It isn't usually a compliment to describe a performance as opaque, but [Jessica] Biel is revelatory here; she's excellent at suggesting a woman who sees herself as purely a projection of those around her.
What's more terrifying: a cold, calculated murder by an evil villain or an unsuspecting woman who snaps sans motive to commit a heinous crime?
This series is not a whodunit; it's a why'd-she-do-it. It's such a clever conceit it leaves you asking why, too: Why hasn't this been done more often?
Cora's is a peaceful, predictable existence, if a suffocating one: It's like Everybody Loves Raymond moved to upstate New York - minus the jokes, plus what seems like serious, untreated depression on its protagonist's part.
Another television equivalent of a page-turner...the central mystery is so curious and complex and challenging that you want the answers as soon as possible.
