Watchseries; Southern accents are annoying, fake southern accents are more annoying. Really a bad idea. Also, Wanda Sykes' whispery voice requires the volume to be increased. Watching this show requires high volume which becomes annoying when the fake accents are used.

The whole thing come across fake and forced.

Will Trent watchseries. At this point the show is cute I'm enjoying it. I have to remind myself that books are for book readers and TV shows are for those who watch... not necessarily the same

The main similarity between this and the books are the names of the characters. I'm only in the 1st episode and we're just getting to know all about everyone. It's a little confusing and sometimes hard to reconcile, What I see and what I already feel like I know about the characters. The author has already signed off on all of this so I will trust her judgment and keep watching. I look forward to seeing how these things turn out and the character development. .

You know, the guy from the novels? I was so excited when I heard the Will Trent character was coming to the small screen. *sigh* Maybe some day Amazon Prime will take it over and fix it like they did "Jack Reacher". Did Karin sign off on the changes made on her favorite GBI agent? It appears as if ABC took a perfectly post-modern antihero and turn him in the cookie cutter cop/fed/agent that already dominates network television. The way too self assured and snappy come backs are the antithesis of the Will Trent of the novels. If anyone really wants to the get the "real Will Trent" they should read "Fractured"...better still start from Book 1.

Another of Karin Slaughters books totally misinterpreted. Here is Wills Physical Description: 6food 3-4inches, broad shouldered, lanky and strong with short sandy/dirty-blond hair and large hands. He has a scar on his upper lip where it was split so badly it couldn't be sewn back together properly, another running from his ear down into his collar and another on the back of his head. He has scars from a whip, electrical burns, cigarette burns, and an open fracture. He also has a self-inflicted scar on one forearm from a suicide attempt. In spite of all the scars, he's good-looking and many women find him attractive. He is usually to be seen in a three-piece suit. He's not very comfortable in his body and tends to fidget a lot when he's nervous.

If you have read the Will Trent series, you will not be able to recognize the books, in this film adaptation. They absolutely fail to give the characters, in this series, the characterization they have in the books.

This could have been so good, but they failed miserably.

Just another cop show where their detective is "special", where he's smart and cops are dumb.

He has a color-by-number traumatic child full of cliches and tropes, including a throwaway line about sexual abuse. Check.

He has color-by-number colleagues that together form a web of stereotypes. Like playing Stereotype Pinball.

Nothing about this show is new, original, or creative. It's all been done before and done better.

It was just.....average. A bleary, unnecessary "average"

Did it hit all the story beats? Yep Quirky humor? Check A sprinkle and a smatter of woke politics? Ta Da!

Every necessary trope and cliche? Bingo Overall- harmlessly forgettable.

The first episodes were promising.

It looked like they were trying to find their own unique voice and I sort of was okay with the inconsistencies.

Than the third episode came along and instead of getting rid of my small annoyances with the show they sort of highlighted it.

And sadly 90% of that episode is just trash. There are so many unlikely coincidences that the story quickly went from unlikely to just plain impossible.

Given that info you could immediately figure out who did it, so the curveball the series tried to throw in the first episodes just became a walk with bases loaded.

So much depended on that but it ended with a downer.

Just the scene on the bridge and the outcome underlined all the issues I had with it. I am a very logic person and that was all too unlikely for me as well. Even if I went along with the point how they arrived there and started from scratch. The outcome of that single scene is too unlikely.

Anyway this is based on some books or book. Maybe those are able to tie the knots tighter. This series is just too much unlikely scenes bound together by a very thin thread.

One of the reasons I wasn't to sure about the series was the editing.

It has become a habit to intertwine different storylines. This is a way to keep you interested. Instead of you switching the channel they sort of do it for you. And you sort of have the confidence that if something was about to happen in the other story they switch it back for you.

This becomes apparent in the last scene of the episode as well. During the episode a lot of time was spend to get to that final scene. And a lot of it felt very forced.

So watching this episode felt like it was directed by an alien without the understanding of human emotions. It all was told like a formula but it wasn't natural at all.
