    Bewitching. No other word comes close to describing a film that is almost ho-hum to begin with. An illicit affair goes awry when the femme fatale is brutally murdered, and the wandering doctor/husband is accused of the crime and arrested. His wife and son are devastated by such goings on, but the fireworks start when the case goes to trial. Lawyers have a talent for stirring the pot. Edge of the seat excitement. Kidman and Grant look grandly chic.

    Another series that is fascinating and repellent at once - an anthropological study of inexplicable beings in an alien culture of the ultra-rich, self-centered, cruel and idle. Your mind shifts between the negligible story and the horrifying social milieu. Nicole Kidman's character wears many many expensive coats, a hair and makeup artist and stylist apparently living in her closet even during her highly personal crisis. The many many many close up shots disconcertingly juxtapose Hugh Grant's naturally aging comfortable face made of skin with Nicole Kidman's unlined & scary face of carved marble. I give it three stars because it's impossible to look away, despite your better instincts telling you to do so. That, in itself, is some kind of modern premium TV art.

    Keeps you guessing all the way through, the cast is very good.

    Beautiful cinematography and good acting by Kidman and Grant, but the writing in this series is a road full of plot-holes. That kid is annoying.

    That's not very good. These Nicole Kidman series start to look more and more alike. she always plays the same character. She has the same behavior and attitude as in real life. Being likeable is not the only and best premise for being a good actress. She has not depth. Compared to The Queen's gambit and Anya Taylor this is kind of embarrassing for both her and Hugh Grant. In 20 year they will look a this the same way we look at melodramas from the 90's. Fake and Pompous.

    Gripping, smart, very quietly witty and satirical, urbane, realistically drawn depiction of Upper East Side Manhattan, filled with ambiguity--a compelling mystery with a terrific cast. Four episodes into the season and have found it gripping and enjoyable. So happy there's a new series of this quality on HBO right now. Everyone I've mentioned it to has loved it as much as I have.
