    Sounds fairly Hannibal-ish, but having a former X-Files writer at the helm gains my interest.

    I was just about to make a thread on this, I think it will be the antithesis of The Following, bleak and more grounded, could be good, might just be depressing psychoanalytical tosh.

    Just watched it today and it was pretty good. Not Hannibal good but still worth watching a few more episodes. :)

    Nice to see she's outlived her infamy from Brown Bunny, looks good.
    Serial killing getting pretty popular these days.

    Really digging this show. I'm glad that they won't neatly solve each case by the end of the episode. Chloe is doing really great work here (as she always does). Also, glad they gave her a better hairstyle in the second episode. That 1932 schoolgirl look she had in the first episode did her no favors, lol.

    Also, really digging D'Arcy in this. He reminds me a lot of Cumberbatch's Sherlock, only a bit more realistic. Makes sense too, since D'Arcy looks like he could be Cumby's brother and he also played Sherlock Holmes a while back.

    And of course, I love any show that's filmed in Pittsburgh. When the judge said "Go Steelers!" I couldn't help be laugh.

    I like the slower pacing where yeah, it's not a case per episode. I hope they all tie in together into a fuller narrative. So far so good. :)

    The overarching plot about her father is intriguing and I am curious as to what this new killer's deal is, stitching the person they attacked up, and then the girl with the baton like weapon near the end, the show certainly has a dark tension to it. The cheese dad stuff was corny though.

    It just annoyed me because he was cheating on his wife. :( I hate cheaters. And it didn't seem to bother her any or maybe she just wanted an unavailable man?

    Bingo. She said in was a one-time thing and wouldn't even give him her real name.

    I love the psychologist. He's so creepy. He looked like he was having an orgasm when he saw Chloe's character locked in the box in the pilot.

    According to TVLine, the show is being pulled from it's time slot and Bates Motel is replacing it.

    I guess that was it but it made no sense and didn't come off remotely believable to me. Plus if she just wanted no strings sex she'd have found plenty of single guys willing to oblige, the whole thing just made an already cold and vacant character unlikable.

    Bad ratings?

    They said it isn't cancelled and they are looking for a better spot but they basically replaced it with a repeat of Bates Motel so it's up in the air.

    Well it just can't compete with The Following anyhow. They'd be better off putting it on Wednesday where there isn't a lot of competition.

    Man, that sucks. I hope it doesn't get axed. I really like this show so far.

    Episodes 3 and 4 were a bit meh, the psychologist guy is getting weirder and the case was a bit dull. The new case that starts tonight thankfully looks more interesting.
