WOW! This show is amazing - right up there with In The Line of Duty. 10/10


Loved this show but something is weird about the episode data (at least here in Sweden). Various TV guides said Season 1 contained 8 Episodes. And I’ve actually watched the 8 episodes. But in Tivo’s TV guide the last 2 episodes were listed as S2 E1 and S2 E2. :thinking:


This series has a fascinating premise and is a very real cautionary tale for our times - can we trust what we see in recorded (or even live) media? The interplay between what we think is real and what we are seeing keeps us engaged and guessing - Did he? Didn’t he? There is a constant flip flop In our conclusions. The performances were good. Holliday Grainger and Callum Turner give us characters with whom we identify which leads us to believe we can see the truth through their eyes. Ron Pearlman is a favourite actor of mine since the show BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (many moons ago) and I think he did a superb job of being the American the world hates. I give this show a 7 (very good) out of 10. [Crime Drama]
