The acting in this series is very good on Showtime. However, this is for adults. Skillful writing and direction. The haunting theme song is well- it stays with you. Ruth Wilson is a very versatile actress – I’ve seen her in a very different role on “Luther”. There is certainly a lot of nudity and rather explicit sex scenes if you are squeamish.

I’ve seen the first 2 episodes and I would recommend it for adults. Ruth Wilson really shines in this. So far every week shows the unfolding story from 2 points of view, hers and his. Interesting how they aren’t identical. Slowly the story unfolds without all questions being answered. There are candid sex scenes.
