This series is like eating a piece of cake because it looked really appealing, then you realize it was a dry flat piece of nothing. Leaves you very unsatisfied at the end. Delete, delete...no more season pass.

I wrote about episode 1 and now for episodes 2 & 3. It appears they're following the script where present day, a long with a trial, is intermixed with a past timeline, somewhere in which an alleged crime was to have taken place. If they are only showing flashbacks when absolutely necessary, then that works for me. When a major part, or the major part, is interleaved with the present, I perceive it like a gimmick. Of course this is entirely subjective and probably most don't have the same problem I do. I quickly bailed on both ep 2 and 3, and 3 even has Rachel Bilson who I really wanted to watch. Not bad enough I guess. These are very serious stories (1 thru 3 at least) and while I can like serious, it's easy for it not to be fun. They have good actors, but I have plenty of other things to watch so I'm done.

Most viewers will be too young to relate to this, but this show is exactly what Alfred Hitchcock Presents used to be like in the 50's and 60's. Every week it was a different cast and usually about some heinous crime. It's great seeing some familiar actors in each episode. I hope this series has a long life. At least longer than some of the characters in the episodes have.

Well, wasn't sure about this one -- but after the third episode I'm hooked. I love the writing and how they interweave the story in each episode. I really like the fact that each episode stands alone with a different cast and storyline. I hope it sticks around. It was so great to see Megan Boone again -- still miss her on Blacklist.

I really like this show, mainly because there is a different cast with each episode. It's different!

I didn't care that much for the first ep even though Chiklis was good. The story was one that was realistic enough and relevant, but depressing. They interleaved the story through two time periods (meaning half was from the past) which I generally don't like. It's often done because they don't have enough confidence in their story and so they can try to fool with you. Seems like the case here. Each ep stands alone but it's off to a slow start. Or stop.

The first one's got Chiklis so I'll watch it. It looks like it also has Wendell Pierce, good actor but I hate him.
