    Anyone watching this?

    Definitely not what I was expecting from Rachel Weisz.....

    1 episode down, I'll keep going.

    Watched it all on fast-forward, will watch some bits again mostly to get a handle on Greta's story, I missed something there.

    Found it entertaining, even the gory bits were overdone in a way that made them comical, blood squirting everywhere. Last couple of episodes tied things up nicely (you have to watch credits in last episode)

    Was surprised at the liberal use of the c-word in an American series, even the general cursing seemed overdone.

    Can't see how there could be a second season, was it intended as a one off?

    I finished this and thought it was okay, not great. Rachel Weisz elevates it with a good performance as the twins. I did feel it left some loose ends, though. Thoughts on the ending:

    Once it was said Genevieve was away for the birth, I had a feeling the switcheroo was coming. I figured Elliot was going to kill Beverly, but then when Beverly talked about never being happy, they had me thinking she was going to kill Elliot. The way it was done in the end felt a bit underwhelming to me. I also find it a bit of a plot hole because it was established early on that Genevieve was able to tell them apart, so why does Beverly think Elliot taking over will work? And more to the point, why does it work when Elliot looked far from convincing when talking to the woman from the group in the final scene? Wouldn't she trip up eventually with Genevieve? I think so.

    Greta's character was a bit of a strange addition too and I didn't think she added much. Also, the death of the homeless woman didn't seem to go anywhere. Did Elliot even discover that she had killed someone for real?
