Chad Hodge and Blake Crouch have created what is becoming one of the finest series on television. Exceptional sensitivity to good vs. evil and attempting to define which is which, and the manner in which two bright and talented people who have tainted pasts work out their lives in crime is unnervingly well acted by a brilliant cast.
Letty Raines (Michelle Dockery) is a thief and con artist whose life is always one wrong turn, one bad decision, from implosion. Which is just how she likes it. Fresh out of prison, she's attempting to stay afloat. But when she overhears Javier, a hit man (Juan Diego Botto) being hired to kill a man's wife, she sets out to derail the job, sending her on a wild collision course with the charming killer, and entangling them in a dangerous, seductive relationship. Add to this Letty's need to see her son Jacob (Nyles Steele) who is being held by Letty's sot of a mother (Lusia Strus) and her live-in boyfriend (Joey Kern), Letty's parole officer Christian (Terry Kinney), and a host of other fascinating characters and the ensemble casting is excellent.
This is one of the finest series new to television this year. Hopefully it will be continued into next year.
