Although it's a story that holds your attention, you have to have a lot of patience to wait in each episode for nothing happens.
Ok 5 episodes in and NOTHING has happened. If you haven't watched this just skip episodes 2-5, you need the first for the setup and the other 4 do nothing. Hey maybe I can edit this after watching episodes 6 and on.
This series has the nerve of season 1 of True Detective, the cinematography of Inception, the clipping of the Blade Runner, the grit of The Wire and the family dysfunction of Six Feet Under. It's all the good things of cinematography in one series. Great acting, suspense in every episode and a loss for it only being a miniseries.
I really want to love this show. Perhaps that's why I'm still watching after such a disappointing episode 5. I have listened to true crime podcasts more riveting than this. And I probably should do that instead of setting aside an hour in my week to watch this.This show is sadly underwhelming. I can't believe the positive 9-10/10 reviews. People jumped the gun after the first episode, but the popularity ticker doesn't lie and this show is losing viewers. I find my mind floating to other things and activities while watching each dull episode. And each time I snap back, I realize I haven't missed that much. If I wanted an anthropological look at the rural white South, I have the New York Times.
Whatever they were trying to do with this show just misses the mark.
