I belong to that rare species who have not seen a single episode of Friends.Yes,I have watched bits of it and have always been amazed by its popularity.The last series I had watched religiously was the X Files long back. Someone recommended this Sundance original series and I thought of checking it out.Yes,I saw all the three seasons and eagerly waiting to see the next.
It is about a person who has been in the death row for 19 years for a gruesome murder and has been released following DNA evidence. We get to see his struggles to adjust to his newfound freedom,his family and the society. The story is narrated beautifully.Each character is given adequate time to develop and they connect to you and one can’t wait to know what happens next.I didn’t want the series to end and feel a sense of loss now that it is over.Each episode is like reading a poetry.The dialogues sparkle and there are long periods of brooding silence .The actors live their chosen roles and I am not able to choose a favourite as all are excellent.The complex relationships tend to test you.Kudos to the entire team for bringing out such a stunning,mesmerising and thought provoking drama.
