    Anyone else caught this yet?

    Brand new show, all episodes streamed. Julia Roberts in a Hitchcockian style thriller/mystery.

    Just on the first episode and am really liking it. It has excellent reviews.

    This is very intriguing . Think I know what is going on, but maybe I'm wrong.

    It's 10 episodes and each is only about 26 mins long , so it's not a big series to wade through.

    I believe this is the first TV show Julia Roberts had ever done.

    It has a great score too.

    Really enjoying it.

    Believe it came out on Friday.

    Even Nick will understand this. ;)

    It has time jumps into the near future, but they are always in 4:3 ratio, before returning back to 16:9 in present day, so dead easy to follow. It is a mystery though, so the whole point is you are trying to work out exactly what had gone on and what is going on now.

    You say they have put all the episodes on in one go? Always a bonus as I hate waiting for the next one like on Netflix (new to prime so unsure if this is the norm for them) will defo check it out.

    Yeah, all 10 episodes released.

    As they are less than 30 mins long I am on episode 3 already.

    Another thing I am loving about this is that they have used a stack of existing film scores rather than write an original new piece.

    You therefore have John Carpenter's The Thing main theme, plus Carpenter's The Fog and Escape from New York.

    There is a Bernard Hermman, Hitchcock piece, a couple of Brian DePalma themes (think they are Body Double and Dressed to Kill), then Three Days of the Condor, Capricorn One and All the President's Men.

    Finding it a delight and it's great for film buffs.

    Apparently they have between 25-30 existing film scores within the series.
