review

Took me quite some time to get through this season, as I am had a hard time getting invested into the story(ies): was the main character Sister Jude or the serial killer? I can’t really put my finger on the exact reason I am not thrilled about this series, despite my desire to like it. The first season, was okay, got really good in the middle and petered out in the end. I think that’s that same feeling I have with this second season. Now I am afraid to get started with season three.
