    68 on metacritic

    Can Netflix’s campaigning power push this to a limited series nomination despite mediocre reviews? The category is weak, and surely Regina King has the prestige to get nominated in a weak category.

    The first episode was boring, but showed potential and has an interesting premise. I’ll keep watching.

    Regina King is probably winning an Emmy for this. He competition is scarce. Who would beat her? Angela Lansbury for a show nobody will see? Penelope Cruz for her appearance on the poster of American Crime Story? Laura Dern for her brilliant performance on a revival that people aren’t paying attention too? Maybe Merit Weaver can win. But King is adored at this point, gives a solid performance, and I’m assuming Netflix will push her.

    Claire Hope Ashitey was very good as well.

    It’s not good. It’s actually kinda bad.

    It seems that every limited series this year is a flop.

    What I understood from this show being anthology was lead detectives taking new cases each season like The Killing. Are we sure that Netflix will submit this as a drama?

    Lol Regina King, Queen of the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie category. Is the Supporting Actress Oscar next?

    No one said it would be Drama unless you heard otherwise. I was pretty sure it was going Limited.

    I’ve finished episode 3, and it’s fantastic so far. It’s almost like this show was conceived to give Regina King another Emmy (and no complaints there). With no more “American Crime,” this is a worthy alternative. Veena Sud seemed to have addressed some of the problems many had with “The Killing.”

    I don’t understand why an actor as talented as Regina King is getting another Supporting part like this. You’d think after winning 2 Emmys she’d have had enough clout in the industry at this point to have been offered the lead role in this show, instead of the suffering supporting mom part.

    Agreed with you Gabriel, but at least this is a juicy part for her (thus far). She may not be the lead, but I bet, based on the first three episodes, you could make a case for lead actress in a limited series.

    Thank God for Regina King. The rest of the cast is disappointing.

    The first half was prettt slow, but the second half is outstanding! The ending was kinda infuriating, but that’s the point. Regina King’s third Emmy is already being engraved as we speak. WHEW what an actress!

    Ashitey was great in the second half definitely emmy worthy. Hornsby was right up there with her. I guess the show would have a higher MC score if the season was 6, maybe 7 episodes long, because those first 3 episodes doesn’t do the show justice.

    Wow, I binged episodes 4 through 10 in one sitting. This series is fantastic and addicting. Veena Sud has mended her wrongs from “The Killing” with this series. This honestly feels like “American Crime: Season 4” (RIP dearly beloved series).

    Regina King was SO good, and should be a lock for a nomination (and potentially a win) in whatever category she is placed. The entire cast was fantastic (including the two leads, KJ & Fish), however Gretchen Mol was ruthless in those last few episodes, so I did want to give a shoutout to her juicy part.

    I’m assuming this is going the limited series route? If so, this should be high on everyone’s predictions.

    Watched the second episode. It’s not very good but Regina King deserves an Emmy. She is phenomenal. Her final scene is incredible acting. Incredible.
