As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets to her past, she follows a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Hollywood gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel (Jefferson Mays), a man involved in the darkest Hollywood debauchery. Chris Pine plays Jay Singletary, a former Marine-turned-hack-reporter/paparazzo.

I'm looking forward to this. It looks like they filmed this in late 2017/early 2018 when Jenkins and Pine had down time after Wonder Woman.

I didn't think much of the first episode. And the acting was pretty bad.

I also watched this last night. Pacing was a problem. It took a really long time to get any kind of story progression. Pine's character was very unlikable. He was actually kind of a loser.

I saw that Patty Jenkins husband is actually the writer & creator of this series. Hopefully episode 2 moves at a better pace.

So is this skippable? I'm trying to cut down on my TV watching, but I do like stories about the Black Dahlia, and that India Eisley sure is easy on the eyes (good genes I imagine...)

It's only a 6 episode series. Depends if you have the time or not. Sounds like you don't. But it's up to you. If you're just going to let the 6 episodes build up, chances are you're probably not going to watch them.

I didn't think much of the first episode. They must have purposely trashed Chris Pine's looks in this series. I barely recognized him when he first appeared.

I had the exact same thoughts. It took me a double take. My girlfriend said well he isn't as gook looking as he once was.

But verrrrrryyyyyy slow first episode. I will probably catch the remaining 5 because the gal wants to see it. This would work better if I could binge it I think.

FYI, this is now available on Hulu for those who passed or didn't have time to watch back in January.

It was OK overall. My fiance liked it better than me.
