Harry Ambrose: [to Cora] You know, when I first interviewed you at the station, the way you were blaming yourself, I realized it felt familiar. Because I do that too. But the thing is, we're what somebody did to us when we were young. I know it wasn't our fault. I know we didn't do anything wrong. But somehow, I, I don't know what to do with it all.

Season One Review
1 February 2019 | by southdavidSee all my reviews

When unhappy wife and mother Cora (Jessica Biel) murders a man who is seemingly a stranger, in a frenzied attack on a highly populated beach most of the police seem happy enough with the slamdunk conviction. One officer Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) just can't let the case go though and is convinced that there must be more that meets the eye.

I suppose, my lingering feeling about this first season of "The Sinner" was that it was "alright". The performances are really good even if there's not really anything new or endearing about any of the characters. At eight episodes, there was about the right amount of plot to keep me interested but I'm glad it didn't run to any more. Content wise, it was a bit of a slog and I'm not sure that I'd really recommend watching it because of that. There's clearly an ordeal that befell Cora that we're going to find out about. As it turns out, what actually happens is a bit nicer that what I was anticipating.

Views on the second season to follow in due time.
