Anyone else watch the first episode of the new David E Kelley show?
I watched partially because I was trying to figure out why the blond girl in the previews seemed familiar.
She played Dana (Adam Goldberg’s first girlfriend) on the Goldbergs.
(even though I said open spoilers, will put in next post)
I certainly didn’t expect the state trooper to shoot the guy. Sounds like he is in on the sex trafficking thing. Not sure how he is going to hide the fact that he killed the guy.
I also expected somebody to find the ca.
It’s finding its feet a bit, I think, though it still has a sort of “trying too hard” vibe. John Carroll Lynch as the Trooper stands out. Great performance of an interesting character. Brian Geraghty as the trucker could be a good creepy villain - if he ever finds a second note to play.
The two investigator women are ok; I still think their “frenemy” dynamic is a bit forced.
I do like that they’re giving the captive girls some agency, and they’re not just damsels in distress waiting to be rescued.
There is still potential for this to go either way. We’ll see. My wife is liking it less than I am; I may have to go it alone from here.
