This popped up on the Net a few months ago but I had to skip it for a variety of reasons.
This weekend, Sundance Channel ran it as a marathon and I saw all of it.
So should you.
As a crime drama, this is something new. It’s not Forbrydelsen or noir. It’s a not a procedural or hard-boiled. It’s as if a crime story was done as a literary novel. Don’t try to anticipate the story or you’ll go mad while you watch. Just take the ride. It’s worth it.
Elisabeth Moss is the lead. I’d seen so few episodes of Mad Men that I couldn’t place her. I hope Mad Men fans can get past “That’s Peggy!” when watching it.
