Starring Stanley Tucci, David Tenant, Dolly Wells, Lydia West
This is a new mini-series released on Netflix, consisting of four episodes. I wanted to see it mainly because of Stanley Tucci who is one great actor.
This series tells the story of a prison inmate who is about to be executed that helps from the inside in solving criminal cases. It is a phycological study of violence as part of human nature.
I wanted to be vague in going into the story because the less you know the better. I have to say I was not expecting much from this series, but the story got so interesting and more suspenseful as the story progressed. At least for me, the story was not predictable and that kept me impatiently waiting for how it would all unfold.
Stanly Tucci gives another excellent performance. He shines as Jefferson, a character who is so well-written and just perfectly brought to life by Tucci. The series counts on a great cast.
I enjoyed the series a lot. From the dialogue to the suspense, it is a phycological thriller that is worth watching.
