Advertisements New series on HBO, starring Kate Winslet. Wiki says it best: A detective in a small Pennsylvania town investigates a local murder while trying to keep her life from falling apart. I thought the premiere started a little slow, but it picked up speed as it went. By the end of the hour, I liked it. I think part of what made it somewhat plodding at the beginning was watching all these incredibly depressing lives unfold. But as is typical HBO, by the end it all started fitting together. I could watch Jean Smart read a phonebook.
