Kyle Chandler
Linda Cardellini
Sam Shephard

Premieres March 20th


"Bloodline" is a dramatic thriller that explores the demons lurking beneath the surface of a contemporary American family. The Rayburns are hard-working pillars of their Florida Keys community. But when the black sheep son comes home for the 45th anniversary of his parents' hotel, he threatens to expose the Rayburns' dark secrets and shameful past, pushing his siblings to the limits of family loyalty.

Kyle Chandler stars as John Rayburn, who is a detective with the Monroe County Sheriff's office in the Florida Keys when his older brother Danny (Ben Mendelsohn) returns and throws the Rayburns' lives into disarray.

Had no idea this was even in development. Kyle Chandler back on the small screen? I'm in.

This has been in Netflix's development slate for probably over a year.

Chandler did a Showtime Pilot that was directed by Ridley Scott a few years ago, but they passed on it. Once he became available again, he signed on to this show. This show was called "Untitled KZK Project" until recently. KZK means Kessler-Zelman-Kessler, who were the creators of Damages.

I was fan of Damages and Kyle Chandler from Friday Night Lights. I'm in for this. I also like some of the other cast members.

Just starting this and the characters are a little too stereotypical archetypes and plotting a little too on the nose but I'll see where it goes, lot of time for it to improve. Apparently the cast packed up and moved to the Keys for 8 months to film this... Sounds like a sweet gig. Imagine it was parties and then "alright guys be serious for ten minutes"

Like the old Florida jokes too, "Went to Orlando once, was too cold."

I'm four episodes in. It is a slow burn, but so far the writing is good minus one subplot.

Watched the first episode. Wasn't too impressed. Thought it was poorly edited, and the voice over just seemed off.

I'll give it a few more episodes based on the cast.

Barely got through episode one. I thought it was terrible. I agree with RichC2, the characters are not only stereotypical, but I just didn't give a shit about a single one. The writing is also really bad. There was a ridiculous scene where some of the siblings argued (for what felt like an eternity) about a non-family member sitting at the family table for dinner. The one brother's date. I'll watch the next episode but if it doesn't improve, I'm done.

Yeah, after a couple eps this appears to be a southern gothic
Spoiler:
ghost story
, the pacing can be brutal in spots and the voice over stuff better tie in or its just frustrating. It shifts gears pretty heavily between EPs 1 and 2. Also I can't help but feel like there is a

faulty narrarator
at play, this is very much structured like s1 of Damages.

I'm on Episode 5. It's gotten better. I'd say minimum, if you don't get into it by the end of Episode 3, then bail.

Yeah, just don't judge it on the pilot/first episode. The tension, paranoia, and plot pick up a good bit as it progresses

That's why I love Netflix for posting an entire season at once. The storytelling has to change. No longer do you need to have a cliffhanger at the end of every episode. A slow burn and buildup for each episode till the end. It makes it feel more like a long movie than a show.

Quick question, can you actually download the full episodes first where there won't be any buffering or poor picture quality?

Sorry, i've never had Netflix.

Really want to see this show.

You can only stream Netflix. Either via the web or through a streaming device like a gaming console, tablet or Roku/Amazon Fire.

The success of Netflix's viewing experience depends on how good your internet connection is.

Netflix has a 1 month free trial if you would like to try the service out 1st and see if it's worth it to you.

I've spotted Orange is the new black and House Of Cards on Blu-Ray. But they usually show up a few months after airing on Netflix I believe.

Or get faster Internet

I don't know what your family is like or if you have siblings, but for what it's worth that's actually very realistic in some families. There's always that one sibling (or friend for that matter) who insists on including their latest fling in things like family photos and lots of time there is argument about it. Felt authentic to me.

Just finished episode 3. Looking it so far. I like the flash forwards that point to something sinister going on, makes you wonder how it ends up there. I'll see it through.

I was going to post the exact same thing- it felt 100% like real life stuff to me- I have seen similar (ridiculous) conversations in my family many, many times
