Olsen seems to be doing a bit of a Scarlet Witch variant.

Watched "Candy" on Hulu and it was terrific. Not sure I want to invest time into another series of the same incident.

But also considering cause....David Kelley. Ugh.

The consensus amongst the reviews seem to be that Olsen is great, the rest is meh.

There was a jail shower sequence where she shows ass and some side boob. It's a far shot, though. Maybe you should watch Martha Marcy May Marlene if you want to see her naked.

Done with another series. I almost feel like watching Candy again to compare. Yes, Elizabeth Olsen did a great job. Pretty brutal murder.

I had no idea about this story or case since I was 6 when it happened or the other Hulu series but this had Jesse Plemens and Lily Rabe so in my book it was better.

Not a huge Olsen fan but she was great and maybe Emmy consideration?

They must have spent a fortune on the music licensing since every episode has at least 2 or 3 songs.

The scene where Candy was confronted by Betty with the axe was terrifying and she was twice the size of Olsen.
