Watched this last night. It was...ok, but it's the first episode.
I enjoyed it. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
Lots of not so positive reviews. But we'll watch it because I'm a sucker for Black Dahlia.
I got their for a loop so maybe I want there only one. When he was asked to go to the morgue to take pictures of the cut up victim I thought that was the Black Dahlia. But of course the story takes place in 1965, the Black Dahlia was in 1947.
I hope they keep to the facts. It remains an unsolved murder so they can spin any plausible explanation, I just hope they don't bend the facts to for their narrative.
The one review I read, just to see what this was about, was very lukewarm (NYT). I'm in because these kinds of shows I rarely judge by the pilot where they are mostly introducing us to the characters and plot.
I love India Eisley, she is poised to be a breakout star
Olivia Hussey's daughter! Which surprised me, but I guess she was only in her early 40s when India was born. I thought she was older than that, but she was only a teenager herself when she did Romeo & Juliet, and India is a few years older than I would have guessed.
I did not realize she had a British accent until recently. Every role she has ever played the past 10 years was an American
We really enjoyed the first episode. But I looked up some of the history and I think it's going to take a big turn from what we thought it was about.
In surprised you're watching this given that you had to "loook up" the history on this. I'm only watching this because of the Black Dahlia connection. The reviews have not been kind but I'm a sucker for old cold cases like this.
My theory is that when he was with the LA Times he was involved in the Black Dahlia case and dug too far (some stories don't want to be told).
In the real world Steve Hodel (son of George Hodel) wrote a book implicating his father as the killer. I wonder if on this again they'll use the granddaughter for a similar storyline
I had no idea of the history of the case either. Why is that so unusual? The case is more than 70 years old! I'm watching because it seems like it could be a good murder mystery which I enjoy.
I'm intrigued. About this Black Dahlia case I know pretty much nothing, well, near as I can recollect. I think it's more about my failing memory than about the case because it seems very familiar, although I don't recall any details.
I liked the first episode ok, but the second not so much. Couldn't Chris Pine get rid of the frosted tips and have a more believable early 60's hairstyle!? It's so distracting in addition to some of his bad acting. The girl is good. Had no idea she was Olivia Hussey's daughter. Is she actually biracial?
Of course, as we recently learned, neither is her character...
I'll give it one more, maybe, but I really am not into the series. Seems like a lot of fluff around a plot that theoretically could be interesting.
Yeah, what really drew me was the Black Dahlia angle, which so far is almost completely absent.
I'm out after two. The Black Dahlia murder is not enough for me.
I watched about 15 minutes of S3, and just deleted it and the SP. I just found myself doing some other things and not paying attention. Obviously I just wasn't interested enough.
