    The Sinner

    Did / does anyone watch this?

    Is it any good?

    I like seeing Bill Pullman get work.

    I watched the first season but not the second.

    The first is ... good to okay. It sets up a helluva great premise in the first episode and you'll dying to know wtf is going on.

    Pullman is okay. He has a weird subplot. If you've ever seen "The Zero Effect," you'll recognize a lot of his mannerisms and tics here.

    I didn't find the ending to be consistently satisfying. There are too many red herrings, the explanations are increasingly implausible, and the show goes on for probably 1-2 more episodes than needed.

    But overall if you like the principals and are in the mood for a crazy/ dark thriller then it's worth watching. (I tuned in because it was the same chick from "The Tall Man.")

    Very cool thanks for the input!

    It all sounded appealing, the only thing keeping me from jumping on board was that it’s a network / cable show. Nd aside from The X Files and the first 8 years of the Simpsons, those tend to be...eesh...

    Also wth Jessica Biel present (and executive producing), I imagine there are many totally needed, relevant and tonally appropriate shots of her ass?

    I liked the first season. At one point it veered into hypnosis in order to steer the plot in a certain direction, and I'm usually weary of that.

    I'm fuzzy on Mrs. Biel's ass and how many appearances it made, but I do recall the show being classier than that.
