  • Emotionally Powerful

    I love this show so much. It's an emotional masterpiece. Protagonist Daniel has been released from Death Row after 19 years. He was barely out of High School when convicted and now is a man in his middle years physically. Emotionally, he is a broken teenager who cannot fit in to his new circumstances because of his own brokenness, other people's unwillingness to let him or because his family don't know how to let him fit in. We don't know if he's guilty of the crime he was put away for and there are people on both sides of the issue in his new everyday life. He's loved and hated. I want to cry for him every episode. The story reaches into me and grabs my heart every week. This is possibly the most powerful show I've ever seen in my life. Watch it!moreless
  • Probably the Best Show on TV

    I hesitated to use the word 'show' in my title there-this IS more like 'art', as one of the actors has commented. Just cuts to the core of everything, people are not generally all good or all bad (except for the occasional psychopath/insane prisoner we run into.

    The acting is excellent. I haven't see a show actually take TIME to let characters breathe and interact like this in a long time.

    Sometimes I grow impatient-as one person wrote here, I want to know MORE about the murder/rape, MORE about how the investigation is going.

    But I find myself growing used to and liking the slower pace. It really needs that much time because it is filled with thought and emotion.moreless
  • Hooked

    This show rips me apart. Makes you aware that there are always two sides to everyone. The actors are able to capture the essance of real turmol in the souls of its characters.
  • Season 2 Episode 3?

    How come is seems to be jumping to season 2 episode 4 on the next episode line up? What's happened to episode 3? Anyone know?
  • Gripping

    Moves very slowly but in a good way. It explores themes very intelligently and emotively. I couldn't stop watching and binge watched the whole of season 1 in less than a day. Have just watch episode 1 of season 2 and can't wait for the next episode. Definitely the most underrated show of 2013 for me.

    An emotional rollercoaster.
