In my distress of finishing The Leftovers, I started this series. It is streaming on Netflix. First episode was interesting, so I shall continue to the second. Anyone else watching?

I looked it up on Netflix. Great cast, led by Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup. Watts is a "psychotherapist who secretly infiltrates the private lives of her patients." Crudup is her husband. Stevie Nicks recorded an acoustic version of her song "Gypsy" as the show's theme.

This sounds like it's worth looking at. How's it shaping up so far, @mamarose?

I will be watching the second episode tonight.  I will let you know if it keeps my interest!  My rule of thumb is, if Billy Crudup is in it, it's probably good.

:'( :(  Well, it is still holding my interest, but that is waning.  The supporting cast is very good, though Crudup feels odd at times.  I just wish a different actress was in the lead.  Naomi Watts is not a bad actress, but I think a more "skilled" actress could take this show to so real heights.

Even with Billy Crudup the series fails, imho. I doubt we see a season 2.

Too bad. Not that we need another show in our endless queue.
