Review:
Rating: [Watch it] / It depends / Skip it
  • This is a well-crafted show that uses expert editing to drift between present and past as Clay slowly uncovers the multitude of reasons that led to Hannah's death. This is a great example of why books should become a limited series instead of a movie, they need more time to unfold.
Read my Season 1 full review.
