    Has anybody watched it? It's all very juicy with the twisty plots you'd expect from Desperate Housewives and Footballer's Wives.

    Starting with episode 4. This is such an addictive guilty pleasure!

    The plot thickens, and thickens and thickens!

    "He...he's my real father"*

    Oh for heaven's sake! It's like 4 seasons of Revenge crammed into 8 episodes!

    We watched the first episode over the weekend. Wasn't sure what to make of it and found Michael C Hall's accent a little distracting, then during the last five minutes of that episode, we were hooked. I couldn't see the Footballer's Wives vibe you picked up on and thought it was more like BROADCHURCH.

    Episode two and all that changed, I totally got the FW vibe, especially with Sia and her parents as they try and cover their tracks. I also thought the opening scene to the second episode was brilliantly done by going over old scenes while incorporating scenes we hadn't seen. Really looking forward to episode 3 tonight. It'sd full of all kinds of mystery with plenty of possible scenarios.

    I was shocked, but totally loved the angle they went with the Marshall family.

    I agree, but he's also the executive producer or something so maybe it would never have happened without him.
    I guess it was a matter of timing since he was already in the neighborhood (filming The Crown).

    Accents can be a strange thing. On the one hand, I can spend a good portion of an episode distracted by something like this, however, if the actor plays a convincing role and I start to connect with the character, it all changes. I was speaking with wifey about how the second episode was that good that I completely forgot about the way he spoke and a great plus is forgetting the connection with DEXTER. It is no more about the actor and more about the character and his story.

    Good point about The Crown, I'd forgotten he had joined that series.

    Now that's funny because I started to make the connection with DEXTER:D (I usually think of him as the SFU guy).
    Only goes to show how different our associations and interpretations can be:)

    It's Broadchurch on steroids.

    Ha! I remember doing SFU in between seasons of DEXTER and had a hard time trying to separate the two :D


    We did episodes 3 & 4 this evening and it just gets more twisted and torn between demanding to know the whole story and not wanting it to end.

    A more important question would be "why haven't you watched it yet?"



    :D

    Oh dear! That's like watching SINS and DYNASTY at the same time.
