Suspenseful and visually breathtaking landscape. I can’t wait for Season 2.
Excellent series. Gorgeous setting, richly drawn characters, deeply compelling story, mystical undertones, indigenous peoples awareness. Can't wait for season 2.
Loved the character development and introduction of clues! Can’t wait for Season 2.
[Spoiler alert] Amateur, first degree script: "How did you get my number?! I'm a cop." Formulaic synopsis: dysfunctional farming family, every one is a suspect, tensions between the two detectives, fling between detective and family under investigation, killer presented as least likely. Unbelievable storyline: new cop in trouble after all nighter, daughter self mutilates before walking into the water to risk her life, wife can't tell if she did it.
Very entertaining show!
