    Just watched the first 2 EPs, pretty good so far. I really like both the lead actresses.

    Almost turned it off when I saw the flashback in EP 2, ridiculous coincidence. But hey, Les Miserables and Great Expectations had a couple.

    Is this like a serial version of "A Simple Favor" with Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively?

    I enjoyed this series. I had a theory about where they were going with it twist-wise. So far it hasn't panned out, but I still have hope for next season. :)

    We liked it. I posted this in the "What are you watching via streaming services?" thread:

    My wife and I binged this over the weekend. Pretty good. I like both of the actresses. However, it started to become a little predictable towards the end. Probably give S2 a shot whenever it comes out.

    I watched the first two episodes. While it didn't grab me, I'll probably finish. Feels like just another in a long line of dark comedies. I like the two leads, so that keeps me interested.

    I, too, finished the first 2 episodes...can't post spoilers here, I don't think. But the twist in ep 2 was so obvious that I couldn't watch anymore. Not sure where the dark comedy is, to be honest. So I bailed.

    Well, again without going into spoilers. By dark, I mean two very flawed people, with tragedy in their recent pasts. Just seems there's a lot of those lately. But that's my own thing. I'll probably watch a couple more episodes at some point.

    No news on a season 2 yet. I'd be happy for the cast, but don't see the need for it.

    I loved it-I was worried after the first ep but the writing really kept up.

    So many series lately have had great ideas and terrible writing-but this series has GREAT writing!

    And I LOVE Linda Cardellini!

    This assumption is what kept me from watching, despite my girlfriends recommending it.
    I do not think it is similar, but frankly-I could not get thru a Simple Favor.

    Finished last night. I thought it was good, not great and a little too melodramatic for me. I did really like the last two episodes.

    I wonder what direction a S2 will take?

    I've only watched the first episode of season 1. Not only was it a good episode that kept my interest, I sat there stunned by the last scene...

    I don't think there's any question, it's dark. It's the comedy part that's missing.
