One of my New Favorite Shows!!!
30 September 2019 | by Pumpkin_ManSee all my reviews

Out of all the new shows starting this fall, Prodigal Son is definitely in my top 3. It reminds me so much of 'The Silence of the Lambs' Tom Payne, who played Jesus on The Walking Dead stars as Malcolm Bright, a disgraced FBI agent that now works as a criminologist. His father, Dr. Martin Whitly is actually a serial killer who killed over 20 people back when Malcolm was just a child. Malcolm is good at his job because of this, and can see things from the perspective of the killer. When a case becomes too difficult, he's forced to go visit his father and get his expert opinion on what the killer's next move is. Here's where it resembles some aspects of 'The Silence of the Lambs' I would definitely recommend PRODIGAL SON!!!
