Great thriller show

I really enjoyed this show, it's a great mystery-thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Kaley Cuoco is fantastic, it's nice to see her in a different role. I've never watch a crime show that was as original and unpredictable as this one. There is a lot of f-bombs in the show. Kaley's swearing fits the situations she's in, but her friend, Annie, drops the f-bomb a lot for no reason. I find her character a bit annoying so that may be why I find her swearing more annoying, but just a heads up about that. There is a sex scene in the first episode, but it is only a few seconds and doesn't show much. There is another in the second episode that last a bit longer and shows a lot more nudity (the guy is shown from behind completely naked). Also, there is a LOT of alcohol consumption and alcoholism in general. All in all a great show, I was able to look past the few things that annoyed me and enjoyed it. I'd say 14+.

F**king stupid series - just utter nonsense

It’s f**king shitty series. It’s just going and going and going. Bad actors and super bad direction. Had to stop watching this series after 2nd episode of season 2. It’s wastage of time. Utter nonsense. Only good thing about the show were the transitions used in between clips. That’s all.
