After one episode, you'll happily want to skip the beach to stay home and watch the show you can't help but become obsessed with.

It isn't usually a compliment to describe a performance as opaque, but [Jessica] Biel is revelatory here; she's excellent at suggesting a woman who sees herself as purely a projection of those around her.

September 26, 2017 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

This series is not a whodunit; it's a why'd-she-do-it. It's such a clever conceit it leaves you asking why, too: Why hasn't this been done more often?
