I like it a lot. But some of the integral parts are cheesy. I like the dreary, hopeless feeling of Easttown and it’s inhabitants. The kids, so far as as acting goes, have been phenomenal. The baby’s father, his white trash girlfriend, the deceased, Mare’s daughter. They’re almost flawless. As is Winslet’s boss, the older black man. Winslet is very good too though certain little things annoy me here and there. The part of the show that bothers me is the manner in which it tries to point the audience in a certain direction, so far as who the killer is. It reminds me of how The Killing used to end episodes in season one. It’s not as heavy handed but I wish that aspect of the show was written more subtly and was more consistent in tone with the rest of the show. Either way, it’s very good.
Spoilers ahead. I forget how to hide them.
I think it’s the ferret looking priest. He’s too odd and creepy. I hope it’s not him though. Would be cheesy to me. In addition, @Beer
or anyone else who’s seen it...did you pick up on how Mare’s daughter told Winslet that the victim left down the trail without saying anything at all to her...but then her story changed when she was speaking to the younger male cop. At that point, Mare’s daughter told him that the victims said something (I forget what) and then left. Could be pointless. But I picked up on her story changing. And no one really seemed to grill her daughter as to where she was after the incident and the next day.
