Early reviews on the first couple episodes haven't been too kind. I'll likely pass on this tonight, but may revisit if it ends up improving.

I thought the first episode was pretty good. It held my interest and set up what looks to be a good mystery.

Good to see Joan Allen again, and playing a politician. I loved her in the (overlooked) film The Contender.

Andrew McCarthy plays a good creep.

I have been watching, but haven't been posting. Still need to watch this week's episode.

There has been some pretty good twists so far.

Just noticed this thread now - never heard of this show.

Odd that Joan Allen is again playing a mother reunited with her child who's been missing for a long period of time.

Is anyone still watching this? I am surprised but this has turned into a pretty good show. Lots of twists and turns from week to week.

Interesting that it now seems like creepy Andrew McCarthy might turn out to be the good guy who solves the case.
