Overacting but interesting

This show is interesting but very overacted. Most every episode has a scantily clad woman and lots of cleavage. The first episode has two sex scenes, one including adultery. There is no nudity because the couple’s are under sheets. There are night clubs with prostitutes also showing a lot of cleavage . There are stabbing and lots of graphic scenes with blood and violence.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex

Terrible acting, daft storyline

Paula Patton acting was horrible in the series. Terrible acting. The story line is daft and I couldn't bring myself to complete the series. I deliberately registered on this platform just so I can vent about how terrible the acting was, particularly Paula Patton's. Not worth watching

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (8):
Kids say (5):

This series' breakneck pace appears to be aiming for a breathless, edge-of-your-seat feeling, but misses the mark and instead feels choppy and underdeveloped. There's some painfully over-the-top acting across the board -- and on the part of the lead actress in particular -- that helps deflate any real sense of danger or mystery they're trying to achieve. It's an utterly run-of-the-mill mystery/crime series, with the only substantial twist being the time-travel aspect. Overall, Somewhere Between finds itself somewhere between "meh" and "it's just OK" on the watchability scale.
