 September 2018 | by DeeB424See all my reviews

I had seen the advertisements on my Hulu for over a month and then decided to watch. WOW, this is a deep multi-layered plot that keeps you glued. I missed a 3 minute section (got a text) and had to backtrack it because I suddenly lost a key piece of information. That's how I see this show, you can't miss anything because then you'll be backing up to find what you missed. I don't like treachery or deceit plots hidden within and it seems this is all about the positive and what if suspense. I hope it stays this way.
