Trailer up. Looks good. Gyllenhaal looks like a great choice for Rusty. Plus Bill Camp! Can’t have a New York set crime drama without him.

Is there any way to get Apple TV free or at reduced price for a while if you had it a few months ago?

I've never seen or heard the plot of Presumed Innocent --- so I'm really looking forward to this.

Rave review from Variety, which calls it the best TV legal drama in years.

The first two episodes were good.

It's fun to watch two real life brothers in law go at each other.

Watched the first two episodes last night. Really good so far. I got hooked right away.

That text message at the end of episode 2 was an interesting cliffhanger until next week.

But perhaps the biggest deviation thus far from the Presumed Innocent novel and film is who Rusty (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) chooses to defend him against the murder charge.

There is no defense attorney Sandy Stern character here (played in the film by the late Raul Julia); instead, Rusty asks his longtime friend and mentor, Raymond Horgan (Bill Camp), to stand up for him. Thing is, Raymond has just been ousted as DA due to Rusty’s (conspicuous?) lack of progress investigating Carolyn’s death; Raymond also feels extremely betrayed by Rusty concealing his affair with a colleague, especially in the wake of her murder.

Why did showrunner David E. Kelley, whose previous book-to-TV adaptations include Big Little Lies, make that major change in Rusty’s defense?

“I love the Sandy Stern character,” Kelley tells TVLine, “but the sense of betrayal that is so paramount to the series, I wanted to mine that with Raymond as well.

“We think of infidelity as being just between husband and wife, but the tentacles go much further — they invade friendships,” Kelley notes. “Rusty, [wife] Barbara (played by Ruth Negga), Raymond and [his wife] Lorraine (Elizabeth Marvel), they were a foursome. They’re friends, and that equation was severed by the infidelity.” (As on page and screen, Barbara knew of Rusty’s affair long before Carolyn’s death.) “Raymond’s political career was perhaps crippled by this affair and Rusty’s inability to be straight with him,” Kelley adds. “Keeping that sense of betrayal in the Rusty/Raymond relationship and infusing the trial with that interested me. It wasn’t a question of getting away from Sandy Stern but leaning into Rusty/Raymond.”

That might actually help you, as you won't notice the changes.

Agree and then it also triggered me to remember the ending to the movie. I hope they changed it. IF not it will still be a fun ride by the looks of it.

Chicago set crime drama, Moran!

Watched the first two episodes. I like it. The dynamics are fun here. Jake was a great choice because you can see both why Rusty was admired and why everyone could plausibly believe he was guilty as well. There’s a messy chaotic energy to Jake in this role. Loving Bill Camp. I will miss the Sandy character, but more Bill Camp will more than make up for it. The show is well made, too. The episodes look great and high-quality. This feels like prestige TV.

Wow there are major, major changes from the book now. That last reveal was much more from David E, Kelley’s The Undoing than from this source material.
I do like it. The greatly expanded family dynamics are interesting. Plus we got confirmation that Sandy Stern exists in this world, even if he’s not on the show.

I had forgotten that Jake Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard are brothers-in-laws. That must be fun to play off each other. Also Raymond’s wife Lorraine on the show is played by Bill Camp’s real-life wife, Elizabeth Marvel.

Give Peter Sarsgaard the Emmy now. He is killing it on this show.

dude kills it in everything. I love his demeanor and the way he presents himself. assured, but not overly bloated ego like some. he doesn't get mentioned much and he should. he really should. I just watched him in Shattered Glass and he is just magnificent in it.

Watching Jake perform is so infectious. He makes me want to see more and more of him. The first ep was great.

Was that Marty who got his pelvis lasered by Homelander in the first ep of this?
