I am 3 eps into this 4 episode series, and so far I find it pretty darn watchable. I came for the cast - specifically Tennant and Tucci - but it is Atkins Estimond stealing all the scenes as a serial killer with a photographic memory. The guy is comedy gold.
Overall storyline is kind of an odd duck, sort of a "death row inmate who can solve crimes" meets a series of unfortunate events.

Dialogue is snappy, and the performances are all way above board.

I liked the show, but it's kind of weird. The premise sounds like somthing on CBS 20 years ago, mashed in with a BBC dark comedy. The two parts hardly overlap, although they are part of one story and after three episodes I couldn't see, how they will end this in only one more episode.

I was pumped for this given the cast, and after watching the first episode not sure I will continue. The stuff with Tucci was great, but man what a terrible premise to set this all in motion. Very frustrating to watch the Tennant stuff go down because someone refuses to listen, and someone else refuses to just actually say what happened.
