Review

This HBO drama started well and just keeps getting better, as layers are added to our picture of grey suburban Pennsylvania and care-worn local cop Mare Sheehan. “It’s a big mess at the moment,” Mare (Kate Winslet) growls of her life at one point, and it gets a lot messier before the end of tonight’s episode.

Her interfering live-in mother is wonderfully annoying, swiping angrily at games on her iPad and sticking her oar into the custody battle over little Drew. That battle hots up, as does the friction between Mare and her ex-husband, who is now also implicated in the murder case. Through it all, Winslet is phenomenally good, while never seeming to do very much at all.
