I like it. Cinematography was awesome, and the tension.
What really hooked me is that YOU KNOW what's going to happen from the get go...
Season 2 released. So you'll be able to binge two whole seasons.
There are some lulls so be aware of that.

The acting is really good and a solid cast. Cinematography pretty good too. However...
First, it was really predictable. I kept thinking there was going to be a major unsuspected plot line develop or something really effed up....however it unfolded just like I thought.
I could forgive the first point, but what really really irked me was the self importance that whole family seemed to put themselves in with respect to the community and vice versa..the importance the whole island seemed to hold that whole family. Maybe just a peeve of mine. Related to this, I do not like shows where the entire "drama" revolves around different family characters trying to protect each other from anything and everything. This series has a lot of that.
As an example, the mom (sissy spacek) getting bent out of shape because someone not high enough standing in the family can't sit at the main table. And all the uncles and cousins are happy as clams as they sit at the card tables and cheap seats.
I only watched the first episode and it was well done and well acted -- but I just didn't find anyone in that family that I could care about. Also agree with the importance thing. They own a hotel/resort in the Keys, so what.
You may have to check in your man card but give Grace and Frankie a try. The estrogen runs deep but it is a well acted and fun series. Great cast. Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterson.

Though I will say I wish I had watched the season 1 finale again, just to get some of the details back in my head. Gradually, over the course of the first episode of this season it all started to click.
Very good show.
I just looked up in the bedroom and Sissy Spacek placed the mother of a murdered son in that one also. Interesting.
